    Worked fine for the first 12.5 months. Almost exactly when the warrantee ran out, so did the machine. It developed a problem where it showed one message on display but when I hit the button to listen to it the only sound was the very quiet white noise from an open input circuit to an amplifier. At that point none of the switches worked! Not even the on/off switch. I recycled the power, reset the clock and, once again, the display showed one message. But, trying to delete the message produced the reply that there were no messages. When I hit the "play" button to listen to the phantom message, once again all I got was the slight hiss of an open input circuit and non-functioning buttons. I called AT&T support who had me recycle the power again and verified that the unit was defective. Their only suggestion was to return it (at my expense) for a new unit. Unfortunately, as mentioned, the warrantee period had just lapsed. I'm a software/electrical engineer with the knowledge and experience to know that fully digital machines should NEVER malfunction like this unless there is a basic design flaw.

    I am an older person who sucks at using electronics, so when I managed to replace my old answering machine all by myself, I am thinking now of myself as a genius :) Seriously, easy to install, easy to use, clear instructions in the manual that comes in the box with the machine, and I like that I can call from another phone, dial in the code, and hear if I have any messages, and if yes, read them.

    This product serves its purpose. Setup was very easy and the product doesn't take up a lot of space. I was able to record a pretty lengthy greeting for my business phone. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

    I Have this system for about 1 month. Everthing went together without a hitch. I do have one complaint, however the answering machine is very close to the telephone and if you pick up the phone handle after the answering machine is activated IE you recognize the caller and want to talk with (him-Her) you set up a feedback loop that causes a squeal that will blow you away. I solved the problem by lowering the output from th answering machine below the feedback level and that fixed the problem. My previous answering machine muted the speaker when the phone was picked up. I would however recomend this unit to friend or foe because after you figure out the feedback problem it is a very good deal. Joradio.

    This device is a great value, compact and lightweight, easy to learn to use (even for technophobes like me) and works as advertised. I had it shipped to store to save a little money and it arrived in a jiffy. One aspect I find especially useful is the ability to access your messages remotely! The directions state that you can do this from a touch tone phone. However, I was delighted to discover that it also works with various touch tone technology, such as a cell phone and Skype. I am getting one for a friend. How many products meet -- much less, exceed -- expectations? Yippee! This one definitely is a rare commodity and I simply cannot recommend it highly enough. Good job, AT&T!

    I have one that just says the day of week. When you are gone for two weeks or more, not much use.

    • A. I had purchased a total of three of this AT@T landline answering machine, two for myself and one given as a gift, and this model is found to have day of week setting. I agree and would like more specific details on the actual date. All three purchased specify only Monday thru Sunday, along with the time, but not the date. This answer is according to my experience.

    • A. I don't know as I never got to use it. However, I had a previous AT & T unit and it gave you the date, day & time. This unit is no longer around that I could find and it was black not white. Call At & T directly and they will give you all the information that you need as they are very helpful with a "live" person to speak to.
