Tips and warnings

  • You can record a personal greeting up to two minutes in length, but the length of your recorded greeting takes away from the overall time you have open for new messages. To get more time for recorded messages, shorten your personal greeting.
  • To erase a greeting you've recorded, press "Greeting Check," then press "Erase."
