Don't miss important calls just because you happen to be away from the phone. The AT&T 1760 records your incoming messages along with caller-ID information and the time and date. Plus, you get the convenience and reliability of all-digital tapeless technology.

Setting up the 1760 was easier than any other caller ID/tapeless answering device (TAD) we've reviewed. We just plugged in the AC adapter and the phone cord, pressed the Options buttons, and followed the on-screen menus. The clock was easy to set and the menus are so straightforward that we set up the home and local area codes for caller ID and got the TAD features working in less than five minutes.

The menus inform you, for example, that you can set the TAD to answer on one to seven rings or on two different toll-saver ringing options. We had to consult the manual only once, to verify that we had correctly reset the factory-prerecorded outgoing message.

In our tests, removing the AC power stopped the clock but did not erase our messages even after several hours; AT&T's Message Guard protects messages from power failures. The sound quality of our recorded messages was good but not perfect. All messages were clear but had "artifacts," apparently from data compression, just as we would expect for a TAD in this class. The 1760 can record up to 45 calls using data compression techniques.

If you want a simple answering device with caller ID/call waiting that offers the convenience of a tapeless design and easy setup, then we highly recommend the AT&T 1760.

Pros:

  • Easy menu-driven setup
  • Records up to 45 calls
  • 99-call history in caller ID

Cons:

  • Four-minute recording limit per message

Very easy to set up.
Richard Engelhardt
The machine does not offer what the editorial review says it does in terms of number of messages and length of total messages.

The amazon review of this product is dead on. Sound is decent, and it's very easy to set up. The only complaint I have is that the LCD isn't backlit, so it's hard to read in low lighting conditions.

I had an answering machine for years and decided to update to a newer model and bought this one because it was closest to the one Consumer Reports recommended - big mistake! Three months later it's broken and going thru AT&T's help line was a big pain. After going thru a bunch of prompts, a tape recording told me to "replace the batteries and the tape." This unit has neither one.

It has very good sound, easy to understand instructions, works as expected except I have hooked it to a two line telephone and can only use one line while hooked up through this answereing machine.

I suffered with this machine for 30 days before returning it to the store. When you read the package it sounds like a great machine with many useful features. And it would be, if the features worked. The whole machine was unreliable - messages got cut off, sound quality was mixed, I had difficulty reading the display, and the controls were a bit too difficult to use.
I switched to a Casio and am much happier. That's after having owned AT&T answering machines for over 10 years. Please, learn from my mistake.

I bought this answering machine thinking this would be a low-cost, high-quality alternative to voice mail. You get what you pay for with this turkey. Be careful how you scroll through your call history, for you might find your voice messages inaccessible as a result. See an item in your call history in the first scroll through, then...poof...gone without a trace.

Setup and installation was very easy. Voice quality was fair; I had expected better. The real problems happened when I had the machine connected to my phone line. The clock would reset to midnight every 8-10 minutes and record an incoming call (the Call ID list, not a message). AT&T tech support suggested a conflict with the local phone company, and that I should take it up with them. I chose not to get involved in this dispute and returned the unit. (Amazon was great about taking it back).

I was scared to order this answering machine because of the other reviews. After using the machine for a couple of weeks, I understand the problems, but do not find them to be of much concern. This machine is not as intuitive as some AT&T products I've used before, but unless you do something wrong, it is very dependable. I would echo the complaint that the LCD is not backlit, and as I said it is less than intuitive, but overall, it's a great deal.
