    This is a fantastic machine to take your messages. It is very difficult to find an answering machine that is not part of a phone system and is a separate unit. We prefer a separate unit to deal with incoming calls. It is very easy to see the number of new calls and handle them accordingly. In fact, I purchased the Att answering machine for my 80 year old mother and she has no problem retrieving her calls even though she is not technically inclined. I hope that Att never stops making this answering machine. I have referred others to Staples for this machine.

    This answering system cannot properly handle "hang-ups" from "robo-calls". The system locks up and has to be unplugged from its power source to be reset. It the loses the current date/time. The "robo-call" messages have to be quickly skipped or the system will once again hang. "Robo-call" messages cannot be deleted unless ALL messages are deleted at once. I intend to replace this machine with a non-AT&T brand.

    Comments about AT&T 1740 Digital Answering Machine with Time/Day Stamp:

    Just what we needed after our less than two year old Panasonic KX-TS4300 phone systems built-in answering machine we purchased through Staples stopped working. The $20. answering machine was alot cheaper than having to go out and purchase another 3-phone system.

    Comments about AT&T 1740 Digital Answering Machine with Time/Day Stamp:

    I am above average to figure directions out.... These directions made no sense at all and I suspect that they delivered a product with out testing it out. There is no way to alter the answering call, unless you wanted to use their canned speech. Bad choice !!

    Comments about AT&T 1740 Digital Answering Machine with Time/Day Stamp:

    The AT&T 1740 Digital Answering Machine with Time/Day Stamp by VTech is such a step up from our previous answering machine. It is easy to connect, and is much smaller than most. The buttons are few and easy to use. I highly recommend this product because it is so practical. When there is a message the button is bright green, and the number of messages are shown. When accessing them, the machine gives the time, day and even date, if the machine has not been used for several days. It is really helpful to know when someone tried to reach you. It is easy to listen to the messages, and to delete them one by one if you wish. This is a really great product!
