How do I record my voice mail greeting in my personal cell phone


You didn't say what type & kind of phone you have (iphone or android) or phone service you have (they all do them slightly different). If you dial your own phone number into your cell phone, that should access your voice mail. I have a Sprint Android, so
  1. Press 3 for Personal Options
  2. Press 2 for Greetings
  3. Press 1 to Change Greeting
  4. Press 1 to Record personal greeting or press 2 to select the standard greeting
  5. Press # to End Recording
  6. Press 1 to Confirm Greeting
Change your Sprint personal voicemail greeting

How do i set the answering system on a uniden 1580-3 phone, mine is just background noise on the answering machine when someone calls in to leave a message


Here is the manual for your phone. You can download the manual and the instructions for setting up your answering machine are on page 43:

http://www.uniden.com/pdf/DECT1580-3om.pdf

Setting Up the Answering System
You can set up your answering system's features from the handset. Only one handset at a time can access the answering system menus.

Note: If you have multiple bases, select the base with answering system you want to access (see page 15).

Recording a Personal Greeting
Your answering system comes with a pre-recorded outgoing message or greeting that plays when you receive a call: "Hello, no one is available to take your call. Please leave a message after the tone." You can record your own personal outgoing greeting. Your recorded greeting must be between two seconds and thirty seconds long.

Press /mute. The system announces the number of new and old messages, then starts to play the messages unless it has no messages.

Press 5 to stop the announcements or message playback. You will hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode.

Press 8 to start the recording. The system announces, "Record greeting." Begin recording after the announcement.

When you finish recording, press 8 again or press 5. You will hear a confirmation tone, and your recorded greeting plays back for you.

Selecting a Greeting

Once you have recorded a personal greeting, the phone automatically switches to your personal greeting. You can
also switch back and forth between the pre-recorded greeting and your own greeting at any time.

Press /mute. The system announces the number of new and old messages, then starts to play the messages unless it has no messages.

Press 5 to stop the announcements or message playback. You will hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode.

Press 6. The system plays the current greeting.

the voice guidance starts.
3 Follow the voice guidance as

We can't set the voicemail greeting to our own message


this way will take awhile, but this is the only way i know how to record a personal greetong so far:

  • on page 10 of the manual, it tells you to press and hold the 1/E key.

  • This will automatically connect you to your voice mail.

  • after listening to your messages or no messages, the robot lady says, "main menu."

  • after hearing this, pay close attention because she asks if you would like to be taken to "personal options" (press 4)

  • she will then ask if you would like to be taken to "greetings or recorded name" (press 3)

  • she will then ask if you want "to change [your] personal greeting" (press 1)

  • then she asks 3 options of what you can do (ie her telling people your number, then telling them to leave messages; you saying your name, then her telling people to leave messages; or what you asked about: recording your own greeting).

  • To record your "personal greeting," press 3

  • then she gives you directions for this, etc.

hope this helps and that it is the same for your phone... i have a propel A767... it took me a long time to figure this out, so you are not alone :D
