    Same problem as described. The manual says that you can assign an individual announcement to line 1, line 2, or both, but then never documents how to do this.

Astonishingly, assignment of announcement to phone line is not documented in the user manual. Tech support was totally worthless concerning this issue. I had to discover it by trial and error. To assign an announcement to a specific phone line do the following:
1) Record your announcement message for a, b, c, ao, etc. as documented
2) Press program
3) Keep pressing the feature button until ANNC appear at the bottom of screen, line 1 appears at the top, and the letter 'a' appears in the middle.
4) Choose the announcement to be assigned to Line 1 by pressing the select button
5) Press the feature button again. Line 2 appears in the display.
6) Repeat step 4 to select the announcement to be assigned to Line 2.
7) Press program button, or take phone off-hook to end the sequence.

Shame on AT&T for such shoddy documentation, and lack of support for their products!

    Thank you for figuring this out. I have an old 1872 machine and the announcements got messed up due to a power outage. I could not figure this out at all until I read this.

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 need to change the name that is said when someone dials an extension. For example, if I call the main number then dial an extension, I hear "Transfering you to 'blah blah'". I want to change...


The recording of the name you hear announced during the transfer is the recording that the particular mailbox owner has recorded. If that mailbox owner has not recorded a name then you will hear a system prompt of the extension number. Access that mailbox as the owner and you can record a new name for the mailbox. This is easiest if done from that mailbox owners phone, you will need the password for the mailbox if password protection is enabled. Once in the mailbox it will play any new messages then follow the prompts to get to user options.
