Question about Olympia OL5815 Cordless Phone

Open Question

Long distance receiving call only rings twice

Whenever I receive long distance call, we only hear the extended ring twice (one long ring, followed by two short rings). My phone service is by Rogers and we don't use the answering machine on the Olympia OL5815 cordless phones as we rely on the phone service's voicemail service.

Just now I did some fiddling around with the unit and I had formed these combinations:

Combination 1:
Announce Only: ON
Answer: OFF
Message Alert: OFF
Base Ringer: OFF
Announcement: 2

Combination 2:
Announce Only: OFF
Answer: ON
Message Alert: OFF
Base Ringer: OFF
Announcement: 2

Combination 3:
Announce Only: OFF
Answer: ON
Message Alert: OFF
Base Ringer: OFF
Announcement: 1

Combination 4:
Announce Only: OFF
Answer: ON
Message Alert: ON
Base Ringer: OFF
Announcement: 1

Combination 5:
Announce Only: OFF
Answer: OFF
Message Alert: OFF
Base Ringer: OFF
Announcement: 1

Combination 6:
Announce Only: ON
Answer: OFF
Message Alert: OFF
Base Ringer: OFF
Announcement: 2

I've tried everything, but nothing comes to avail. It was working before, but I couldn't remember which settings I had it on. To make matters worse, I've lost the original manual that came with the phone (I bought that **** from a store in Toronto called Factory Direct years ago....lol).

Any suggestions?

How can I get the telephone on my Brother Fax T96 to work?


Step by step information at the link below.
Brother Fax T96
The F/T Mode is used to allow the fax machine and the telephones to share the same telephone line. When a call comes in, the fax machine and all extension telephones on that line will ring according to the number of rings you have set for the Ring Delay.
When the Ring Delay is completed, the fax machine will answer the call and determine if it is a fax call or a telephone (voice) call.
The fax machine can determine this by the signal it is receiving on the telephone line. If someone is sending a fax automatically , the sending fax machine will transmit a fax tone (a series of beeps every 3 seconds).
If your fax machine hears these tones, it will receive the fax.

If the fax machine does not hear any fax tones, it assumes it is a telephone (voice) call and will begin ringing the F/T ring tones (double ring) for the length of time you selected for the F/T Ring Time. These tones will only ring on the fax machine's handset (extension or external phones will not ring). At the end of the F/T ring time the fax machine will go into the receive mode in order to receive a manual fax.
(If the call was a voice call and was not answered, the caller will hear the fax receive tones also).
  • If you answer the call before the fax machine(during the ring delay period) and determine it is a fax, you can transfer the fax to the fax machine for receiving.

  • If you answer the call on an "extension" phone and hear a beep every 3 seconds (automatic fax) or silence (manual fax), press *51 or *91 for New Zealand (remote activation code) on the telephone keypad, wait to hear the fax machine turn on (chirping sounds) and then hang up.

  • If you answer on the handset of the fax machine and hear a beep every 3 seconds or silence, press the Fax Start or Start/Copy key on the control panel of the fax machine and then hang up the handset.

  • If you answer a call on an "extension" phone during the F/T Ring Time, you will hear the F/T ring tones.
    To release the call from the fax machine, press #51 or #91 for New Zealand (remote deactivation code) on the telephone keypad and you can speak to the calling party.

  • If you pick up the handset of the fax machine during the F/T ring time, you may talk to the calling party immediately.

When I receive a call it rings only twice my end altho the caller hears about 10 rings. I often cannot get to the phone in time to answer and would like to increase the number of rings to 10.


Your profile may be set to a vibrate and tone setting. Therefore, you wouldnt hear the vibrating.

Go to Profiles then scroll to Advanced, select the profile that you are using. Scroll down and select Phone.

Where it says Out of the Holster, change the option to Tone and the Volume to Medium or High.

2 second ring time then to message bank - need to know how to extend


Your cell phone carrier controls that. To you it only goes off twice you should find that the caller hears 4-5 rings before going to voice mail. Either way call "611" and talk to the tech department to see if they can help. Call from a different phone.
