yes, that particular saying will be removed

CUSTOMIZING A MESSAGE
You can add a signature or a 3-icon pass
code to your main unit. This custom feature
allows you to program a 3-icon passcode to
keep nosy intruders out! That means, no one
can use your main unit or read your chips
unless they know your secret code! At the
custom menu, you can select passcode or
signature. If you select passcode, on will
appear on the menu screen and press ENTER
again. Once you have turned on your passcode, it is now time to select your icons.
Press UP or DOWN to select your icon and
set your passcode. Don’t forget your passcode or you won’t be able to read your chips
without reseting your main unit! A signature is
a particular way you always want to end your
message. So, for example, if you always
want to sign your messages saying- Luv yaJen! You can enter that here and it will always
be added to the end of any message you
record! You just select signature from the custom menu. A signature can be made up of a
brief saying, name and a picture. Have fun
and come up with your own fun signature!
