Dropped and voice recording doesn't work

I dropped my phone and now the voice recording doesn't work. It didn't fall very far, maybe about 1 ft, and all the other functions seem to be working fine, but voice recordings come out as the initial beep and then silence afterward. Is there any way to fix this? Help is much appreciated.

Re: dropped and voice recording doesn't work

You need to replace the flex cable in the screen section of the phone...You need to get your phone to a good repair shop to get this done. It's a very tedious job. Must be only done by someone who knows what they are doing.The controls for the voice recording is controlled by one of the side buttons on this flex cable. Sam !

I have a Samsung T406 cell phone. How do I record a new greeting message?

That usually has to do with the cell phone provider's voice mail, not the cell phone.
Call your voice mail. Instead of listening to messages listen to all the menus.
You'll want something like "setup" "record new outgoing message" or things like that. Usually you can listen and choose to save or do a new recording. You might need to press star (*) or pound (#) buttons to save or cancel the recordings - or maybe numbers 1 or 2.

Does not depend on the phone, is the phone company that provides voice message service.

I don't know how to set up voice message

If you mean setting up voice mail out-going message, then see below (for AT&T cell service). The phone will dial the voice mail center for you after you set it. Then it will check the number of messages on the system. Press Menu > Messaging > Settings. Then select Voice Mail and enter the phone number for the call center. Then press the AT&T button to exit.

To listen to the messages, press and hold 1 or press Menu > Messaging > Voice Mail. Then the number set above will be dialed.

To set up the voice mail box, start as you would for listening to the messages above. Note: you must use your wireless phone and be inside the AT&T coverage area.

To set up your voicemail box:

1. Follow the prompts to create and enter a 4- to 15-digit voicemail password.
2. Record your name and personal greeting, then press the # key
3. After completing the setup process, press * to return to the Main menu.

See for more information.

For another provider, see their documentation.

To create a memo for yourself, press Menu > Tools > Voice Memo (or if using the advanced menu, Menu > My Stuff > Tools > Voice Memo). Then press Options > New (or Create New, if you have created one before). Press Re-rec to record and pause to momentarily stop recording. Press the AT&T button to stop recording. Press Play to play back a memo and the AT&T button to stop play-back.

I hope this helps.

My Razr will only accept calls, voice dial and voice record keep looping.

Your phone is water damaged. It may help to let it dry out further, but most likely it is beyond help. You could sell it for parts on eBay. People will buy water damaged phones on there too.
