Question about RCA 25205RE1 Phone
I have an RCA Visys 25205. I am using only one phone line, so I have the line plugged into the Line 1&2 port, as the instruction manual says. I want to use the "personal" recording for Line 1 in order to have callers hear the same message at any hour. I cannot get the phone to record my message, and I am following the instructions.
Also, do the Configure OGA settings have anything to do with this? These are separate from the Record OGA settings.
Called the company. There is a misprint in the instructions.
In the section titled "Out-Going Announcement RECORD" on last step it says Press Exit to stop recording. It should have said Press Sel/Save.
I did this and it worked.
Repeat for Line 2 if you are doing both lines.
Next thing is to make sure you go right to the section titled "Configure Out-Going Announcement" and select the right type of message you want callers to hear for each line.
Worked like a charm and took 3 seconds to get 2 different personal messages on the machine.

Melissa is correct about the manual being wrong. You have to press the Sel/Save button, not the Exit button after recording a personal message. Then you have to follow the directions on page 23 to Configure each line to Personal Message.

Before you try and set the Personal voice message in place of the default, restore the Defaults (pg 24): Press Menu and scroll to Restore Settings and press Sel/Save set the telephone back to its default by selecting Yes with the up and down buttons.
Select Menu and scroll to Answering Sys and press Sel/Save and scroll to OGA Record. Press Sel/Sav and scroll to Line 1 or 2 and then scroll to Person and press Sel/Sav, Record your message and Press Sel/Sav at the end and not EXIT as shown in the manual. Pick up you phone and replace it. Do this for each line. By the way, I tried this with one telephone junction with two lines and one cord connected to the phone; it didn't work, so I have two separate line from two junction boxes and it works fine.
