Depending on the type and version of your partner system the procedure should be as follows:
1) from either ext 10 or 11 press the feature key and 00 on the dialpad
2) press the left hand intercom twice
the display should say system programming
3) dial "#506"
the display should say vms hunt delay
4) enter either 1 for day ringing assignment or 2 for night ring
5) dial the 2 digit line number i.e. line 1 is 01...
the display should say the ammount of rings previously programmed (3 Rings)
6) dial "2" on the dial pad
repeat the steps from number 3 on for the rest of the lines
7) press feature 00 whem finished


hope this helps.

How does voice mail work?


She may have a standard phone, not all phones come with an answering machine. Maybe she has voicemail with the phone company and calls are getting answered back there after three rings instead of her new machine that answers after five rings. If that's the case she needs to get the phone company to shut off their voicemail so her machine can answer those calls.

How do I send a call to internal voice mail?


Use feature 986 (transfer to VM) then enter in the co-workers extension number. That will bypass the extension and send the caller directly to his voicemail.

The call forwarding was turned off. To turn on, press speaker, enter 793, press 1(for set), press extention number, and enter 300. If you have call forwarding on and are looking for more rings, do the above steps except press 2 (for clear).

Ringing & voicemail transfer for DCS


I would need to know what group your lines are ringing in to.(Look at the phone display on any ringing phone and it will tell you the "ringing group" probably 500, 501 etc.) With that known we can add all three stations to that group and mark the "NEXT" option to go to station 202. Just have 202 forwarded to voice mail on a NO ANSWER condition and it will work for you

Need more rings


You have to change the rings from the voice mail server. If you don't know your way around the server, its best to get a local NEC tech although it is fairly simple to navigate. Depends on your skill. Typical default password for the server is NEC

Phone Doesn't Ring Long Enough Before Going To VM


The phone you have can be used on different Avaya phone systems that program differently. It is certainly something that can be changed but you would need to know which system you have first. There is a call-forward no answer timer that send the call to another station or voice mail box etc.. after so many seconds. That is what needs to be changed.

All the manuals are available at www.avaya.com but again, you would need to know which system you have before looking for the manual.

It rings 20 times before voice mail comes on and they can leave a msg.


You are asking questions about your Toshiba phone system and the voice mail system attached. You could have one of several different Toshiba phone systems and several different voice mails.

The system has timers for things like "No answer transfer timer" and also rules for what it does at that point. (transfer to voice mail box, transfer to voice mail branch, transfer to the operator.. etc..) It can get very complicated. Most likely you are just dealing with the no answer transfer timer for your specific phone port but even just changing that can be very complicated. Many Toshiba phone systems need to be programmed from a computer using specific software. If you do not have someone in the company that knows how to make simple changes to the phone system you would need to get a phone system installation company to make the changes. Hopefully you know the company that installed the system??

Going to voicemail


The phone you have can go on several different Norstar phone systems and you can have several different types of voice mail. Your voice mail (and possibly the phone system) needs to have programming changes, not the telephone. Your first step is to determine which Nortel phone system you have and also what model voice mail. You will need manuals for the phone system and voice mail. Hopefully you already have a programming or administration manual for the voice mail. Someone should have gotten this information when the system was first installed but that could have been many years ago.

What happens when you are waiting for that time? Do you hear absolutely nothing? Instead of being sent directly to your voice mail box, it may be sending callers to a voice mail branch where you would normally have a recording "press 1 for this, 2 for that" If there is no recording the system will wait for a response that the caller has no idea of and usually replay the message 3 times before defaulting to your mailbox (in this case a blank message). That is my best guess with the information I have from you so far.

Call will not Transfer to Voice Mail


Typically you want your phone system to ring your phones (say extension 10, 11 and 15) and then if no one answers after so many rings the call is transfered to the port the voice mail is on (let's say it's port 16) The voice mail is set to answer right away but does not "ring" until the call is transfered to it. This way (at 4 rings) if a call comes in on line 1 and you answer after 3 rings but a call comes in on line 2 at the same time, the first ring on line 2 will not make the total = 4 and set off the voice mail. I would guess the port at your voice mail is not set to ring and nothing is set up to transfer calls to your voice mail. Did you set this up yourself? How did you program the phone system?
