AT&T 5840 remote access code not working
I have an AT&T 5840 cordless phone system. I'm trying to access my messages remotely through my (not a smart) cell phone. I've read the manual and it seems straight forward enough. When the machine answers enter the 2 digit remote access code - I've changed it from the default 50 ('cuz that wasn't working). Tried entering the code both during the outgoing message and after it ends.
In theory after entry of the remote access code the machine is supposed to issue a beep and then accept remote commands, i.e. play messages etc. - no beep to response to remote commands from the manual. Any help would be appreciated - thanks
