Question about GE 29385GE1 Corded Phone
How can I set the phone to ring six or seven times before it stops?
I have tried to use the menu to set it and it still only rings twice!
SOURCE: Intermittent Ring
Sounds like you are having a problem with the generated ring signal from the cable phone service. An old fashioned Ma-Bell ring signal is a pure 90v AC 30hz pulse. Your cable box needs to generate a simulated ring signal from a DC power supply. I have seen many examples of this fake ring signal not cooperating with specific phones. It's a long shot but your phones MAY have a setting for the phone line(s) (A/B) (Analog/Digital) etc... of you can find a setting dealing with the "CO line", "phone line" etc.. try changing it. I am surprised another phone in the loop will help the ring signal at all. I would think it could only weaken it. Try plugging your phone in question directly into the cable line instead of having the whole house connected. The ring signal may be trying to power too many devices or weakened by something connected to the network. Other than that, you are dealing with the ring signal generated by the equipment and I'm sure it's not adjustable.

the voicemail ring count has to be setup on your phone line thru your voicemail menu,and has nothing to do with the answering machine. if you don't want the answering machine to pickup, just shut it off. follow the prompt's for your voicemail settings, there you'll be able to set the amount of rings you want.
hope this helps.
