How Do I Get My Answering Machine Back To English?

I know, read the manual. I would, but the kid used it for a sketch pad, & it got thrown out. Same kid somehow switched the machine from English to Spanish... anyone have a GE 5.8ghz Digital Messaging System, with the cordless phone, that can help me? I figured out how to reset the date & time, & have learned the days of the week in Spanish now. Not interested in learning more Spanish at this time, just would like to hear in English what time my Mom called to whine about her co workers.

& yes, I googled... apparently it's not common. & of course I can't find an online manual that says anything about languages, other than they have that capability

How do u switch it from spanish to english?

Press and hold the STOP/SET button for two seconds, then release to access the set-up menu.

The answering machine announces, For English, press NEXT, press SET to continue (in English). Para espanol, oprima PREVIO, oprima PROGRAMAR para continuar (in Spanish).

Press NEXT, answerer enters English voice menu mode. If PREVIOUS is pressed, answerer enters Spanish voice menu mode. If SET is pressed, answerer remains in the current language mode. In any case, the answerer enters to the TIME/DAY menu.
