You can record a new greeting in the Greetings & Pin area by tapping the default greeting and then recording a new one.

Step 2: On the iPhone’s screen, a ‘Set up’ button will be displayed. If you have previously used voicemail on your iPhone, enter your oil password here. If this is the first time you’ve used the site, create a new password and enter it. When you’re finished, click ‘Done.’
