    Cannot find how to select the number of rings before the machine answers your incoming calls. Manual does not tell you how to do this.

How do I change the number of rings on this phone?

The KX-TG2313 isn't an answering machine. It will ring until you pick up, an answering machine or voicemail system picks up, or the caller hangs up.

To change the ring count, refer to the documentation for whatever answering machine or voicemail system you have on your phone line. If you require further assistance, please add a comment to this question and identify the answering machine or voicemail system.
