Answering machine with multiple OGM help

I need to get an phone/answering machine for my small business and here is my problem.  It needs to have around 30 minutes or longer of incoming message space and I need to have the ability to easily change the outgoing message on a regular basis.  My current machine is on its way out and it is tape based, so I can record 2 outgoing messages on one tape, hit a button and switch my message instantly.  Then I can swap out the tape and have 2 new messages at my fingertips.  With these new digital machines it seems you can only record 1 OGM at a time and I cannot be re-recording my messages all the time (out to lunch, in but can't get to the phone, closed until Monday etc.)  Anyone have any ideas how to solve this?  It can be a corded or cordless phone or even no phone at all just as long as it meets those 2 needs.  Thanks

Those machines record the message on a chip. The chip may be bad.

I need to delete the message on my panasonic answering machine KX-T7730

The KX-T7730 isn't an answering machine. You need to refer to the documentation for whatever answering/voicemail system you have it connected to. Alternatively, repost your question specifying the make and model of the answering/voicemail system.

How do I change my original message on the answer machine?

Which Uniden DECT 6.0 phone do you have? Uniden makes several models.

For one Uniden phone that I know (DECT-1080), first make sure that the answering system is on. If needed, at the base press Ans On/Off. From a handset, press Menu/OK and use the redial and Phone Book keys to navigate through the menu to AM Operation. Press Menu/OK and navigate to Ans Settings. Press Menu/OK and navigate to Answer On/off. Press Menu/OK and then choose On and then Menu/OK again.

To set the Out-Going Message, again go to the Ans Settings submenu at the handset, and navigate to Record OGM and press Menu OK. Select OGM 1 or OGM 2 and press Menu/OK. Record your message after the tone. To select the OGM message to be heard by incoming callers, navigate to Select OGM, press Menu/OK, select the message and press Menu/OK.

Please note that you also need to make sure that the system isn't set to Announce Only in the Message length section. Enter this submenu from the Answer Settings as above. The choices are 1 minute, 4 minutes and Announce Only.

You can also do set the OGM from a touch tone phone remotely. Press * as the OGM plays and then enter your PIN. Press 06 and then 1 or 2 to select the OGM to edit. Then press 9 to return to the main menu.

However, on the DECT-1480, you set the OGM from the handset but in a different combination. Press Messages/Mute then 5 (or wait for the announcements to end). Press 8 or press the Caller ID/right arrow to navigate through the menu to 8: Record New Greeting. Press Menu/Select. Wait until you hear "Record greeting" then speak your message normally. Press 8 to end and listen to the playback of the greeting. Press End to save the message. (Select the desired greeting by pressing 6 instead of 8.)

Most Uniden DECT phone manuals are available from the product page or this list: .

If you provide your model number in a comment, I'll be glad to give you the specific directions for setting the OGM on your phone.

I hope this helps.

AT T 984

I was told by an AT&T rep that the auto attendant can forward calls to another 984 phone to leave messages for that person. Your original OGM (out going message) on the designated Auto Attendant phone should state greeting and the names and the extensions. The caller presses the buttons for the person they want to reach and their call is forwarded to that extension. That extension, if unattended, will have an OGM telling the calling who they have reached and to leave a message. This feature can only transfer calls to other 984 phones only.

Recording a message

You need to record the OGM message not the memo. Memo is used for just that. You can leave a memo for your other half, child, etc.

The OGM is what callers here when getting your answering machine.

No user manual

To record a new OGM,

Press "menu" on the base unit, then "up" once to record OGM 1 or twice to record OGM 2.

Press "OK" The existing OGM will begin to play. Whilst this is playing press and hold "MEMO"

Record your message, speaking close to the base unit. Press "stop" (square) when finished.

If you decided you don't like your message then, repeat the process above but when it tells you to record your own message press "stop" (Square) and the default will be reset.
