29875GE2-B how to change greeting

Please advise how to change the greeting on my 29875CE2-B answering machine, so I can tell people another number to reach me while I'm away.

I think that would be best to do, because when I call my answering maching from another phone, trying to access any messages on my home answering machine, I enter the factory access code after the beep,but there are no menu options for me to choose from, just silence.
Thank you! I need to get this cleared up todnight as I leave Monday AM.

Call Pilot voicemail Nortel

Depending what number your extensions start with, you need to go to the programming for the auto attendant and "undefine" the number in the menu. More than likely, it is built as a "thru-dial" and allows callers to punch in the extension. If you remove this, callers will have no other choice but to use the options in the menu. I can walk you through these changes if you want.

Answering machine hangs up during greeting

this problem is cause by excessive loop current from telco. the answer to this is to put a 600 ohm resistor in series with either tip or ring to the cable which feeds the answering machine. excessive loop current related issues can be the toughest problems to troubleshoot
