The D1600 isn't an answering machine. Please refer to the documentation for whatever answering machine you have connected to your phone. If you need further assistance, feel free to reply to this post but be sure to specify the make and model of the answering machine.

    I know it is not an answering machine. It is a cordless phone. It has voice mail, but I would like it to ring longer so I have a better chance of getting to it before it goes to voicemail. I have the phone manual and it does not say how to adjust the number of rings. The phone Users guide is for Uniden D1660 series. The phone itself says "DECT 6.0" Thanks!

    The voicemail isn't on your phone. It's a voicemail system provided by your telephone service provider. Please contact them for instructions on accessing and configuring their system.

Hi.

Setting the Number of Rings

The ring time setting allows you to set the number of rings the caller hears before your answering system plays the outgoing message. You can set the ring time to answer after two, four, or six rings. If you enable the Toll Saver (TS) setting, the answering system picks up after two rings if you have new messages, and after four rings if there are
none. This way, if you make a long distance call to check your messages, you can hang up after the third ring to avoid long distance billing charges.

  1. Press Menu/Select.
  2. Select the Ans. Setup menu, and then the Ring Time submenu.
  3. Move the cursor to select a ring time (Toll Saver, 2 Times, 4 Times, or 6 Times).
  4. Press Menu/Select. You will hear a confirmation tone.
post a comment for further assistance.


Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

SOURCE: Our DECT2015 phone only rings 4 times and then

Do you have voicemail or an answering machine? This is usually a sign that another device (fax, answering machine or voicemail service) is set to answer the call after 4 rings. You will need to lengthen to number of rings before the service/device in question picks up. (The method to reset this will depend on the service/device that is picking up.) Another possibility is a call forwarding service that is enabled at 4 rings.

I hope this helps. Please write back with details on the device that could be picking up for details on setting the number of rings. If you have voicemail or call forwarding, check with your telephone service provider to lengthen the number of rings before the service kicks in. (There are too many for me to know all of the providers instructions.)

My att cellphone only rings 4 times before voicemail


If the problem is with an AT&T cellphone you will need to call them or go log in online to change that feature, however if it is with a Uniden Cordless Phone (the product this question is linked to) the directions below found in their manual should help:

Uniden Cordless Phone
From the base
1) Press [clock/menu] three times. The base displays the current number of rings (2, 4, 6, or TS for toll saver) and announces the setting.
2) Press [>>/select] or [<</select] until the desired ring time appears.
3) Press [set]. A confirmation tone sounds, and the answering machine announces the new ring time.

From the handset
1) Press the MENU soft key. Select the ANSW. SETUP menu, and then the RING TIME submenu.
2) Move the cursor to select a Ring Time (2 TIMES, 4 TIMES, 6 TIMES or TOLL SAVER).
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.

Hope this is of help

My uniden xdect sse25 cordless doesn't ring for long enough before diverting to the answer machine I have mobility problems how can i extend the length of the ring


From the handset, press Select/Menu and then press the down arrow to get to Ans Setup. Press Select again. Go down to Ring Time. Then select the number of rings (6, 9, 12 or Toll Saver (TS)). Press Select then press Flash/Exit to exit the menu system. Toll Saver picks up after 2 rings if you have new messages or 4 rings if you don't. This lets you hang up before the answering system picks up if you are using the remote phone access feature.

Note: if you have Voice Mail from your telephone provider, you need to set that to a longer number of rings separately. Consult with your phone company on that option.

The manual for the XDECT SSE25 is available from Uniden here: http://www.uniden.com.au/RESOURCES_MAIN/pdfs/XDECT_SSE25_OM.pdf . See page 19 (23 of the PDF). You will need Adobe Reader to access the manual.

I hope this helps.

Our phone rings only twice and then goes to the answering machine. How do I change the number of rings to 4 or 5. I lost the Uniden user manual.


With the phone in standby mode, press the menu/clock key three times.
You hear "Ring time" and the current ring time, and it is displayed on the main base. Then you hear the guidance for setting the ring time.

Press the volume/select-up-down until the desired setting appears.

Press the set key.

Full instructions are in the "Setting the Ring Time" section of the manual (page 36 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download a copy at

Hi There my uniden 5.8GHz Digital rings only twice before answer machine starts how do i extent the time of ringing? thanks


For the TRU9380, you can set the number of rings for the answering system from the handset. Press Menu/Clear and select Answ Setup. Then choose the Ring Time submenu. Move the cursor to select the number of rings (Toll Saver, 2, 4 or 6 Times). Press Select to save the setting; you will hear a confirmation tone. (Note: the answering machine must be on.) In Toll Saver, it picks up after 2 rings if you have new messages and after 4 rings, otherwise.

You can find the manual for most Uniden 5.8 GHz phones by looking up your model here: http://www.uniden.com/products/productlisting.cfm?cat=Cordless%20Phones%205.8%20GHz%20Digital . Check here if you have a different model.

I hope this helps.
