Why does my phone ask callers to dial area code and press # and enter a pin number

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, have you double-checked the code? And what is the exact make and model of your machine?

What code? KX-TGE233

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

For a couple weeks at least and I don't know what to do

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

Thats about it
