Change voice mail message from one person to another person


Step 1 Lift the handset for your telephone and listen for the dial tone. Dial the access code you were given by Verizon when you signed up for residential telephone service. Dialing the access code will call the voicemail system. If you do not have an access code, you will need to call Verizon Customer Servicemag-glass_10x10.gif (see link in Resources).
  • Step 2 Identify the telephone number you are setting up voicemail services for. If you are calling from that telephone number, enter the temporary passcode and then press "#." The temporary passcode is the last 4 digits of your residential telephone number. If you are calling from a different phone, press "*" when the system greeting starts to play, then enter the 10-digit telephone number when prompted. After this, you will be asked to input the temporary passcode.
  • Step 3 Choose a new passcode. The passcode must be from 4 to 8 digits in length. It should be easy for you to remember, but difficult for others to guess. Do not use easy to guess numbers, such as 1234 or 1111. Also do not re-enter the same temporary passcode, since it will be easy for anyone to guess.
  • Step 4 Record your name. Simply say your name, without a long complicated message. This recording is used by the voicemail system to identify you whenever you forward a message to another user. It is not used as the standard greeting when a caller is directed to your voicemail to leave a message.
  • Step 5 Record or change your personal greeting. This greeting is played any time someone reaches your voicemail box. Record a friendly greeting to announce that you are unavailable and will return all calls upon your return.
    Decide if you want to set up a different mailbox for each family member. Verizon residential telephone service allows you to set up multiple mailboxes so that everyone can have his own private message center. Callers who reach voicemail will be prompted to press "1" to leave a message for one person, press "2" for the next person, and so on.
  • Step 6 Hang up the telephone. When you have finished setting up the voicemail system on your Verizon residential phone line, hang up the phone to end the call and exit the voicemail system.

    We can't set the voicemail greeting to our own message


    this way will take awhile, but this is the only way i know how to record a personal greetong so far:

    • on page 10 of the manual, it tells you to press and hold the 1/E key.

    • This will automatically connect you to your voice mail.

    • after listening to your messages or no messages, the robot lady says, "main menu."

    • after hearing this, pay close attention because she asks if you would like to be taken to "personal options" (press 4)

    • she will then ask if you would like to be taken to "greetings or recorded name" (press 3)

    • she will then ask if you want "to change [your] personal greeting" (press 1)

    • then she asks 3 options of what you can do (ie her telling people your number, then telling them to leave messages; you saying your name, then her telling people to leave messages; or what you asked about: recording your own greeting).

    • To record your "personal greeting," press 3

    • then she gives you directions for this, etc.

    hope this helps and that it is the same for your phone... i have a propel A767... it took me a long time to figure this out, so you are not alone :D
