20 Most Recent AT&T 958 Speakerphone (att26835) Questions & Answers


This is a standard phone so I'm assuming you're using this in a home or small office, connected direct to a regular phone line, and that you're using calling services from your phone service provider. 3-way calling works as you describe: you press flash to get dialtone again, call the other party, then press flash again to connect the two so all three of you can talk. The point is that this is 3-way calling, not a forwarding or transfer function. You can't transfer a call to another number this way. Since you initiated the 3-way call, the connection requires you to be there; when you hang up the connection between the other two parties is broken.

Your line may also have call-forwarding, which lets you program a number that calls to your line will reach if you're away (an alternative to using voicemail or an answering machine and needing to check messages). But this doesn't allow you to transfer a current call to another number, only incoming calls.

The only way you can transfer a call is when you have the switching equipment (an office phone system, for example) at your location, and have at least two outside phone lines available. Then the system would allow your phone to disconnect, and still maintain the connection between the other parties. But both of the phone lines would remain tied up until the other parties hung up, and if you only had two lines you'd be unable to receive or make any other calls.

Residential customers with a single phone line don't have any option to transfer calls.

Do you hear tones when you press the buttons to dial?Many phones have the option to dial by pulses instead of tones. Make sure your phone is set to tones.

If you need the remote access code for the answering system, then the original (default) access code is given in the manual on page 50 (page 53 of the PDF) and on 55 (page 58 of the PDF). See the manual online at https://att.vtp-media.com/ecp/documents/product_Product/364/UserManual/5977/SL82118_manual_i10.pdf . Unfortunately, if the remote access code has been changed, the default code will not work. As far as I know there is no way to reset the SL82318 remote access code to the factory default remotely. See page 50 of the manual to reset the phone's access code when you are using the handset. When you use the handset and start to change the code, the current remote access code will be announced first.

Any voice mail system would be accessed using the phone number and codes from your telephone service provider. This information will not correspond to the answering system of the SL82318.

I hope this helps.

Reverse the polarity of the phone wires.

-Some phones are sensitive to this; others do not seem to mind.

I believe you should reverse the red and green.

Check your ground wire where the phone line comes into the junction box outside your house. It is either loose or corroded. It should be clean and clamped to a ground stake or water pipe like for an outdoor hose faucet. Check both ends of the wire. Without it, the phone system's impedance is so high that it will receive the 60 Hz hum from any electrical appliances around the house that are within a few feet of a line on an extension phone, answering machine or even an extension phone outlet wire running through a wall. These make great receiving antennas. good luck.

That is not possible. Deleted means gone for good.

If you delete the greeting you recorded, it should default to the canned response.

Take the back cover off your phone and remove the battery. You will find the IMEI on the label there.
