Before using this answering system, you
should record the announcement (up to
one minute long) that callers will hear
when the system answers a call. If you
choose not to record an announcement,
the system answers with a prerecorded
announcement: “Hello. Please leave a
message after the tone.”
1 Press and hold "ANNC/SKIP" . The system
beeps. Speak toward the microphone
normally, from about nine inches away.
While you are recording, the Message
Window displays —.
2 To stop recording, release "ANNC/SKIP".
The system automatically plays back
your announcement.
To review your announcement, press
and release "ANNC/SKIP".

How do i change the message on my answering machine


Hold the announcement key down. If the old message is there it will read it out loud to you. If you wish to change it, just hold the announcement key and speak over the old message. Make sure you keep holding the announcement key as you record your new message. When you have finished recording, release the key. If you wish to hear your message push the announcement key again. Do not hold it down this time. If you are not satisfied with the new message, repeat the method by holding down the announcement key again and recording your message. Your old message will disappear once you have recorded your new one.
