CHANGE THE NUMBER OF RINGS ON THE VTECH CS6719-16


The CS6719-16 isn't an answering machine. It will ring until someone answers, some other answering machine picks up, or the caller hangs up.

If you want to change the number of rings before an answering machine picks up, please reply to this post and specify the answering machine.

I can not get my messages that are stored in the phone. Model # t2326. Cordless 2.4GHz technology


That model has Caller ID/Call Waiting and stores 30 calls. I f the caller ID does not display when the phone is ringing, assuming the display works, report to the local phone company. Make sure they have you turned on for caller ID service. If the calls are displayed when it rings but cannot be retrieved later, the phones is defective or they have been accidentally erased.

Caller ID does not work


I FIXED IT!!!  YIPEEE!!

What I did was UNPLUG the base's power unit from the wall... waiting about one minute, and plugged it back in.  That caused it to "reboot" the entire system, and the CID now shows itself.

Caller id


This is a feature from your phone company you may have to pay extra for. Caller ID information is normally transmitted just after the first ring. When you are using call waiting there is no ring.
