Question about Vtech 5.8GHz Cordless Phone with Digital Answering System
We have voice mail and do not want the answering maching to answer. The answering maching is picking up after 2 rings even tho it is set at 6.
Can't find owners manual.
Check call waiting feature with mobile provider on number of rings to voice mail. Many problems repaired with booting phone (holding on/off button down till screen logo comes on & removing charged battery cleaning contact connections on phone and battery with DRY SYnthetic NOT cotton cloth ideally clean battery with alcohol swab let dry before returning to phone

Yes, there is an on/off for the answering machine portion of the phone. On default it's set to off til you set your settings and record your greeting.

SOURCE: we can call out but
Very strange, when someone calls in, even though it doesn't ring, can you answer it? If you have called ID enabled does it indicate that someone is calling?
Give me a bit more info here and I can definitely help, thanks!

If you have an answering machine connected to the same line as your fax:
To make sure the printer picks up
incoming faxes, set Auto Answer to On, and then set the printer to pick up
after a greater number of rings than the answering machine. For example, if the
answering machine picks up calls after four rings, then set the printer to pick
up after six rings. This way, the answering machine picks up calls first and
your voice calls are received. If the call is a fax, then the printer detects
the fax signal on the line and takes over the call.
If you have a voicemail feature associated to the same line as your fax:
Voice mail and fax can share the
same telephone line if you subscribe to a distinctive ring service offered by
your telephone company. This feature allows you to have multiple telephone
numbers on one telephone line. Each telephone number has a designated ring
pattern (single ring, double ring, triple ring, or double and triple ring). The
different ring patterns let you know which telephone number was dialed, and
which device you should use to answer the call.
If you do not have distinctive ring
service, then set the printer to receive faxes manually (Auto Answer Off). This
setting lets you receive both voice calls and fax calls, but works best if you
use voice mail more often. You need to turn off voice mail whenever you are
expecting a fax.
I hope this helps.
