I have the uniden dect 6.0 3 handset. I lost my manuel and do not know how to record my answer message


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.

How record message


With the phone in standby mode, press and hold the [greeting] key. You will hear the announcement "Record greeting" and a confirmation tone. "--" flashes on the message counter.
Start record your message. You have thirty seconds, and the message counter counts down.
When finished, press [greeting]. You'll hear a confirmation tone, and then your greeting plays back.

The above is from the "Recording a personal outgoing message" section of the manual (page 36 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one here.

I do not have a manual for directions on recording a personal message


For most of the Uniden DECT phones, you set up the outgoing message from the handset. Make sure the answering system is on. For the DECT1480, press Messages/Mute on the handset when the handset is in standby to enter the answering system menu. Then press 5 (or wait until the current message ends). Then press 8 (record new message). Wait for the prompt and then speak your message. When finished, press 8 again. Then listen to the play-back of your message. Press End to save and exit the menu. Alternatively you can scroll through the list of commands and press Menu/Select to enter the sub menu or command.

There are several models of Uniden DECT 6.0 phones. If you have a different phone, you should check your manual. The entire list of Uniden phone manuals is available here: http://www.uniden.com/scat/cordlessphones_mnl . Scroll down to your product and click on the version in your language.

I hope this helps.

I have purchased the Uniden 6.0 and would like to install my voice mail but I am directed to the DETAILED OWNER'S MANUAL which is not in the box. Is it possible for you to download the information for me?...


There are a number of Uniden DECT 6.0 phones. The user's manuals are available from the list here: http://www.uniden.com/index/manuals_results.cfm?cat=59 . Select your model and language for the appropriate PDF.

For the Uniden phone I know, you can set up the answering machine from a handset or the base unit. First turn on the answering system. On the base, press Ans On/Off. From the handset, press either the Phonebook or Redial buttons and use the menu to choose AM Operation. Then select Menu/OK. (Then find Answer On/Off choose On or Off and press Menu/OK to save.)

To set the Outgoing Message, use the handset as above but select Record OGM. (Alternatively, you can delete or hear your outgoing message.) To record the message press Menu/OK and wait for the beep before starting your message.

Next you can set the length of the message recording for incoming calls (1-4 minutes or Announce Only (no messages recorded). Choose Msg. Length from the menus.

I hope this helps.
