Question about GE 29897GE2 Corded Phone

1 Answer

Memory Full? I tried to record a new message for my answering machine, but when I hold down the "greeting" button to do that it doesn't work. After the phone voice tells me to record my new message after the beep, the phone beeps, and then beeps again instantly and tells me that the memory is full. I don't have any messages on the machine, nor any phone numbers in caller ID. Is there a way to wipe the memory? Am I just missing something? Thanks for any help! SepSep

How do I record a new message please? I have a Uniden N32 phone with base station and three handsets. The recorded message was lost when we had a black-out.

There should be a button that reads "greeting".If there is no button that says "record" or "rec",then just hold down the greeting button and it should prompt you to record.It seems odd though,the digital answering machines usually hold their greeting even when losing power and coming back on.If it currently gives a "computer voice" greeting it should not be a problem.If there is no "computer" greeting,there may be a problem.Good luck.

User manual of GE 29878GE1 Digital Answering Machine

From the Manual: RECORDING THE GREETING Before using your new answerer, you should record a greeting (the announcement callers hear when your answering system answers a call). If you don't record a greeting, callers hear a default greeting which says, "Record message after tone." When recording the greeting you should be about 6 inches from the unit. Eliminate as much background noise as possible. 1. Prepare your greeting. Sample Greeting: Hi, this is (use your name here). I can?t answer the phone right now, so please leave your name, number, and a brief message after the tone, and I?ll get back to you. Thanks. 2.Hold down the GREETING button. After the tone, you have 30 seconds to record your greeting. 3.Release the GREETING button when you finish. The greeting will playback automatically. NOTE: Your recording time should not be less than 2 seconds. Otherwise the unit will return to the default greeting.
