Changing the number of rings to answer on our Model 28112 GE Cordless phone

I have attempted to change the rings but I believe the instructions talk about changing the number of rings on the answering machine only and we do not use the answering machine that came with our set. Right now it only rings 3 rings before it goes to our Voicemail--I would like to have it ring 5 or 6 rings. How can I make this happen?

    My phone currently rings 3 times before it goes to the phone answering machine. I would like to change to have it ring 6 times. I had a voicemail feature with my local phone provider, but have since had it disabled. Thanks for any help you can give me.

    at times, not always, our cordless phone displays "no service", not "no line". The phone is ringing but can't answer it. Changing the the base to another outlet corrects it. What's wrong?

The voicemail ring count has to be setup on your phone line thru your voicemail menu,and has nothing to do with the answering machine. if you don't want the answering machine to pickup, just shut it off. follow the prompt's for your voicemail settings, there you'll be able to set the amount of rings you want.
hope this helps.

My phone goes to voicemail after 3 rings. how do i change that to 5 rings?


do you have the phone with an answering machine like:

http://www.generalmanual.com/Telephones/GE-25932EE1-Cordless-5-8GHz-Edge-Phone.htm

Or are you using a voice mail system on your phone line? If so, contact the voicemail company or your phone company for information on how to change the number of rings before the forward.

Good luck!

I would like to increase the number of rings. It currently rings 4 times. Is it possible to change the number of rings


The 25839 isn't an answering machine. If you have a separate answering machine connected to your phone line, consult its documentation. If you subscribe to a voicemail system offered by your phone company, contact them for instructions.

I want to change the nombers of the rings to get start the answering machin


These are the instructions from the manual, which I found here:

http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/GE/21028GE3-A-_E


RING SELECT (FOR ANSWERING MACHINE)

This feature lets you select the number of times you want to phone to ring
before the answering system answers a call.

1. Make sure your phone is OFF (not in talk mode).
2. Press the MUTE/PROG button to go to the main menu.
3. Press CID/VOL (up or down) button to scroll to HANDSET SETUP.
4. Press MUTE/PROG button to confirm.
5. Press the CID/VOL (up or down) button to scroll to the RING SELECT menu.
6. Press MUTE/PROG button to enter the menu. RING SELECT 3 4 5 6 TS shows in the display.
7. Use the CID/VOL (up or down) button to scroll to the your selection. The default setting is 5.
8. Press the MUTE/PROG button to confirm. You will hear a confirmation tone and the new setting shows in the display.

NOTE: If you select Toll Saver (TS) the unit answers after the 3rd ring if there
are NEW messages, OR the unit answers after the 5th ring if there are NO new
messages. This allows user to access their answerer from another location and
then hang up after 4 rings to save long distance charges.

Can I use cordless phone answering machine even if I have voicema


You do not have to cancel the phone company voice mail service. You need to change the number of rings the phone uses to answer the voice mail.

For example, if the telephone company voice mail answers if 4 rings, set the telephone answering machine to answer in 3 rings or less.

Good luck.
