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.

How i can set up only 3 rings before going to answering machine?


Use the RINGS TO ANSWER switch on the back of the base to set the number of times you want the phone to ring before the answering system answers the call. You may choose 3 rings, 5 rings, or TOLL SAVER (TS).

Change the answer machine rings to answer number to less than the fax number of rings to answer or increase the number of rings to answer on the fax machine. Would need exact model number of phone system to give more detail on programming steps. Info should be in manuals of phone system and fax machine.

How do you set the number of times the phone rings before the machine picks up on my GE answering machine? I can not find the manual


Hi kcee
I think I did find the manual here :
http://157.254.235.130/public/347A8329-0001 (Rev. 1 E&S).pdf
and here :
http://phone.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/ge_appliances/29827.html

you can find more types here :
http://phone.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/ge_appliances/ge_appliances_answering_machine_product_list.html


You can find General Electric home page here:
http://www.geappliances.com/electronics/

I suggest you contact GE on the link to get the manual and understanding your answer machine with a reply :

FOR Thomson Consumer Electronics :
you get there homepage here :
http://www.home-electronics.net/

I did try to find the manual for your specific phone, but could only find these answer machines here (previous and next model number) :
http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/IB/29871GE3_IB.pdf


http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/IB/29869GE2_IB.pdf

source :
http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/user-manuals.asp

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 ;

### This feature is used to set the unit to answer a call after
a specific number of rings.
The unit announces the rings to answer. To change,
press NEXT or PREVIOUS. To set and go on to the next
item, press SET.
1. Press and release NEXT or PREVIOUS until the unit

For the GE model you find these features on page 17

One last thing, you can contact Thomson Consumer Electronics for more specific answer or get the manual here :
http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/contact.asp
they have also a phone :
"For customer service assistance, dial 1.800.448.0329. Our hours of operation are Monday thru Friday, 8am to 8pm Eastern, Saturday and Sunday 10am to 7pm Eastern."

Hope that helps
IF NOT then try to return here
Have a nice time over there

I can't seem to get the security code entered.  It won't change.  None of the numbers will change when I try to set it up.
