    model # is uniden 5.8 GHZ cordless DXA-18580-3. I cannot figure out how to shorten the amount of rings when someone calls for the answering machine to pick up.Right now it rings 7 or 8 times before the machine will pick up. I thought there would be a place to adjust it on the base of the phone but I do not see anything. It probably is very simple but I have tried about everything.I received this phone with no manual. Thanks for your help!

How do I change the number of rings before answering machine picks up Vtech cs6619


The CS6619 isn't an answering machine. It will ring until you answer, an answering machine picks up, or the caller hangs up. To change the ring count on an answering machine, please refer to the documentation for that machine. If you require further assistance, please add a comment to this question and identify the answering machine.

How do you change the amount of rings on the uniden dect1363 6.0 GHz


The Uniden DECT 1363 isn't an answering machine. It will continue to ring until someone picks up, a separate answering machine or voicemail system picks up, or the caller hangs up. You need to refer to the documentation for your answering machine or voicemail system.

If you require further assistance, please repost your question specifying the make and model of your answering machine or voicemail system.

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.

How do you disable the recording after the 10th ring. I want to disable the answering machine all together.


If you want to disable your whole answering machine, then you need to take that up with your phone company. Otherwise, if you want to shorten the amount of rings it takes to get to the answering machine you can go into your options menu on your phone. You can also change your answering machine. Hope that helped! ~~RJ~~

Setting jx200 to manual and have ansewring machine connected.


I normaly set all my fax machines on fax only,but I change my incomming ring count to more than 7 rings,but less than 11 rings,this allow you to have time to answer you call before it goes to fax.But you can set it for manual.
Press the "receive mode/resolution button untill it show on the display-manual,fax only or ansering.
Yes you can use the fax and answering machine when you are out of the office.
Set you answering machine to pick up after one ring,the message must not be longer than 15 sec.
If you leave set your receive mode to answering mode

Hope this will help you

Fax and answring machine on same line


I assume you have distinctive ringing since both numbers are on the same line. According to the manufacturer's specs, the fax machine supports distinctive ringing. Set it up for the ring pattern assigned to the fax number and to answer on the first ring. Then it will pick up right away when someone calls the fax machine, and the answering machine will pick up the other number.

Changing the amount of rings


Pick the phone up earlier it will stop ringing......:-)

To set the number of rings-to-answer
To set or change the number of rings-to-answer, use the following steps:
1. On the all-in-one control panel, press Menu.
2. Use the < or the > button to select Fax setup, and then press tick
3. Use the < or the > button to select Fax Recv. setup, and then press tick
4. Use the < or the > button to select Rings to answer, and then press tick
5. Use the alphanumeric buttons to enter the number of rings-to-answer, and then press tick


But I still think picking up the phone earlier would be easier
