Re: answering machine

My son put the answering machine in "Announcment Only" mode so nobody can leave a message.  How do I fix this so I can enable folks to leave messages.  I've already tried to just re-record greeting, etc.

My dect1560 only rings twice, then the answering machine picks up. I would like for it ring at least four times. How do I fix this?

The Uniden 1560 isn't an answering machine. Please refer to the documentation for whatever answering machine you have connected. If you still have trouble, please repost your question, making sure you specify the make and model of your answering machine.

Hi There my uniden 5.8GHz Digital rings only twice before answer machine starts how do i extent the time of ringing? thanks

For the TRU9380, you can set the number of rings for the answering system from the handset. Press Menu/Clear and select Answ Setup. Then choose the Ring Time submenu. Move the cursor to select the number of rings (Toll Saver, 2, 4 or 6 Times). Press Select to save the setting; you will hear a confirmation tone. (Note: the answering machine must be on.) In Toll Saver, it picks up after 2 rings if you have new messages and after 4 rings, otherwise.

You can find the manual for most Uniden 5.8 GHz phones by looking up your model here: . Check here if you have a different model.

I hope this helps.

Would like to increase number of rings before answering machine comes on.

Setting the Number of Rings (Excerpt from the Uniden Dect 1580 Phone manual

The ring time setting allows you to set the number of rings the caller hears before your answering system plays the outgoing message. You can set the ring time to answer after two, four, or six rings. If you enable the Toll Saver (TS) setting, the answering system picks up after two rings if you have new messages, and after four rings if there are
none. This way, if you make a long distance call to check your messages, you can hang up after the third ring to avoid long distance billing charges.
  1. Press Menu/Select.
  2. Select the Ans. Setup menu, and then the Ring Time submenu.
  3. Move the cursor to select a ring time (Toll Saver, 2 Times, 4 Times, or 6 Times).
  4. Press Menu/Select. You will hear a confirmation tone.

We have a uniden cordless phone with answer machine. we need to retrieve our messages while away how do we call our answer machine to hear messages?

When you configured your telephone you must have come across the Remote Access option, in which you chose a secret remote access code or accepted the one by default. If you don't remember that then you should reconfigure it and choose a secret code different from the factory default.
While you are at it configure the Toll Saver option too. (more about that later)

When you are away you dial your home number and when you telephone invites you to leave amessage, enter your Remote Access code. You will be read various options, among which there is the Hear New Messages option (if there are new messages). After hearing your messages you hang up. and you will be charged by you telco.

With Toll saver On, you telephone answers after 2 rings, if there are new messages, and after 4 rings if there are NO new messages. If your telephone does not answer after the second ring (if you hear the 3rd ring) that means you have no new messages, and you can hang up without being charged by your telco.

Hope it helps.

Remote answer machine turn on

Most Uniden answering machines will turn on remotely after the 12th ring. Call your home phone and just let it ring, ring, ring.

How do I retrieve my voice mail when I'm away from home?

Go to the base unit.
scroll to the answering machine option.
Under there is a setting for your security key.

you can read what's there, or change it to your own two digit code.

when you call in, during the message, enter that two digit code and it'll go into messages. There's a "toll saver" mode so that the machine answers after two rings instead of 4, so that if you call and it rings 3 times, you know there's no new messages.
