Your system is set to "Announce" instead of "Answer". Since you neglected to specify the model of your VTech answering system I can only suggest you enter it into the search box here to download a copy of the manual to learn how to switch the mode.

Answering system doesn't work.


Your system is set to "Announce" mode, where it plays an announcement but does not record a message. You want "Answer" mode, where the system allows the caller to leave a message.

Since you didn't give the model of your VTech system, I can't tell you how to switch modes. Enter the model into the search box at http://www.vtechphones.com/support/general/manuals to download a copy of the manual.

HI! How do I change the message on my phone?


You can record your own greeting message (max 2 mins & 30 secs). If you don't record a greeting mesage, a pre-recorded greeting message is used & asks the caller to leave a message. (Make sure your phone has the correct date, time, year, etc.)

To record a message:

1. Menu (OK) the "Answering Device" (OK), the "Record Greeting" (OK)

2. Then after the handset beeps, speak clearly about 20 cm (8 in) away from the mike.

3. To stop recording, press (OK)

4. (Off)

How do I program the machine to record messages? My message plays, but there is no record of my recording when I leave a message?


You have announce set to on, where callers can hear your message but cannot leave one of their own.

The instructions for changing this are on page 28 of the manual at

The pre recorded message on the answering machine has been lost.


I read thru the manual. There is nothing bout recovery of factory messages. If you recorded your own, try deleting it. Or unplug the base from power and try a reset. This is from the manual. At the end, I gave you a link to the manual!

Using a pre-recorded greeting

If you erase or do not record your own
greeting message, the unit plays a prerecorded
greeting message for callers
and asks them to leave messages. If the

Recording a message


You need to record the OGM message not the memo. Memo is used for just that. You can leave a memo for your other half, child, etc.

The OGM is what callers here when getting your answering machine.
