landline using Panasonic cordless

Answered

We have had this unit for quite some time and I had it set up for incoming calls to go to my answering machine when I was using the phone. For some reason this no longer happens.. can someone tell me what I need to do to activate this. When I am on the phone and get an incoming call I can hear the beeps, I don't want to answer the second call I want it to go to the answering machine

Re: landline using Panasonic cordless

The beeps are because you have call waiting turned on. If you are already on the phone, a second incoming call cannot go to the built in answering machine of your phone.

 

It will however divert to Messagebank (Home Messages 101) if it goes unanswered.

 

To turn Call Waiting Off, dial #43# on your phone handset.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
