Will not answer

I can do everything on the setup but the answering machine will not pick up. I set it to pickup at 4 rings but it doesn't. I have had this machine about 2 years and have never had this problem before.

Check to see if the battery needs to be changed. I did, and it worked for me.

How do I get the answering machine to pick up on 4 rings?


Make sure you've got the machine set to answer calls, and set the number of rings to four. If you need a copy, you may download the manual here.

How do I set the number of rings before the answering machine picks up?


Press and hold the SETUP/ENTER button for two seconds to access the setup mode. Following the language and time/day you can set the rings to answer.

Full details are in the "Changing the Settings" section of the manual (page 10 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one at

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.

Can not set no of rings on old sprint answer machine SP818 please help


Ring Select and Toll Saver

Use Ring Select to choose how many times the line will ring before the
system answers a call. Set for 2, 4 or Toll Saver. When you set the
system for Toll Saver, it answers after four rings when you have no new
messages, and after two rings when you have new messages.

1. Press and hold [SET UP] for about two seconds. The system announces
the current ring selection.

2. Press and release [ANN/SKIP] or [MEMO/REPEAT] until the system
announces your ring selection.

3. Press and release [PLAY/STOP] to exit
-OR-
Press and release [SET UP] to change the Remote Access Code (follow
Steps 2-5 under "Remote Access Code").

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...
