I'm no expert, but I have had a lot of trial and error experience with this set. Is your Auto Attendant on? This feature is designed to be like an operator for multi mailboxes. If it is, turn Auto Attendant off and record the greeting for mailbox 1. Hope this helps!

I've lost my manual and can't remember how to change and record a new the greeting. Thanks for your help. Fran


At the base unit press the MEMO button, then press one of the mailbox buttons(MAILBOX 1, MAILBOX 2, or MAILBOX 3) begin recording into the MIC at a adistance of 8 inches after the long beep. Press the MEMO button to end and save the recording. If a caller leaves a message without choosing a mailbox, the message will be recorded in mailbox 1. Here is a link to download the manual.

Can i have a prerecorded no answer message rather than record one if so how do you do it


Sort of. The problem is once you record one, you have to delete and reinstall the mailbox to make it work and the canned message is horrible because it has no options. It's also long-winded with options that nobody would ever use.

Please, just record a short greeting and let it play.

If you want to delete it, the mailbox is deleted from the System owner's mailbox (999). It's part of mailbox administration and one option will be to delete the mailbox.

I need to change the name that is said when someone dials an extension. For example, if I call the main number then dial an extension, I hear "Transfering you to 'blah blah'". I want to change...


The recording of the name you hear announced during the transfer is the recording that the particular mailbox owner has recorded. If that mailbox owner has not recorded a name then you will hear a system prompt of the extension number. Access that mailbox as the owner and you can record a new name for the mailbox. This is easiest if done from that mailbox owners phone, you will need the password for the mailbox if password protection is enabled. Once in the mailbox it will play any new messages then follow the prompts to get to user options.

Need setup help for ep5962


first set day and time... menu, mailboxes, set day/time, scroll to day, set, select, ok... then scroll to current time, set, dial pad four digits, 2 for am or 7 for pm, select save. now power on line 1 or 2 or both. phone is preprogrammed with 'hello, please leave a message after the tone.' to record your own use menu, mailboxes, select setup 1 or 2, then review/chng oga, then record new oga, then ok. record when screen changes, choose stop when you're done. shortcut: press and hold record, press and release mailbox line x, release when finished. you only record one line at a time, so you can have different messages on each line. even if it's the same, you must record each line. since you can only record one message the shortcut would be useful for an 'out to lunch, be back about 1-30' sort of message. then re-record a standard message when you get back from lunch. 'course, you really don't need an 'out to lunch' message, since people are accustomed to answering machines at any time of day. all the caller needs to know is that 'i can't get to the phone right now.' and they appreciate it when you keep it short.

AT&T 1855 phone with digital answering system


If Announce Only is selected, no messages will be recorded.

When Announce Select is set to "A" and the system answers a call, the caller hears the announcement you recorded, followed by a beep. After the beep, the system begins recording your caller’s message up to three minutes long.
