Which Uniden phone do you have? for some models, you access the Answering System menu from the base; on others, you need to be holding the handset. The generic steps are below.
On the appropriate part of the unit, make sure that the phone system is in standby (no active calls on any handset). Then press Menu. Use the arrow keys to find the line for Answering System. Press OK. Navigate to a line about Greeting and press OK. You should see (and select a line) for Recording message. You'll be prompted to ensure that you want to record a new message. If you are using the handset, hold the unit about 6" away from your head. After confirming that you wish to record a new message, speak your new message clearly. When you are done, press End. The unit will cut off the recording if your message was too long. Make sure to save the message. Then go back up in the Menu system and look for a line for "Play back Greeting". If the message isn't clear, start over.
I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number of the phone for specifics for your manual. Some DECT phone manuals are available here: http://www.uniden.com.au/australia/cs_operating_manuals_phones.asp .
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.

Hi - took me ages to work out without the manual, but when you're in the answerphone menu (described above), press 9 (record OGM) then either 1 or 2 (1 for OGM 1 and 2 for OGM2), speak your message, then press 5 (stop), the message will automatically replay, then you're sorted
