Depending on your wireless service provider, the method for changing your voice mail greeting or voice mail password might differ. You should be able to access the options for changing your voice mail greeting or voice mail password when you check your voice mail. For more information, contact your wireless service provider.
Recording your outgoing message, or "greeting" as it is sometimes referred to, is a function that is dependent on the type of voice mail system you have. In any event you will need the password that's associated with that extension as well as knowledge of the voice mail pilot number (the main voice mail number). Actual instructions will vary widely as no two voice mail systems are the same. Contact your phone system administrator for assistance.
If you are using an Active Voice product (typical w/ NEC) you need to change the hours of operation on the voice mail system. "Night Mode" only changes the ringing characteristics of the phone system and where calls ring, not the greetings that play on the voice mail. The voice mail plays a particular greeting (Day/Night/Holiday) based on the time of day specified in the schedule. The system administrator for the voice mail would have to make this change.
And you won't. The model you listed is just a phone, it is not an answering machine. You either have voice mail as part of your phone service, or you have another RCA system phone that is acting as the voice mail machine.
the voice mail key is the #1 key on the keypad as well it should have an envelope icon on the keypad as well, just press and hold the #1 key and follow the step by step instructions to setup you voice mail.
As bsmither said, how voice mail is accessed is very dependent on your phone company and how they've set things up. They would be the best place to ask about any problems you're having there.
As for programming the voice mail buttons on the 25204, I was confused by that one as well until I finally figured it out. Specializations aside, they're just speed dial buttons, and are programmed in exactly the same way as the ones along the right side of the phone. RCA could have documented that detail better than they did.
In my case, with Vonage, I just programmed the buttons with the numbers for the lines that they're associated with. When they dial and I'm connected to the voice mail system, I'm prompted for my VM password, which I then enter manually.
