SOURCE: I can hear messages being left but they won't play back

I had the same problem.
For some silly reason, there is an option of not leaving messages. You will see "AO" in the upper right-hand corner of the phone. This is for Announce Only.
To take it off:
Press/hold SET UP
Listen until you hear "Selected Announcement is A."
Press skip/repeat to save
(The other option is going to be the Announce Only which you don't want, so you can play around with the setting to make sure it's the right one.)

Call yourself to be sure you did it right.

You should now have numbers in the upper right-hand corner instead of AO.

How do I increase the rings before message answers?


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.

Toll saver


Toll Saver is a feature that changes when the phone answers if you have voice mail messages. If you have no messages, the phone answers after the 4th ring. If you have messages it answers after the 2nd.

If you call in and you hear a 3rd ring, hang up.

How do I activate Toll Saver on my EXA18580 series phone?


Toll Saver is the most confusing option with little or no information about it anywhere.

It overrerides the number of rings settings so that the answering voice mail cuts in after 4 rings or 3 if there are new messages. If you want to set rings to 6 or 7 or more, or have a consistent number of rings before voice mail cuts in, you have to turn off "Toll Saver".

From Telus:

Turn on "Toll Saver": *97 and hang up.

Turn off "Toll Saver": *96 and hang up.

Number of rings


Looks like 6 is the Max, according to the Manual.

Setting the Ring Time
Ring Time 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), the answering system
picks up after two rings if you have new messages and after four rings if there are
none.
1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the Ring Time
submenu (see "Entering the Menu Option" on
page 16).
2) Press volume up/down to select a Ring Time (Toll
Saver, 2 Times, 4 Times, or 6 Times).
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.

Toll saver is a feature where you can call the phone yourself, if there are messages it wil answer in 2 rings, if not it'll answer in 4 rings. The idea is to hang up on the 3rd ring and save the LD changes.

Hope that fixed Ya...
