I don't think you can - looking at the instructions, it appears to have a 2 ings, 4 rings or toll save option (I think TS means the machine picks up immediately).

Picksup after two rings


You may need to go into settings and change the answering machine to answer on whatever ring you want it to. Some answering machines have an external switch that allow you to select 2, 4 or 6 rings etc.... Others need to be programmed in what is called a menu option. Your user manual can help guide you to change this setting

I cannot find my manual for AT&T 1710 answering machine. I want to change my answer response rings from 3or 4 rings to more. Can you help me?


The 1710 only has three options: two rings, four rings, and toll saver. There's a switch on the back that controls this.

The toll saver answers on the second ring if there are new messages, on the fourth when there aren't. This allows you to call in from a remote phone. If there are messages waiting, it'll answer on the second ring. If it rings at least three times, there are no new messages and you can hang up before you get charged for the call.

Unfortunately there are no settings for more than four rings. Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

I am trying to turn my ringer on. I was trying to change the number of rings from 4 to 3 and got all messed up Robert


The AT&T 1717 can be set to 2, 4 or tollsaver rings. Tollsaver means it will answer in 4 rings if their are no new messages and will answer in 2 rings when their is a new message. This is a convenience when checking for new messages when away from home or office. Cannot be set to answer in 3 rings. Press and hold the SETUP button until you hear the ring option announced, press ANNC/SKIP button or MEMO/REPEAT button until the ring option you want is announced. Press PLAY/STOP button to exit.

I lost the manual, how do I set the day and time, and rings to answer. It picks up after 4 rings, can I set it for more rings? Thank you


I have this answering machine...

To set the day and time press the "REPEAT" button and hold it in. It will say something like "Time not set." and if you keep holding it it will say, "Monday." Now release the "REPEAT" button and use the "ON/OFF" button to cycle through the days. When it says the correct day, press and releasethe "REPEAT" button. Then it will go on to set the clock and you're done.

To adjust the rings, there is a slide switch on the top where the cords plug in. You can switch it to 2, 4 or TS (Toll Saver). Toll Saver generally lets it ring for about 5 rings before answering.

Would like more than 4 rings until machine answers


TS is the Toll Saver Option.Sometimes this will let it ring many times, before answering.
4 rings is the maximum setting. You might try the TS, then try calling to see if that helps.

Hangs up after 2 seconds into recording message


SETTING THE RINGS TO ANSWER
This setting allows you to select the number of rings before the answering system answers a call.

At idle status, hold down the volume "UP" button over two seconds to enter the ring times setting of answering. The answering system announces, "ring time two" (the default is 2).

To change the rings to answer, press and release the "PREVIOUS" button (<<) or the "NEXT" button (>>) and the answering system announces a number such as "2, 1, toll save, 9...” OR "2, 3, 4...", if you select the toll save and the digit LED light shows a “γ”, the answering system announces “toll save”.

After choosing a number, press the “PLAY/STOP” button one time to store the rings to answer, and the answering system confirms the setting and returns to the idle status.

NOTE: when the machine fails to operate properly, just unplug the power for 10 seconds, and redo the settings.

Change # of ringer on an AT&T 1717 digital answering machine


I am also trying to change the number of rings before the answering machines toll saver activates.

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...
