Record a Personal Voicemail Greeting on a Samsung Reality Phone

Updated on April 30, 2016

Want to change the message people hear on your voice mail? It never hurts to break up the monotony and change your personal voice mail greeting once in a while.

Making up your own custom, voice mail message on your Samsung Reality cell phone is pretty easy to do once you know how.

I struggled for a minute or two trying to figure this out. I kept searching the settings and tools menu thinking I would see an edit command for changing my voice mail greeting. I was looking in all the wrong places. I should have done less work with my eyes and more with my ears.

There are a couple variations of personal voice mail introductions you can create. This article focuses on leaving a completely personalized, custom, greeting.

Keep reading to learn how to change your personal voice mail greeting on your Samsung Reality Cellphone.

Step 1 Get Into The Menu

From your Samsung Reality "Home" screen (the screen that typically has your wallpaper image as well as the menu, contacts, message and dialer command), go ahead and press "Menu" on the touchscreen.

Step 2 - Look for Messaging

Now you should be in the main menu. You'll notice that your Reality touch screen is loaded with icons to choose from.

Look for the icon that says "Messaging"

Press "Messaging"

Step 3

You'll be in the messaging menu. Look for and press "Voicemail"

On my phone "Voicemail" is the fourth choice down the menu.

BIG TIP: You can easily blast through these first three steps by simply calling your voice mail starting with step 4 below. In other words, use your preferred, quickest way you normally use to get into your voice mail if steps 1 to 3 are too tedious for you.

Step 4 - Call Your Voice Mail

In the "Voicemail" section of your phone go ahead and call your voicemail by pushing the "Call" button on your Reality touch screen. Don't worry if you don't have any messages right now. Just call it.

As mentioned at the end of step 3, you could go a different route than steps 1 through 4 and call your voice mail directly in whatever the fastest way you know how is.

Step 5 - Call Your Voicemail, ID Number, Etc.

Enter your ID number and get into your voice mail as you normally would.

Step 6 - Personal Options

You'll hear a bunch of commands on from your voice mail. Choose the "Personal Options" command.

Side Note: Some people get stuck on this one since they don't relate the words "Personal Options" with changing your own custom voice mail message. "Personal Options" is correct though so go for it :-)

Step 7 - The Greeting Options

Then choose:

#3 "Record Greetings"

#1 "Change personal Greetings"

#3 "Personal Greetings" .... Note: There are two other choices where you can have your phone number automatically added to your message but I choose #3 for this article as I'm trying to show you an option where you can leave your own, completely original message.

Step 8 - Wanna Hear the Old Greeting?

You are going to hear the old greeting whether you like it or not. The phone will play it automatically for you. Hearing the old message is a good thing. Believe it or not, you may have completely forgot what your old message sounds like. Listen to it, you might love it so much you might not want to change it.

Step 9 - Make The Change

Choose the option to re-record your personal greeting. As of the time of this article, the message will tell you to hit "*" (star) when you are ready to begin recording personal voice mail greeting.

Then

Being speaking your new greeting into the phone. This will overwrite your old greeting and give you a new greeting.

Then

Press "#" (pound) when you are done recording your message. Don't worry if you don't like it, you'll also be given options to delete and rerecord. Keep listening to your phone :-)

Now You Are All Done

You'll be given the opportunity to replay your old message and make changes if necessary.

That's about it. You are now all done setting up your voice mail introduction.

I hope this helped. Thanks for stopping by.

        Hi people, my name is Bridget ! Having gone through the stress recently, I realized getting a legitimate whatsapp hacker to hire is actually a lot of work but it is worth it when you get someone who can help. There was this mobile phone hack/penetration expert and CEH who helped me with a remote phone hack recently, and he did an amazing job. You can contact him using the email address making this comment!
