Okay, I am new here (new Verizon customer) and I THINK my question has been answered here. My question is - I cannot record my own custom greeting and ONLY the greeting in MY voice is all a caller will hear? In other words, I want my message to be short and simple like this:
"This is Eric [removed], please leave a message after the beep."
It sounds like I cannot have short, simple message like the one have described. If this is true, please give me tip on how to change my greeting to the shortest duration Verizon will permit.

You can turn off some of the prompts (like leaving a fax, or leaving a call-back number), but you can't remove all of the instructions. If you want callers to hear only your recorded, short message, then you need to use a voicemail service other than Verizon's, like Google Voicemail or YouMail. Both have free and premium versions, and I've found the free version to be more than sufficient for my needs.
