    year old daughter's) from my Uniden 900 MHz 378 series telephone
    answering machine. Any possibible way of getting those messages back?

    I had a GE digital answering machine at one time that did not delete the
    messages until new ones came in. Even though you pressed the erase or
    delete button, you could still play the old messages until a new one
    came in and permanently deleted the old messages.

    You have probably already tried pressing play again, but I thought I'd
    throw it out there...

    Hi,

    Does it store it in a battery-backed up RAM? Or flash?

    Then it probably is still there. Erasing a message is probably the
    same as erasing a file on a disk, you just remove the entry in the
    content table.

    Do NOT record anything of you ever want those messages back.

    You will need somebody who knows electronics (like me), can get the
    flash, read it in an epromprogrammer and figure out the data. Probably
    in a 8-bit format.

    It is also possible that is uses an analog ISD or other soundchip.
    They are difficult to crack as they can have internal datamanagement.

    If it is possible depends on what is inside this machine.

    Hi,

    I also have a GE digital answering machine with deleted messages from my deceased father which I'd very much like to recover. I don't know anything about electronics but would it be possible for me to send you the machine and you could see if anything can be done.

    Thanks for your time.
