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: http://www.uniden.com/bin/venda?ex=co_disp-view&bsref=uniden&scat=dectphones_mnl .

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.

Bought second hand i how do I change the answer phone message to mine?


Hello. I have located the owner manual for your phone and I will provide the link at the end of this response. If all you wish to do is change the outgoing message to your own, do the following:

The OGM is your announcement to the caller and may be up to 2 minute in length. If
you choose not to record your own OGM, the caller will hear a prerecorded OGM. Use
your OGM to advise the caller to begin talking after a beep is heard. For example:
“Hello, we are unable to take your call right now, please leave a message after the beep,
and we’ll return your call as soon as possible. Thank you for calling.”
Recording your OGM
1. Press .
2. The total number of (new) recorded ICM’s will now be announced.
3. Press 8 to stop playback.
4. Press 4 5.
5. Record your OGM.
6. Press 8 to stop recording.
7. Your OGM will be repeated after a few seconds. Repeat the same procedure if
you wish to change the OGM. Any old OGM will automatically be erased when
a new one is recorded.

Here is the link I promised: http://www.doro.com/global/businessunit/dorocare/support/imagesdownloads

I left my Vtech phone in New York, left for Europe and forgot to set the answering machine on. When I call in I get a factory recorded announcement that I'm not available, etc. I have my PIN # with me,...


Can you please specify the exact model of the phone? Because the steps in accessing it remotely varies from model to model. Anyway, you can try to follow the steps posted here and then test:

Remote operation allows you to control the functions of the Answering System when you
are away from the Base,and call from an outside telephone line. The Answering
System cannot be accessed from another telephone on the same line. You can access
many of the Answering System functons from a remote location, such as listening to
messages, changing recorded announcements, and recording memos.
Remote operation can only be accessed from a touch tone telephone. If the remote phone
is set to pulse dialing, switch it tone. If tone dialing is not available, you will not be able
to access the Answering System.
Note: All function codes should be entered within 2 seconds in order to activate Remote
Operation.
To Activate Remote Operation From a Different Telephone Line
1. If the Answering System is OFF, you can dial your telephone number and wait for
the Answering System to answer your call after 10 rings. An announcement, "Please
enter your security code" is given, and you enter your security code to use remote
operation.
2. If the Answering System is ON, it will answer your call and begin playing the currently
selected announcement (as with any incoming call).
3. Enter # followed by your 2 digit security code during the announcement. The
default security code is 19.
4. Once the security code is received, a double confirmation beep will be given, and
you are in Remote Operation mode. You can then control the Answering Machine
functions using the telephone keypad.
5. The user can also enter the Remote Operation mode during message recording. The
procedure is the same as step 3. The recording will be stopped after entering the
valid security code "s#xx " and the incomplete message will be deleted. If " 0s"
is entered, the Answering System will release the line, but the recorded message
will still be retained.
6. If the user enters a wrong security code, the system will release the line.
Playing Messages Remotely
1. Press " #1 ", " #2 " or " #3 " on the touch tone keypad to play the messages in the
corresponding mailbox.
2. The system will announce "Mailbox X. You have XX new messages and XX old
messages" and the system will playback the new message only. If there are no new
messages, the system will announce "Mailbox X. You have XX old messages. On
the other hand, in the absence of old messages, the system will announce only the
number of new messages.
Repeat Messages During Playback
1. Press "#4" once during message playback to repeat the current message.
2. Press "#4" twice within 2 seconds to skip to the previous message.
Skip Messages During Playback
1. Press "#6" once to skip forward to the next message.
Stop Message Playback
1. Pressing "#5" during message playback will stop playback.
Deleting Messages
1. Press "#9" once during message playback to delete the current message.
Note: Playback will pause if "#" or " " is entered. Answering System will wait for the
command in the following 2 seconds. If no further tone is entered, playback will be resumed.
Memo Recording
1. Press " 8".
2. After selecting the mailbox by entering command "1", "2", "3", You will hear, "Now
recording", followed by a beep.
3. Enter "#5" to stop recording when you have finished.
Change OGM Remotely
1. Enter " 7" to record a new OGM. You will hear, "Now recording", followed by a
beep to signal start of recording.
2. Press "#5" to stop recording. Your new OGM will playback automatically.
Check OGM1 Remotely
Enter "#7" to review OGM. You will hear playback of OGM followed by a beep.
Turning Answering System ON or OFF
Pressing "#0" toggles the Answering System ON/OFF. "Answer machine on", or "Answer
machine off" will be announced, followed by a beep.
Voice Menu for Remote Operation
The system provides two pre-recorded voice menus to help you during remote operation.
Press " 5", and you will hear the simple voice menu.
The simple voice menu is as follows:
• Press "#1" to play mailbox 1.
• Press "#2" to play mailbox 2.
• Press "#3" to play mailbox 3.
• Press "#5" to stop.
• Press "#4" to repeat the message.
• Press "#6" to skip the message.
• Press "#9" to erase the message.
• Press " 5" for other functions.
(To advance voice menu)
The advanced voice menu is as follows:
• Press "#7" to review outgoing message.
• Press " 7" to record outgoing message.
• Press " 8" to record memo.
• Press "#4" twice to repeat previous message.
• Press "#0" to turn the system on or off.
• Press " 5" to return to the simple voice menu.
Pressing any function code will stop the voice menu, and perform the corresponding
functions.
Exiting Remote Operation
1. Enter " 0" on the touch tone keypad to exit remote operation mode. The Answering
System confirms your action with a long beep and then disconnects.
2. The Answering System also automatically disconnects if no key is pressed within 20
seconds during remote operation.

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.

Audioline 828


Is the OGM distorted on the callers phone or on the same speaker the incoming messages are heard?

If it's just the speaker, then the speaker itself or the amplifier drving the speaker is defective.

If the OGM is distorted for callers, then the signal processing before the amplifiers is defective.

More than likely it's a replace not a fix. The speaker unit itself will be very difficult to source. Maybe a very well stocked Radio Shack. Any electronics will likely be in a (custom?) integrated circuit.
