Product Description

Product Description

40 minutes record time / 3 mailboxes / MessageGuard Memory for power failures / Phone conversation recording / Tapeless operation

Amazon.com

Enjoy all the convenience of dial-in remote access and none of the hassles of hissy, imprecise analog answering machines thanks to AT&T's compact and affordable 1726 digital answering system. It offers three separate voice mailboxes and is compatible with paid services like caller ID (announce, not display) and call screening/intercept.

An extended record time of 40 minutes means you won't have to erase your messages just to have free storage space for new messages, and the device even lets you move messages between mailboxes for convenient file sharing with other household members. A two-digit message counter informs you of how many messages are currently in each mailbox.

I've been using this answering machine for almost two years now. I was originally attracted to it's multiple mailboxes and spoken-aloud caller ID feature. It delivers quite well on those two features, but is otherwise frustrating to use.

All of the unit's features are configured by pressing a single 'setup' button, and all the options are voice menu driven. This seems very convenient, but in reality it takes a good couple of minutes to cycle through all the dozens of options available to find the one you want and then set it properly. The prompts are unclear and the settings cryptic.

The absence of a back-up battery means that I lose my outgoing greeting about once a month on average. I would not recommend this unit if you have regular power outages (even a brief power 'hiccup' will reset the unit).

Probably my biggest issue with this unit is that it doesn't always work well via remote operation (when I call home using a touch tone phone). Even when I'm calling the machine from a quiet room using a regular (not cell) phone, I often find I need to enter my passcode at LEAST twice before it is recognized (and sometimes as many as 3 or 4 times). Also, the other remote operation codes are very unfriendly to enter and remember.

I've had about half a dozen answering machines in my lifetime. Comparatively, I'd say that this unit offers slightly above-average quality, but is also by far the most complex to operate.

This machine is yet another illustration of how quickly technology innovation moves forward (the cynical person would wonder if the vendors were intentionally keeping these machines less capable to sell their ever-green answering services).
This machine is very small and packed with features. The one review here at Amazon.com said that you couldn't see the caller's ID. This is true but the ATT1726 will speak the number for you before you have to answer the phone. Way cool.
Other outstanding features: 1. A priority code lets your important callers signal that they're on the line via a special ring; 2. Set your toll saver not only to 2/4 but also to 4/6 or up to 7 rings; 3. With caller ID, the machine will store the incoming number with the message and even (get this, telemarketing haters!) have an automatic message for blocked ID calls saying they can not be accepted and then just hang up; 4. Have callers select a mailbox for their message using a key press--good for roommates; 5. great remote access controls, multiple outgoing messages, announcement only, memory protection for power failures, listen to messages at fast or slow speeds, customizable options like call screening (on/off) and message alerts (beep sound/nothing)...I could go on but you get the point. I had ATT's last machine (the 1725) for years and this is a stellar upgrade. The only drawback I can think of is that the engineers overloaded the buttons with different functions (prob. to save space) making the interface a bit dodgy--setup can be tricky. Great instructions, though.
This thing is awesome. And J&R sell it for [money]!! The price at Amazon.com [money] can't be beat. Although I just got the machine and don't know yet about service issues and the like, my recommendation is to get rid of those silly answering services and save some bucks.

Verified Purchase
First, thank you to the reviewers who explained how to record

the outgoing message! :)

I bought this to replace a well-loved Phonemate 4200 that had

worked for almost 13 years before getting spotty. Let me

add that I agree with all who have said it: If only we could

still get dual-full-size-cassette analog machines, with

unlimited per-message length and long overall tape length!

I would have bought one if I could have found it, but the

reviews for this machine made it sound like it would do what

we needed.

So far, so good. The set-up was straighforward except for

recording the outgoing message (for which I used the amazon.com

page as a reference). I liked that you can choose a 3-digit

security code, as well as a 3-digit code for people to dial

in if they want to be announced as a "priority caller".

We don't have caller-ID, so I didn't bother turning those

features on.

I tested the machine, and it works as promised with regard to

being a "tollsaver" (fewer rings to answer if there are new

messages).

The sound quality is ok, but not great, but that's ok for

voice-message-recording purposes.

I liked that you can turn it so you either do or do not hear

the outgoing message as your caller hears.

Hangups are not recorded as messages, which is good--but

if your caller hangs up during the outgoing message, the outgoing

message does finish playing to completion.

After having my faithful dual-cassette answering machine finally expire after more than a decade of use, I'm thrust into the painful position of being forced to choose one of these "digital" models. I can't seem to find any models that anyone really recommmends, it seems this new generation of answering machines tends towards mediocre sound quality *and* short lifespan. But I digress, so I'll comment on my limited experience with the AT&T 1726, which I've only set up tonight.
First, the documentation is not even sufficient to explain fully how to record the greeting. As another reviewer mentioned, after selecting the greeting one wishes to record, you have to sit and wait about 15-20 seconds before the unit will go into a state that allows you to record. The manual does not mention this waiting period at all, it implies you can record immediately. This model has been out quite a while, plenty of time for AT&T to have updated/corrected the documentation. Thanks to reviewer T B Curtz, without the info provided in his review, I'd still be fumbling around trying to get this unit to record the greeting. I'm good at following instructions, and technically-minded (engineer), so I'm not accustomed to being baffled by a simple piece of consumer equipment.
The sound quality of the recorded outgoing message is poor. It sounds as if it was recorded underwater, with uneven volume, and cuts off with a burst of static. I've only listened to one incoming message, which sounded better than the outgoing recording, but still had a muffled, filtered quality.
When replaying a message, you can skip back to the beginning of the message, but there does not appear to be a "partial skip" in case you want to just listen to the previous 5-10 seconds of a message.
