How do I change my home phone greeting

Hi 

 

I have 1571 enabled on my landline but can't find any instructions about changing the greeting message from the default to a personal greeting?

Ah, OK! It seems that EE has not adopted the full BT 1571 service. Probably cuz it's free while BT charge £3.50 pm.

Dial 1571 - Opt 2 - then either:

  1. To use a personal greeting.
  2. To use the standard greeting.

Thanks for your replies.

 

Unfotunately when I dial 1571 I just get my messages. There are no options. Once the messages have been played that's it.

Re: How do I change my home phone greeting

Kind of explains it I suppose. Piry it's not mentioned by EE with the other 1571 info; could've saved me a lot of time .... but thanks anyway.
