Since you declined to specify the model of your Uniden system I can only suggest that you select it from the list beginning here to download a copy of the manual. You may have to settle for either four or six instead of five.

SOURCE: How to set the number of rings before the machin answers

Log into your Vonage account and change the number of rings or seconds to intercept for VM. In my Packet8 service, I can set a number of parameters for dual ring, intercept, and/or turn voice mail on and off. The last time I worked on a customer's Vonage we could do the same.

SOURCE: how do you set number of rings before answering

On the side of the base unit there is a switch (looking at the unit, it is the right side). The switch has 3 positions, 2/4/TS. 2 means the unit will answer after 2 rings, 4 after 4 rings, and TS (toll saver) means it will answer after 4 rings if it has no messages waiting and 2 if it does.

The owner's manual can be located at this link - http://www.uniden.com/pdf/EXAI985HSom.pdf

SOURCE: How to change the numbr or rings before...

1) With the phone in standby mode, press the menu/clock key three times.
You hear “Ring time” and the current ring time ([2 ], [ 4], [6 ], [T ] Toll
saver), and it is displayed on the main base. Then you hear the guidance for setting
the ring time.

2) Press the volume/select/ or up or down arrow key until the desired ring time appears.

3) Press the set key to select the new ring time. You hear a confirmation tone, then
the announcement “Ring time” followed by the new ring time. After a few
seconds, the system announces “To set record time, press menu again.”

Need the manual for your phone? You can download/print it here:

I can send a fax without any problem, but am not able to receive. I have set it to send after 3 rings, but the phone rings and then my answering machine comes on. I just turned my answering machine off. ...


Set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the printer does. For example, if you set the answering machine to answer calls after three rings, set the printer to answer calls after five or six rings. Also, make sure the fax line is plugged into the Line port on the back of the printer and the fax settings are correct (phone number, pick-up on rings, etc).

My answering machine (phone line) is picking up when I dial my fax number. How do I set my fax machine up so that it will pick up when I dial the fax number?


Either your fax machine is set to answer on more rings then your answering machine is or you dont have the automatic answer key pushed?

Determine how many rings your answering machine picks up on and then change the number of rings to a lower amount on your fax machine. To change the number of rings before picking up the line, press the "menu" key on the fax machine and use the up and down arrows to scroll until you find the "basic fax set up" or the "advanced set up" areas. I am not sure which one will have the number of rings setting. Try looking in both until you find it.

when you see it press "ok" or "enter" get in and change the amount of rings before answering. call your fax machine to make sure it picks up before your answering machine.

This should solve your problem.

Need to set up phone/fax instead of just fax


I have a HP Officejet J6480 All-In-One and needed the answering machine and fax to be on at the same time.  I called the help line at HP and they said I needed another phone line into the home but I tried this and it worked. 
First I got a different phone number for the fax machine - they do this for no charge at my phone company. This is not another physical line into the home - it is just another phone number with a different ring - it rings 2 fast rings for the fax machine instead of the phones regular one ring. I set the answering machine built into the phone to pick up after 4 rings and I set the fax machine to pick up on 2 rings. Be sure to set it so the fax pick up number of rings are less than the answering machine pick up number of rings.  It worked for me. Hope this works for you too.

Not receiving any faxes but sending


Note: check your equipment for:
Fax machine must be connected to an answer machine

Receiving a fax automatically:
1 Make sure the Fax Auto Answer light is on.
2 To set the number of telephone rings before the printer automatically receives faxes,
Receiving a fax with an answering machine
When a telephone ring is detected, the answering machine picks up the call.
If the printer detects a fax, it receives the fax and disconnects the answering machine.
If the printer does not detect a fax, the answering machine receives the call.
2 Set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the printer does.
For example, if you set the answering machine to answer calls after three rings, set the printer to answer calls
after five rings.
3 To set the number of telephone rings before the printer automatically receives faxes.

Check the basic settings for your printer to see if they offer 'manual' pickup of the line instead of only the number of rings. I've had the same problem years ago and had to set the fax machine for 6 rings, answering machine for 4 to allow me time to pick up the phone in case I was present. You should be able to find complementary settings with your two devices.

Number of rings before answering system goes on


You can adjust the Answer Delay time by going to Menu then DTAD. Adjust the Answer Delay under this menu... 6 seconds per one ring.

If you have auto attendant set up to answer for you in a multiline system, set that delay accordingly. That will be the first system to pick up, You should set up one auto attendant for every voice line coming into your phones.
