How to change voive message


Press MENU until you hear "Record Outgoing Message."
Press REC/MEMO. The voice prompt will say "Now recording", following by a tone.
Begin speaking after the tone, towards the front edge of the Base Unit. The Base Unit display becomes a timer as you record your outgoing message.

Your message must be longer than two seconds and shorter than 90 seconds.

HAVE GE PHONES MODEL NO. 25942J-3C, SERIAL NO. 90557643. HAVE LOST MY USER MANUAL AND NEED TO CHANGE MY ANSWERING MACHINE MESSAGE AND CAN'T REMEMBER HOW TO DO SO. HELP.


Here is the answer from the User Guide found on the manufacturers website. for more help go to http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/IB/25942EE1_IB.pdf

Recording the Outgoing Announcement

For best results when recording, you should be about nine inches from the microphone,

and eliminate as much background noise as possible.

1. Make sure the answering system is On2. Press and hold the announce button on the base.

3. Begin speaking after you hear the beep.

4. Release the button when you finish your announcement.

NOTE: If you choose not to record an outgoing announcement, a default

announcement plays instead. To return to the default announcement after

you have recorded your own outgoing announcement, press the announce

button and release it when you hear the beep.

Sample Outgoing Announcement

"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. Th anks.

How do i change outgoing answer phone message


Solution for Fax1360, if this does not work please let me know as this process should be the same.

Recording an outgoing message (OGM) on an external TAD 7

Timing is important in recording this message. The message sets up the ways to handle both manual and automatic fax reception.

a Record 5 seconds of silence at the beginning of your message. (This allows your machine time to listen for the fax CNG tones of automatic transmissions before they stop.)

b Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.

c End your 20-second message by giving your Fax Receive Code for people sending manual faxes. For example: 'After the beep, leave a message or send a fax by pressing *5 1 and Start.'

Recommendation: recommend beginning your OGM with an initial 5-second silence because the machine cannot hear fax tones over a resonant or loud voice. You may try omitting this pause, but if your machine has trouble receiving, then you must rerecord the OGM to include it.

Forgot how to record outgoing message on KX-TGA


KX-TGA 101S is the model number of the hand-set. Can you send me the model number of the answering machine? Also do you have the manual for both hand-set and answering machine? If not I can give you the link to download both manuals for free.

Nseed to reset message on answering machine


There are two models - The TRU8885 and the TRU8885-2 -
For the TRU8885 the manual PDF form >>>Click Here<<<
The solution is on page 24 + 57 It starts on Pg 24 as...

Record Greeting allows you to record a personal outgoing message (greeting) which
the answering system automatically plays when you receive a call.

1) Enter the Answring Setup menu, and then the
Record Greeting sub-menu (see "Entering the
Menu" on page 16). To record greeting press
[STA RT] appears.

2) Press the START soft key. You will hear “Record Greeting.“ The message counter
displays 30 and then begins to count down.

3) Position yourself near the base microphone and record your greeting.

4) When you are finished recording, press the STOP soft key. Your greeting will
playback for confirmation.

Selecting Your Greeting (Base only)

Select Greeting allows you to choose between the two outgoing messages, a prerecorded
message or your own greeting.

1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the
Select Greeting submenu (see "Entering the
Menu” on page 16). P lay back greetin g
appears, and the current outgoing message is
played. LCD is an example if you recorded your greeting.

2) Once you have recorded a personal greeting, press the CHANGE soft key to
choose the greeting. The selected outgoing message is played. Each time you
press the CHANGE soft key, the phone switches the outgoing message between
the prerecorded and the personal outgoing message.

There is more on the PDF - Just ask if you need more

For the TRU8885-2 is essentially the same. The manual PDF form >>>Click Here<<<

If we need to dig further, just ask! :) We are just a mouse click away!
