Question about Uniden Cordless Phone
I have an answering system problem with my Uniden DECT2188-5. Ring time is set to Toll Saver, thus two rings if there is a message and four if not. That means if there is no message when I call in, I hang up right after three rings. The problem is that every time I do that, the system records a short, blank message; i.e., it's not cutting off after the third ring. The question is, why? I have a digital cable phone line (Bresnan) and they say the line and connection to the cable modem are great, hence the problem has to be with the phone answering system (this did not happen when I had a separate ATT phone and Code-a-Phone answering machine, up to about 2 months ago). Short of going to a straight 4-ring setting, any ideas about how to get it working right? Thanks.
One thing to try and take note of is when the message does pick up on the "two ring" message present part do you hear on your side two full rings before the pick up?
It may be that the primary ring starts on the home side as does happen sometimes with VOIP service. If you are only hearing 1 or 1 1/2 rings before the message picks up then you might try hanging up after the second full ring thus knowing no messages are present and it should overcome your problem.
