How to Set Up My VTech Telephone & Get Voice Mail on It

By Ben David

VTech manufacturers a large line of cordless phone systems that have a number of different features and functions depending on the model type. Some VTech phones come with multiple handsets and others have Bluetooth-compatibility. Each VTech phone system has its own specific features; however, they are all set up and get voice mail in the same manner. The process of setting up your VTech phone and getting voice mail on it is fairly straightforward.

Phone Setup

Step 1

Slide the battery into the battery compartment, aligning the metal contacts on the battery with the metal contacts inside the handset.

Step 2

Plug the power cable into the “Power" port on the back of the phone base, then plug the other end of the cable into the wall outlet.

Step 3

Place the handset on the charger bay on the base of the phone. The “Battery Charge” indicator light will begin blinking if the phone battery is not fully charged. The indicator light will glow solid once the battery has fully charged.

Get Voice Mail

Step 1

Dial 98 on the VTech handset keypad, then wait for the voice mail prompt to enter your pass code.

Step 2

Enter the pass code for your voice mail. The default pass code is customarily 0000 for a brand-new phone system.

Step 3

Press option “#1” to listen to any new voice mail in the system.
