First Major iPhone Frustration

By switching to the iPhone, I had to set up my voicemail again. As I wandered through the process, it kept asking me to press buttons. This was all fun and games until it got to the part where I had to record my personal greeting. I started recording it, then had to press pound to stop it. But before I could do so, the screen went blank. Pressing the single button again, I was back to the locked screen. I slid to unlock it and pressed the Phone icon and finally got back to where I could press pound. Yarg!

Okay, second try - keep it really short. "Hi, you've reached Ammy's phone. Leave a message." Too slow! Black screen, slide to unlock, yadda yadda. Meanwhile, the message isn't exactly worth saving because it now says, "Hi, you've reached Ammy's phone. Leave a message. Aw crap! Stupid freaking phone. Just let me have a number pad you piece of s#!t! Gah!"

So I give up and go back to just letting it announce my name. I figure I'll try again when I have more time to play with settings.

As it turns out, there's a Voicemail icon in the Phone area. From there, you can record a custom greeting. I recorded a simple greeting and got on with my day.

I really do miss real buttons. I'll be fine though. There's a lot of faboo to go with the frustrations.


  • Hopefully you get to import your ring from your old phone.
