I have the uniden dect 6.0 3 handset. I lost my manuel and do not know how to record my answer message


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.

(recording a new greeting during a remote call can be done but consult the manual for details.)

How to change greeting for a 5.8 digital uniden phone


Since you declined to specify the model of your Uniden system, I can only direct you to select it from the list beginning here.

Lost my pin to access messages. The phone model is a Panasonic cordless Model TGA542AL.


Which model of Uniden phone do you have? Do you remember the PIN that you have programmed into the phone? (If the PIN is not set, you can't access the answering system remotely. The Uniden phones that I know don't have a default PIN.) 

For the DCT648, to access the messages remotely, dial your phone number and wait for the system to answer. Press 0 followed by your 2 digit PIN (within 2 seconds of pressing zero) while the greeting is playing. To play back all of the messages, press 0 2. If the unit is off, then you need to press 0 followed by your PIN (within 2 seconds) after 10 rings and the beep. Press 0 6 to turn on the unit. 

Other Uniden phones use a 4 digit PIN. On the DECT1080, when the greeting plays, press * followed by the PIN. Then press 01 to play back the messages. 

Uniden phone manuals are available at the product page (start at http://www.uniden.com and search for your phone) or from the Support page ( http://www.uniden.com/scat/cordlessphones_mnl ) . On the support page, you will need to use the drop down menu to change the type of phone (if you have a DECT phone) and then search through the pages. The manuals are listed in numerical and alphabetical order. One manual will cover several phones if the phone supports multiple handsets. So ignore the number after the dash if you can't find your exact manual. 

If you add a comment with your phone's model number, I'll be glad to check the specifics for accessing the answering system for you. 

I hope this helps.
