you receive. In addition, the calling party may intentionally block their name and/or
phone number from being sent.

About Announcements
•
•
•
Answering System Operation
•
•
You can record two different announcements - one for normal answering and one for
when you've set the system to play the announcement only.
Use normal answering when you want the system to record callers' messages. Use
announcement only when you want to give information to callers without accepting
messages.
If you choose not to record an announcement, the system answers with a prerecorded announcement.
The normal answering pre-recorded announcement says:"Hello, please leave a
message after the tone." The announcement only pre-recorded announcement says:
"We're sorry messages to this number cannot be accepted."
By setting announcement only to on or off, you decide which announcement your
callers will hear when the system answers a call (the system comes set for normal
answering, with announcement only turned off). See Set Announcement Only on
page 24 to change your announcement selection.
