On your main unit, you have the "cid" button and then three buttons next to this, above the numerals. Those three, in order, are "redial" "menu" and "record". The record button is purely for recording a voice memo for another member of the household. Press "menu", use arrows (bottom right of unit) to go down to "answer setup" and this gives you the option to record your greeting. The prompts will then tell you the rest.

Which specific Uniden DECT 6.0 phone do you have? There are a number of them. Uniden has the manuals available here: http://www.uniden.com/bin/venda?ex=co_disp-view&bsref=uniden&scat=dectphones_mnl . Phones are listed in alphabetical and numerical order.
If the answering system is off, turn it on before proceeding to the following steps.
If you are at home, there are usually two methods to access the answering system. Some Uniden phones let you set the outgoing message from the base or the handset. Others will only let you set the message from the handset. (Calling in remotely is more complicated.)
To access the answering system menu from a handset, on some models, push the Mute/Messages button. Then let your current message play or press 5 to stop the recorded announcement. Then either use the up/down arrows to select Record New Greeting (or the number that matches the sub-menu item). It's number 8 on the DECT1480. Then wait for the prompt (tone or "Record Greeting") and then speak into the handset clearly. Press 8 to stop recording and press End to save the message. Press 6 to select the outgoing greeting if a default greeting is available.
On other Uniden DECT phones, press Menu and go to Ans Setup. Then choose the line for the greeting (if it's a multi-line phone) and then select Record Greeting. Press Start, wait for the prompt and then press Stop when done. Press Stop again to save the message. If there is an optional pre-recorded greeting, use the Greeting Option submenu to select the greeting to play. (This applies to the DECT4086.)
From the base, you'll do something similar. However, you should stay about 9" from the microphone while recording. Messages can be between 30 seconds and 3 minutes 30 seconds for most systems.
I hope this helps.

Since you declined to specify the model of your Uniden DECT 6.0 system, select it from the list beginning at
http://www.uniden.com/owners-manuals/dect-phones/scat/dectphones_mnl/ to download a copy of the manual.
For the DECT2180, press Mesage/Mute on any handset to access the answering system. Wait for the announcements to be finished or press 5 to skip. Then press 8. Wait for the message "record greeting" then begin speaking. Press 8 to stop recording. The system will play back the greeting. Press End to save the greeting and exit the system.
For the DECT2080, press and hold Greet on the base. When you hear "record greeting", start speaking your message. Press Greet again or the play/stop button to stop recording your message. Press Greet again to play back the current outgoing message.
There should be a button that reads "greeting".If there is no button that says "record" or "rec",then just hold down the greeting button and it should prompt you to record.It seems odd though,the digital answering machines usually hold their greeting even when losing power and coming back on.If it currently gives a "computer voice" greeting it should not be a problem.If there is no "computer" greeting,there may be a problem.Good luck.
