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...

When the AT&T 1717 digital answering machine is powered off it will answer an incoming call after 10 rings, it will announce "machine is off" then beep twice, dial 0 to turn it on. The machine is now ready to answer calls. This 10 ring setting is factory set and cannot be modified.

Phone is plugged in to a fax machine and the phone rings too many times before answering machine picks up so the fax machine takes over. How can I reduce the number of rings so that the answering machine...


Change the answer machine rings to answer number to less than the fax number of rings to answer or increase the number of rings to answer on the fax machine. Would need exact model number of phone system to give more detail on programming steps. Info should be in manuals of phone system and fax machine.

Setting number of rings before answering machine kicks in


Probably a cordless right?If it is,there should be a function button on the handset.Without pressing to dial out,press or hold down the function button.If there is a directional type button,you may have to press down or keep pressing the function button to cycle through the options.Once you find the ring set,it will probably require the directional button up or down to change the number of rings.Function could also be on the base,but it's usually on the handset.You may have to play around with a couple other buttons if there is no directional button but most seem to have the directional button these days. Good luck!
