Changing programming on a Partner system is done on either ext 10 or 11. At one of those ext's press the feature key and "00"
next press the left hand intercom twice
the display should say system programming
enter in "#206"
the display should say group call distrib and Group:
enter 7.
the dislay will then say group call distrib 7 line:
enter the line number you wish to program in 2 digit format i.e. line 1 is 01 and so forth
the display should say group call distrib 7 L01 and 1 assigned
enter 2 on the dialpad (not assigned)
enter feature "00" when finished
hope that helps

The CS5111-2 isn't an answering machine. If you have a separate answering machine connected to your phone line, consult its documentation. If you're subscribed to a voicemail system offered by your phone company, contact them for information.

This happens when the number of rings to answer of the provider voicemail is less than the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. For example: if your provider voicemail rings to answer is set for 3 rings and the answer machine is set for 4 rings then the voicemail answers before the 4th ring, therefore the answer machine will never get a message. I would call the service provider's customer service number and request they increase the rings to answer above the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. If you don't want voicemail to answer any calls(when your line is busy or when the answer machine is turned off) ask your service provider to disable voicemail.

When I receive a call and am not at home, the operator says I am not available instead of going to the answering machine. I am getting no messages.


Sounds like you have voicemail from your service provider and it might need to be activated before allowing messages to be recorded . If you do have voicemail on your number and it is set to answer after 3 rings and your answer machine is set to answer after 4 rings, then the caller will never get to your answer machine. Voicemail is often automatically added by service providers, especially if you have recently changed service providers or your service provider has upgraded their telephone switch equipment. I suggest you call your service provider's customer service number and ask them if your telephone line has voicemail and if you don't want to use it, have them disable it. If the service provider says you do not have voicemail then report the problem as a trouble on your telephone line.

Does not wait for the 4th ring; sends call to verizon voice mail box after the second ring


Sounds like your service provider(Verizon) has your phone line setup to forward to voicemail on no answer after 2 rings. Call your service provider's customer service number and request that the number of rings for forward no answer be increased to at least 5, then your answer machine can receive and answer your calls after 4 rings but if your line is busy callers can leave a message with your Verizon voicemail service. If you don't want Verizon voicemail to answer any of your calls, you could have them disable the voicemail service. When you call the service provider have a recent bill ready because they may request your account number before they will make any changes.

Rings 15 times before going to voicemail.


To change the number of rings enter Feature 983, if your system has 2 digit intercom #s your password is 120000 if your system has 3 digit intercom #s your password is 1020000. once you have entered the password you will see 3 selections you can make .use the three soft keys under the display and select AA (auto Attendant).
The 3 soft key selections GRTG, TABLE, and LINES
Press the LINES soft key
Enter the line number on the line you want to change ringing on (probably Line 1) and press OK
Press the TABLE soft key then the RINGS soft key
Press the CHNG soft key and enter in the amount of rings you wantand press OK
Press the NEXT key to go to the next line
Repeat the procedure for the remaining lines
Press Rls when finished

The only way to fix it without your vendor getting envolved is to try to reboot your voicemail server/phone switch(depending on the model of your system it can be inside of your switch or separate computer).
Your voicemail is down right now

Unanswered calls will not go to voicemail


Ok, do you know how to get into system programming?

If you do:
-> first dial FEATURE 985 this will give you the DN(Extn) for the voicemail
-> get into programming
-> TERMINALS&SETS enter and put in the extn that is giving you issues
-> then under CAPABILITIES look for FWD NO ANSWER and put in the DN of the voicemail you saw with the Feature 985
-> hit next for the number of rings you want it to ring before going to voicemail
-> hit next and you can now RLS to back out of programming.

Voila, that set will now goto voicemail.
