    We are trying to record our voices so we can recieve messages. The generic voice keeps playing and the message we attempt to leave does not get recorded on the answering machine.

I had the same problem all you have to do is go to menu until you hear message annoucments. Then it says announcments on or off select off with change button. Then press TIME/ SET. That will fix it.
