How do i get the phone to ring more than 6 times before the answerphone takes over


This works with my phone on O2 UK

Enter the code **61*901*11*30# onto the screen then dial as in making a call, where 30 is the max time in seconds before voice mail kicks in. You can set it to either 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 seconds.

No spaces in code.

Panasonic KX-T7668 handsets. How to make different extensions ring / not ring on an in-coming call.


The first thing to check is the total "Ring Equivalent Number" or "REN". This is a maximum number that your line will support. For example if the line REN maximum is 4, then it will support 4 phones with a REN of 1 (4x1=4). If, however, you have 3 phones with a REN of 1.5 each then it won't work (3x1.5=4.5). It may work on 2 of them and not the 3rd one, but equally it may work on one or none at all.
The REN is usually on a label on the phone or in the manual, but the line REN is set by your supplier and you will need to contact them for that number.

How do I extend number of rings on my handset


What product would that be Ann as not product is listed in the question. I would suspect the answering machine settings is the place to look to increase the number of rings before the answering function kicks in. Maybe you could provide the make and model number to help us figure out a more specific answer

Why won't my answerphone work properly?


Either you must set your home answering machine to answer on fewer rings OR disable the phone company's message system.

I need to change the number of rings before phone goes to voicemail


First, call your voice mail. After the messages you will be given a menu to follow. On the Sony Ericsson W350 I went to Personal Options (4) then to Administrative Options (2) and finally Prompt Level (3). After reaching Prompt Level you have the option to shorten or extend the number of rings. At this point I chose to shorten the prompt and then I exitted the system.

We have an se445 cordless phone/answerphone. with answerphone on, the line rings 4 times then stops briefly before continuing to ring instead of cutting onto answerphone. BT line has been checked and gain...


Regarding the Philips SE445 cordless phone/answerphone. I posted my problem where it rings 4 times then continues to ring without cutting into the answerphone. My phone is now fixed and working as it should which is great. I was unable to make calls because I had no dial tone and although Virgin checked my line and said it was fine, it obviously wasn't. The problem was with the line in the Exchange Box - the big green boxes that are located on the roadside - the line was broken there. Once fixed, I had my dial tone and the SE445 is working perfectly. To nomad1066, I would insist that BT check their Exchange Boxes as this is probably where the problem lies. Check whether you have a dial tone. Hope this helps.
