Answer phone.

For some unknown reason TT have put an answer phone service on my phone . 4 rings and it kicks in.

Well my phone is upstairs and I cant run up 3 flights of stairs to get to it before the answer phone kicks in .Its in Turkish Mrs Answer phone lady and its costing people money as soon as she kicks in .No one knows what to say to her and I for one dont know the number to retrieve messages.

I didnt ask for this service is there any way I can turn it off myself or should I contact Turk Telecom?????Thanks
Hugs Maggie xxx

Re: Answer phone.

Normally the settings for the answerphone are in the phone menu itself - if you have an instruction book for the phone you should be able to disable it.

Re: Answer phone.

That's scandalous if TT have done that. I just phoned my landline and no answer phone but interestingly after 4 rings it does pause for a couple of seconds before starting again.

Re: Answer phone.

I had the same problem last year. If you dial hash22hash, it should get rid of it. That is unless they have changed the system again!

Re: Answer phone.

If that didn't work then give them a call and they will give you the new code to remove it! It is really annoying, we missed loads of calls!

Re: Answer phone.

We had the same problem and couldn't sort it for some reason - got a new phone when we went back to the UK so that we have an English manual.

Maggie you cracked me up with that phone.

Never have I seen a more compelling reason to buy a new one. But then I'm only a man and what would I know about style.
