Question about RCA 25414RE3 Corded Phone

2 Answers

Phone is not recording all messages left

I have the additional cordless handset H5400 that is compatible with this phone.The corded phone will record most incoming calls but not all. I don't know if this is due to a cell phone being used by the caller that is leaving the message. I also wonder if the cordless handset might be creating the problem. Does anyone else have this problem?

Re: phone is not recording all messages left

The 25414RE3 isn't the model with the answering machine. The one that has the answering machine is the 25415RE3.

As for the problem, does the answering machine part of the unit actually pick up the line? Does it announce your pre-recorded message? Does it just not record the caller's response?

Want to change answering machine message

Good afternoon Ed.

You can find the complete manual for this system here:
If you go to page 43 of the manual (page 47 of the .PDF file), it has instructions for recording your greeting. It has additional icons and such, but the short summary is:
  1. With the handset down, press [Menu/Select]
  2. Arrow up or down to highlight [Answering Sys]. then push [Menu/Select]
  3. Press [Menu/Select] to select [Announcement]
  4. Arrow keys to highlight [Record annc]. then press [Menu/Select]
  5. System will announce 'Record at the tone, press [5] when you are done.
  6. After the tone, speak toward the handset microphone.
  7. When Done, press [5]. System will play your message back to you and returns to previous menu, or press [Off/Cancel] to exit without saving recording.
Hoping that helps, and Happy Holidays.

I have a corded uniden DECT 6.0--with handsets--how do I set it to record incoming messages? It only announces my message, but callers can not leave a message-

Your phone is in "Announce" mode and you want to switch it to "Answer" mode. Since you didn't specify the model of your Uniden DECT 6.0 system I can only suggest you select it from the list beginning here to download a copy of the manual.

HI! How do I change the message on my phone?

You can record your own greeting message (max 2 mins & 30 secs). If you don't record a greeting mesage, a pre-recorded greeting message is used & asks the caller to leave a message. (Make sure your phone has the correct date, time, year, etc.)

To record a message:

1. Menu (OK) the "Answering Device" (OK), the "Record Greeting" (OK)

2. Then after the handset beeps, speak clearly about 20 cm (8 in) away from the mike.

3. To stop recording, press (OK)

4. (Off)

I have a model dect2035 .88012717..onthe handset it is reading hand set is out of range /searching . the phone is 2 weeks old thanks

1. Press message/MUTE (bottom of handset). The system announces the number of new and old messages, then it starts to play the messages unless it has no messages.

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

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

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

Couple different ways -
1- get a recording device from Radio Shack that plugs into the handset to record calls and playback to record.
2. If you have a computer record it through your windows operating system
3. use your cell phone and record it

Then you can download it as a recorded file into anything you desire.

You did record a message on the answerer, didn't you? Mine displayed that until I recorded the outgoing message for the answerer. You do not need any service from your phone provider. The answerer in the base unit simply records the caller's message when you don't answer after a set number of rings. The manual tells you how to name the handset, which is a nice feature if you don't wish to use "unit 1, unit 2, etc".
