Ask a Phone Systems Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi Susanne and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, bear with us; re-confirm that the model number of the Panasonic is KX-TGD213N.
Appreciate the post back and confirmation.
Who is your phone service provider please?
The KX-TGD21?? series of digital cordless phones do not have a built-in answering system. The next series (which looks like the KX-TGD21??), the KX-TGD22?? are the versions which have a built-in answering system.
I know this isn't what you are hoping to hear, and I'm sorry I don't have better news.
I realize that the above information may perhaps be not what was expected. Unfortunately, it is a design limitation; sorry for having to be the bearer of bad news.
There may be a possible / hopeful workaround. Would this be of interest?
If yes, please contact your phone service provider and have VoiceMail feature enabled. VoiceMail serves the same purpose as that of a built-in answering system only that it is with the phone company's servers rather than in/with the KX-TGD213N phone.
