Hi and welcome to the site, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the phone system.

Additionally, who is your phone service provider please?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Model # KXTGC220 and my phone company is Cox
Expert:  Louie replied 10 months ago.

Appreciate the additionalinformation.

Please confirm; are you using Cox's VoiceMail service or the Panasonic's built-in answering machine?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I don't use voicemail just the answering machine
Expert:  Louie replied 10 months ago.

I understand.

Let's try a test; press star ( * ) and the numbers 2- 9- 8


call your 10-digit home phone number


check if there are any messages.

If yes, listen and delete (all) when heard.
