Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

Hi Robert, are you wanting to reprogram the Voicemail speed dial button?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
No. I used my home phone number to access my voice mail. Our phone numbers now have to include area code for all calls. I have attempted to make this change and find no instructions on how to make this change
Expert:  Nathan replied 3 months ago.

I'm sorry, I'm not quite clear on that, because it still sounds to me like you are wanting to access the voicemail.

There is a feature in the panasonic whereby it notifies you new messages, and then can automatically dial in to the voicemail to listen to them. That is what you want to change, correct?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
No. When you go to access voice mail a number appears on the screen which automatically dials then you need to input code. The access number now requires an area code
Expert:  Nathan replied 3 months ago.

yes that is what I am referring to as well, we're just calling it different things.

Take your handset, key in Menu#331

press CLEAR until all digits are erased

Save

Off

Then repeat: Menu#331,

key in the NEW access number (including area code), then you can actually even put in a few pauses and enter your pin (ie: 1234) and it will save that too

Save

Off

Didn't work! erase code and not able to save. Code does not clear
Expert:  Nathan replied 3 months ago.

You have to press the CLEAR button below the screen, then you can press Save, then Exit.

Then go back in and key in the new number.
Alternately, you can press EDIT, then delete the individual digits, and key in the new one, then Save, then Exit
