NOTE: Sometimes the answering system will keep on playing the greeting
when you pick up the phone. This is normal, especially when you pick up
the extension phone at the same time the answering system is picking up
the call.
If you want to pick up the phone while the greeting is playing, please wait
until two seconds after the answering system has picked up the phone.
Or, when using the extension, press the PLAY/STOP/MEMO button if you
continue to hear the answering system play the greeting.

Remote Access

You can access your answering system from any touch-tone phone by entering your 3-digit
security code (the default security code is 123, but you can change it.) Be aware that remote
functions do not work with rotary or push-button, pulse-dialing phones. You can cut out the
wallet-size remote card located at the end of this instruction book so you will have the touch-
tone commands when you're picking up messages from another location.

To Access Your Answering System

1. Call your telephone number.
2. After you hear the beep that follows the greeting, enter your 3-digit security code. To bypass
the greeting, you can enter your 3-digit security code any time while the greeting is playing.
3. The answering system beeps to confirm you have accessed the remote functions and
begins playing the remote functions menu.
4. Select the function you want to use and press that number on the phone's keypad you are
5. To end the call, hang up or press the "6" button while the menu is playing.
NOTE: The answering system answers on the 10th ring if the answering
system is turned off or the memory is full. To access the answering
system, enter the -digit security code after the beeps. If memory is full,
playback your messages and erase some of them to restore memory. If
the answering system is off, press 2 to turn it on. If you want to end a call
while a message is playing, just press and release the "" button twice on
the phone you are using.
