GE 25861GE3 Answering Systems Plays Back Messages in Spanish. How do I change it back to English?

The phone was moved and somehow changed from English to Spanish. The greeting is in English. The playback is in Spanish. (i.e), ("you have 5 messages") ("Mesaage 1, Saturday, 1:00 PM, July 31") The women reciting the details of the message is in Spanish. The acutal message is in English. I would like it all to be in English. How do I fix it?

Answering machine is in spanish not english


According to the manual, you hold the SKIP button down for 2 seconds and it reverts back to English. (Don't hold it down again or it's Espanol time).

My answering machine

I think I found a solution. On my phone model 27996GE3-A, I unplugged the phone for a few seconds, plugged it back in and waited until the display showed the number of messages and then I pressed the "skip" and "review" buttons at the same time and then it announced the the language changed to english. Hope this helps.

Answering Machine Language

Just as the other answers that were just have to press the skip button. Just make sure that you press announce on the cradle...not on the phone...then when you hear the voice in Spanish just press and HOLD the skip button until it changes to English. Good Luck
