Toll Saver 2/4 or Toll Saver 4/6.
• When set to Toll Saver 2/4, the system

Re phone BT6500, how does one increase the number of rings before it goes to answerphone?


Hi
I give below the step by step procedure for changing the number of rings the phone will sound.
1. Select Menu, Answer Phone is displayed, press
Select.
2. Press until Settings is displayed, press Select.
3. Press to highlight either Ans. & record or
Answer only and press Select.
4. Answer delay is displayed, use or to display
the number of rings you want (0-9 rings or Time
saver) and select Save. Saved will be displayed.
Be aware though that the number of rings needs to be less than your ansaphone service, for BT 1571 this is 5 rings, although more may be possible if you can get BT to change their 1571 for your line.
For more information about your phone you can download a pdf format manual from here:
https://www.shop.bt.com/content/uni2/documentation/8h3j/bt6500_user_guide.pdf
This can be saved to hard disk for future reference.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Panasonic number ring


Answering system settings
Number of rings before the unit answers a call.You can change the number of times the phone rings "Ring count"before the unit answers calls. You can select 2 to 7 rings, or "Toll saver".The default setting is "4 rings"."Toll saver": The unit's answering system answers at the end of the 2nd ring when new messages have been recorded, or at the end of the 5th ring when there are no new messages. If you call your phone from outside to listen to new messages (page 34), you know that there are no new messages when the phone rings for the 3rd time. You can then hang up without being charged for the call.

"Toll saver": The unit answers on the 2nd ring when new messages have been recorded, and on the 4th ring when there are no new messages.

THE ANSWERING SYSTEM WON'T RECORD MESSAGES,ALL MESSAGES GOES INTO POOVIDERS VOICE MAILE, AS IF MY PHONE IS BUSSEY?????? I CHECKED AND RECORD TIME IS NOT SET TO ANNOUNCE ONLY ANS ALL MESSAGES HAVE BEEN...


This happens when the number of rings to answer of the provider voicemail is less than the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. For example: if your provider voicemail rings to answer is set for 3 rings and the answer machine is set for 4 rings then the voicemail answers before the 4th ring, therefore the answer machine will never get a message. I would call the service provider's customer service number and request they increase the rings to answer above the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. If you don't want voicemail to answer any calls(when your line is busy or when the answer machine is turned off) ask your service provider to disable voicemail.

To many rings for the machine to pick up


Unfortunately this machine does not have the facility to change the number of rings before it answers. The following extract from the manual describes how the number of rings is controlled:

Toll Saver Facility
Your unit has a Toll Saver Facility. This means your unit will answer call on the 4th rings if there are no new messages, or on the 2nd ring if new messages have been record. Therefore when you are calling your unit remotely you will know by the 3rd ring if there are no new messages. So you can hang up saving the cost of the call.

You can download the manual from here:

How do I change the number of rings before the answering machine kicks in on a Casio machine?


Some of the older models have a slide switch on the side or bottom of the machine that could change from 1 to 3 rings. If you have a set up menu for greetings the number of rings to choose may be there when you go to record your announcement. Do you have the Model number?

Hangs up after 2 seconds into recording message


SETTING THE RINGS TO ANSWER
This setting allows you to select the number of rings before the answering system answers a call.

At idle status, hold down the volume "UP" button over two seconds to enter the ring times setting of answering. The answering system announces, "ring time two" (the default is 2).

To change the rings to answer, press and release the "PREVIOUS" button (<<) or the "NEXT" button (>>) and the answering system announces a number such as "2, 1, toll save, 9...” OR "2, 3, 4...", if you select the toll save and the digit LED light shows a “γ”, the answering system announces “toll save”.

After choosing a number, press the “PLAY/STOP” button one time to store the rings to answer, and the answering system confirms the setting and returns to the idle status.

NOTE: when the machine fails to operate properly, just unplug the power for 10 seconds, and redo the settings.
