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

I can not locate how to limit the number of rings; and the answering machine does not come on even after 20 rings; I can hear my message recording- when I play it back; but it does not come on for incoming...


Ring count You can change the number of times the phone rings before the unit answers calls. The default setting is "4 rings". "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. If you call your phone from outside to listen to new messages, you will 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.

I want to change the nombers of the rings to get start the answering machin


These are the instructions from the manual, which I found here:

http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/GE/21028GE3-A-_E


RING SELECT (FOR ANSWERING MACHINE)

This feature lets you select the number of times you want to phone to ring
before the answering system answers a call.

1. Make sure your phone is OFF (not in talk mode).
2. Press the MUTE/PROG button to go to the main menu.
3. Press CID/VOL (up or down) button to scroll to HANDSET SETUP.
4. Press MUTE/PROG button to confirm.
5. Press the CID/VOL (up or down) button to scroll to the RING SELECT menu.
6. Press MUTE/PROG button to enter the menu. RING SELECT 3 4 5 6 TS shows in the display.
7. Use the CID/VOL (up or down) button to scroll to the your selection. The default setting is 5.
8. Press the MUTE/PROG button to confirm. You will hear a confirmation tone and the new setting shows in the display.

NOTE: If you select Toll Saver (TS) the unit answers after the 3rd ring if there
are NEW messages, OR the unit answers after the 5th ring if there are NO new
messages. This allows user to access their answerer from another location and
then hang up after 4 rings to save long distance charges.

click menu 3 times. click either repeat/rew or skip/ff to set to either 2 for 2 rings or 4 for 4 rings or 6 for 6 rings or h5 for toll saver THEN press set/ringer to save your change. Answering machine will answer after 4 rings if you wanted the 4 & saved by pressing set/ringer. Thats all there is to it.

How to change the numbr or rings before...


1) With the phone in standby mode, press the menu/clock key three times.
You hear “Ring time” and the current ring time ([2 ], [ 4], [6 ], [T ] Toll
saver), and it is displayed on the main base. Then you hear the guidance for setting
the ring time.

2) Press the volume/select/ or up or down arrow key until the desired ring time appears.

3) Press the set key to select the new ring time. You hear a confirmation tone, then
the announcement “Ring time” followed by the new ring time. After a few
seconds, the system announces “To set record time, press menu again.”

Number of rings


Looks like 6 is the Max, according to the Manual.

Setting the Ring Time
Ring Time 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), the answering system
picks up after two rings if you have new messages and after four rings if there are
none.
1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the Ring Time
submenu (see "Entering the Menu Option" on
page 16).
2) Press volume up/down to select a Ring Time (Toll
Saver, 2 Times, 4 Times, or 6 Times).
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.

Toll saver is a feature where you can call the phone yourself, if there are messages it wil answer in 2 rings, if not it'll answer in 4 rings. The idea is to hang up on the 3rd ring and save the LD changes.

Hope that fixed Ya...
