Question about GE 29869GE2 Digital Answering Machine
Manual is online:
A warning I'll pass on that I just learned:
I just lost 57 special messages that I had saved for years to follow up on, and learned the hard way (if you haven't come across it yet):
From page 6 of manual:
INSTRUCTIONS FOR MOVING THE ANSWERER...
3. Go to the electrical outlet and unplug the power supply. DO NOT UNPLUG THE POWER JACK CONNECTED TO THE UNIT. If you do, all memory will be erased.
I wasn't even moving it to another place, the jack just came a little loose while moving it around the table, and all the messages disappeared. A very poor detail in an otherwise (in my experience) well-designed machine. Manual's page 6 covers this: http://www.fixya.com/support/p129719-ge_29869ge2_digital_answering_machine/manual-13322/page-6

Recording Your Announcement
Before using this answering system, you
should record the announcement (up to
one minute long) that callers will hear
when the system answers a call. If you
choose not to record an announcement,
the system answers with a prerecorded
announcement: "Hello. Please leave a
message after the tone."
1 Press and hold annc/skip. The system
beeps. Speak toward the microphone
normally, from about nine inches away.
While you are recording, the Message
Window displays -.
2 To stop recording, release .annc/skip
The system automatically plays back
To review your announcement, press
and release .annc/skip
