Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

The auto answer mode being on is really all you need for it to receive automatically.

If you want to receive manually, just wait for it to ring and press the OK or Start (black) button to begin the process.

Let me know if that works for you.
