Question about GE 29878GE1 Digital Answering Machine
How do you change the message?
From the Manual: RECORDING THE GREETING Before using your new answerer, you should record a greeting (the announcement callers hear when your answering system answers a call). If you don't record a greeting, callers hear a default greeting which says, "Record message after tone." When recording the greeting you should be about 6 inches from the unit. Eliminate as much background noise as possible. 1. Prepare your greeting. Sample Greeting: Hi, this is (use your name here). I can?t answer the phone right now, so please leave your name, number, and a brief message after the tone, and I?ll get back to you. Thanks. 2.Hold down the GREETING button. After the tone, you have 30 seconds to record your greeting. 3.Release the GREETING button when you finish. The greeting will playback automatically. NOTE: Your recording time should not be less than 2 seconds. Otherwise the unit will return to the default greeting.

SOURCE: Remote retrieval of messages
Call your phone number. After the greeting is finished and you hear the beep to leave a message push 123 on a touch tone phone and you will be given a list of things you can choose to do including listening to messages. 123 is the default security code unless the security code has been changed. Since you dont know how to retrieve messages Im assuming the default security code has never been changed.
If 123 is not the default security code and you dont know what the code is, you can change your code in the setup menu. You get to this by pushing the stop/set button on the answering machine and holding it for a couple of seconds. Since GE doesnt offer a downloadable manual for the 29878GE1 you should probably take a look at the manual for the 29875GE1 which is basically the same model with the addition of a digital message counter. Hope this helps.
