    Yes, I have the same problem of not being able to set the number of rings I want before the answering machine comes on (GE 29868A).



    I have unplugged and plugged it back into the electric outlet. I've called the phone company. Since, I lost that capability after a technician fixed the outage/outside line problem on my telephone about a month ago.

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.

We have the answering machine set to 4 rings. When people call, the machine picks up on the 4th ring, it beeps, then cuts off. No recorded message. No message is recorded, the call is disconnected. What do we do?
send me email.

Just as the other answers that were left...you just have to press the skip button. Just make sure that you press announce on the cradle...not on the phone...then when you hear the voice in Spanish just press and HOLD the skip button until it changes to English. Good Luck

on the second manual here on page 9 you find the settings to answer. I think they have used the same shortcuts for these models. They write ;

Can I use cordless phone answering machine even if I have voicema


You do not have to cancel the phone company voice mail service. You need to change the number of rings the phone uses to answer the voice mail.

For example, if the telephone company voice mail answers if 4 rings, set the telephone answering machine to answer in 3 rings or less.

Good luck.
