How Do I Change a Greeting on a Cell Phone?

Cell phones come with standard greetings that recite the dialed number back to the caller, but these programmed messages may seem too generic. Change the cell phone greeting to personalize your phone and reassure callers that they have reached the correct person. The process takes just a few minutes. Consider that employers, family members, institutions, companies and peers may potentially hear the recorded message.
