Recording Your Announcement

Before using this answering system, you need to record the announcement (up to one minute long) that callers will hear when the system answers a call. For best results, record your announcement in a quiet environment, without “background” noise. Your announcement should tell callers that they will hear a series of beeps, followed by a long beep before the system begins recording the message.

1 Prepare an announcement. For example:

Hello. I can’t come to the phone right now. Please leave your name, telephone number, and a short message after you hear a long beep. I will return your call as soon as I can.

O P E R A T I O N

2Press and hold Afor two seconds, then release the button and wait for the system to beep.

3After the beep, speak toward the microphone, from about nine inches away.

4Press and release p, when you are finished. The tape resets automatically and plays the announcement, and the MESSAGE light goes on.

To review your announcement — Press and release A.

Turning the System On or Off

Press and hold Ofor two seconds to turn the system on or off. The system beeps once to confirm a change in status.

Automatic Toll Saver

The system automatically answers after four rings when you have no new messages, and after two rings when you have new messages.

Answering Calls

When the system answers a call, the caller hears the announcement you recorded, followed by a series of beeps, then one long beep. After the long beep, the system begins recording your caller’s message. The system hangs up when the caller hangs up or is silent for eight seconds, or after three minutes elapse.

NOTE: If there are any messages recorded on the tape, the caller hears a series of beeps while the system goes to the end of the last recorded message. To reduce the number of beeps and the time it takes before a caller can leave a message, erase your messages frequently, and do not save a large number of messages.

Priority Call Signal

When a caller enters the Priority Calling Code from a touch tone phone, the system beeps loudly to alert you that you have a priority call. You’ll need to provide select callers with the Priority Calling Code (preset to 1235) in order for them to use this feature.

Your Priority Calling Code changes whenever you change your Remote Access Code (see “Changing Your Remote Access Code” in the REMOTE OPERATION section of this manual); the Priority Calling Code has the same first three digits of the Remote Access Code, and the fourth digit is one higher than the fourth digit of the Remote Access Code. (For example, if your Remote Access Code is 1234, your Priority Calling Code is 1235; however, if the fourth digit of your Remote Access Code is 9, the fourth digit of your Priority Calling Code is 0.)

1Your caller dials your telephone number from a touch tone phone.

2When the announcement begins to play, your caller can press **. After the beep, the caller enters the Priority Calling Code.

3The system beeps for up to one minute, unless you answer the phone. The beeps are audible on both ends of the call. (Your caller can press ##to stop the beeps before one minute is up.)

4If you do not answer after one minute, your caller can press 66within eight seconds of the last signal to repeat the Priority Call Signal for another minute.

MESSAGE Light

The MESSAGE light indicates how many messages you’ve received. The light blinks once for each message, pauses, and blinks again. For example, if you have five messages, the light blinks five times, pauses, then repeats.

The light also indicates when the tape is full or when no outgoing announcement is recorded, by flashing rapidly.
