Most VTech landline phones come equipped with several features, including an intercom, voicemail, directory, speakerphone and caller ID. The units have many customizable settings as well, such as the ringtone, ringer volume, key tone, language, time and date. If your VTech phone model comes equipped with voicemail, the phone's time and date will automatically set themselves. Otherwise, they need to be manually set.
