It's not in the manual for the good reason that the AT&T 992 isn't an answering machine. If you want to record an outgoing voicemail greeting, you'll have to do it on the voicemail system, not on the phone. If you need instructions on how to do that, you'll have to tell us the make and model of the voicemail system or answering machine.

Download a copy of the manual here. Record you message following the instructions on page 56. Listen to your messages following the instructions on page 58.
As for the blinking light, you have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system records messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.
Follow the instructions in the "Record your announcement" section on page 5 of the manual. You can download the manual at
My reliable GE 29897GE2-A speakerphone w/ digital answering machine works perfect on my AT&T landline, BUT the answering machine does NOT work when connected to my Vonage VDV21-VD line (w/ voicemail and call forwarding disabled). I called Vonage Customer Support to inquire about this from their website:
"Can I use my own answering machine instead of Vonage server based voice mail? If you wish, you CAN use your existing answering machine with Vonage. All you need to do is DISABLE Vonage’s server based voicemail system by logging into your account at www.vonage.com, and clicking on features. The voicemail menu will allow you to disable the entire Vonage voicemail system."
Vonage Customer Support was clueless. The only resolution offered was their suggestion that I might contact the manufacturer (GE-licensed Atlinks USA, Thomson)... lol, good luck with that!
So I installed a GE in-line "DSL Phone Line Filter" between the Vonage VDV21-VD and the GE 29897GE2-A, BUT the answering machine still does NOT work. It appears that Vonage is simply incompatible with the answering machine despite Vonage's bold claims to the contrary.
Access your voicemail from your mobile cell phone and record a personalised voicemail greeting.
Now call your number from a landline, and when you hear your voicemail greeting prompt you to leave a message, press the required key sequence to access your voicemail from the landline.
The required sequence is dependent on which network/service provider you are using.
If you let me know which network, i can give you more detailed information.

Once there, look on the left-hand side of the page and scroll down to where it says, "Remotely Operating Your Answering Machine" and click.
I hope this helps you!
