    Comments about AT&T® 1740 Digital Answering System:

    This gift to an 80+ senior is easy to hear and use after set-up. Except returning to defaults by accident was also easy. After a little practice seems like a very good choice.

      Comments about AT&T® 1740 Digital Answering System:

      There are not that many "stand alone" answering machines anymore. Why??? This one is hard to fully hear the voice, when it gives out the incoming phone number, and it says it so fast. Also it pauses before giving the number verbally.

      I brought it back.

        Comments about AT&T® 1740 Digital Answering System:

        I bought this to replace an old tape answering machine that finally died. I screen all calls, so I used to have the answering machine pick up on the second ring, as the old machine allowed me to set the number of rings before the machine answered at 2, 3, 4, or 5. I don't want anyone to wait more than two rings max before the machine picks up. This thing defaults to 4 rings, and it is not user configurable. A huge negative.

        The sound quality is horrible. My own voice on the message I recorded sounds nothing like me, and the voices of people that leave messages is garbled. I'm disappointed in the machine.

              I had to remove the telephone line preinstalled in the 1740 and replace it with an existing floor mounted telephone line.

              This is the only way I could get it to work when I tested it by calling the 1740 with my cell phone.

              Works just fine for my needs and hard to beat the price.

                    Comments about AT&T® 1740 Digital Answering System:

                    After 16 years of faithful service, my AT&T answering machine indicated that it needed replacing. I wanted a similar machine: one that was simple, easy to use, and would work well with my existing telephones. My local store was most helpful and recommended this one. So far it has proved to be a good choice. Set up went well due to the clear instructions in the manual and voice prompts from the machine itself. While this machine has more options than my previous machine, it allows me the choice to use the features that I want. Its economical price made it a good buy.
