Please empty your mailbox so that you will not be experiencing this issue. Then reset your unit by unplugging it from the power for 2 minutes. Plug in the power after 2 minutes then test again the issue again.

Record messages


Make sure it's in the "Answer" mode, not the "Announce" mode. The Announce mode merely plays an outgoing message but does not record an incoming message. The Answer mode does record incoming messages.
Since you declined to specify the model of your Uniden phone I can't tell you exactly how to switch modes. Select the model of your phone from the list beginning here to download a copy of the manual.

"A" displayed and will not record caller's message


Your answering machine is set to "announce." In this mode it can announce that you're not available to take the call but will not record a message. The machine automatically switches to this mode when its memory is full.
If the memory is not full, you can switch from the "announce" mode to the "answer" mode by pressing the [ANSWER ON/OFF] button until it lights up in red.
If you need a manual, you may view one here.

Trouble shooting


You're in the Announce mode, where the machine plays an announcement but does not record a message. It switches to this mode automatically when memory is full. If the memory is not full, you can switch between the Announce and Answer modes by pressing the [ANSWER ON/OFF] button. You're in the Answer mode when the button lights up red.

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.

I have a gigaset 4215 answering machine (but it says 4200 on the actual phone)...but no manual...and am trying to figure out how to record message for the answering machine so people know its mine...but...


You control the answering machine from the handset. First turn on the answering machine. Press Menu then use the up/down arrows keys to navigate to Ans Machine. Press OK then navigate to Answering M. Look for a check next to this to indicate it is on. Press OK to toggle the answering system on or off. Then press End or left arrow to return to the previous menu. If the machine's memory is full, it will switch off. Delete messages so that the unit will keep the answering machine feature on.

Next to record a new message follow the above steps to reach the Ans Machine menu and press OK. Scroll to Announcements and press OK. Scroll to Record Annc or Rec Annc Only (if no messages will be recorded). Press OK then bring the handset to your ear and listen for the notification of recording and then the tone. State your message clearly into the microphone of the handset. Press End to stop recording and listen to the unit play back your announcement. (It will stop automatically after 170 seconds or a 2 second pause in your speaking.) If an Annc Only message is available, the machine will play it when the memory is full. Otherwise, it will turn off.

To select your announcement (and recording type) follow the above steps to Announcements and press OK. Then scroll to Mode and press OK. Scroll to Annc or Annc Only (available if the Announcement only recording has been made) then press OK. Again OK toggles the announcement on or off; look for a check mark to indicate the announcement will be played. Press End to exit the menu.

Retrevo has the manual for the Gigaset 4215 here: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Siemens-4215-Telephones-manual/id/23319bh144/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to download the file.

I hope this helps.
