    What model phone so you have? This question is posted under a GE model which is not an answering machine, and has no programming for ring count.

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.

SOURCE: changing the number of rings to answer on our Model 28112 GE Cordless phone

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.

Connecting my printer to my phone


Hi Lillian,
You may have a ring ground on your line, start by removing all your phone equipments then try to call again, if it works, means one of your phones cause the problem, you may have to do this diagnostic yourself before calling your telecommunication supplier, cause if the the technicien do it, they may charge you some fees for that.
Second possibility, try to check if your fax machine is holding the line after 2 rings, go to the menu and search for ring count.
Hope that i helped you !

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.

How do I increase the rings before message answers?


Setting the Number of Rings (Excerpt from the Uniden Dect 1580 Phone manual

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.
thanks

How do i inrease the number of rings


Don't know if this will work, but try the 983 feature, pw 1020000 (or 120000, or 10020000, depending on your extension numbering). Access the Mailbox menu. "Show" thru the menu until you get to "forward to" ###, then next. This should ask for delay. (to est time in seconds, multiply the number of rings by 6)

Ring times


I know the time before transfer is programmed by the installer, but you MAY be able to set that CALL TRANSFER TIME in your particular mailbox. Listen to ALL the menu prompts.
