TS stands for "Toll Saver"
It will ring 4 times if there are no new messages waiting, it will ring 2 times if there are new messages waiting.

This has two effects:

1) If you are calling home to check your messages, you can wait 2 rings. If there are new messages to check, then it answers immediately. If you make it to 3 rings, you know there are no new messages and you can hang up before you are billed for your call. This was more useful when you would use a pay phone or hotel phone to make a long distance call home. With a pay phone you would get your "quarter" back as long as there were no messages. With cell phones,it isn't as useful.

2) If you not home (which is implied by the fact that there are new messages waiting), it answers faster, so people calling you don't have to wait as long. This could also be viewed as a security risk... it tells your callers whether you are home or not.

How do you set number of rings before answering machine picks up


On the side of the base unit there is a switch (looking at the unit, it is the right side). The switch has 3 positions, 2/4/TS. 2 means the unit will answer after 2 rings, 4 after 4 rings, and TS (toll saver) means it will answer after 4 rings if it has no messages waiting and 2 if it does.

The owner's manual can be located at this link - http://www.uniden.com/pdf/EXAI985HSom.pdf

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.

Machine not answering. new battery. lights on with 0 messages.


When the power went out it may have set the machine to its default setting, "answer function off". Press the "On/Off" button to check for sure. A battery really wouldn't help in this matter because it's only there for backup; when the power goes out the batter will save your settings, outgoing and incoming messages. Perhaps when the power went out you lost your outgoing message, and now, when people call, they don't realize that that they are supposed to leave a message. One more thing you can check is the switch on the side of the phone which tells the machine to answer after 2 or 4 rings.

Bellsouth 2006c


The bellsouth model 2006c has been discontinued and you can no longer order a manual for it. But there is hope! If you call 214-758-2500 press 3 and the enter the model number you will be given a list of options to choose from to help you with your problems. DO NOT SELECT THE OPTION TO ODRER A MANUAL! The service will tell you that the machine as been discontinued and then hang up and you will have to call back and start all over again. I hope this was some help for you.
