I cannot find a manual for your machine but I will attempt as most machines are fairly similar.If there is a clock button,press and hold it down.It will open up the menu.If there is a button on each side of the playback button,that should allow you to change the current setting for what the menu is on.To cycle through the options,press the clock button again and again.When you are finished,it will automatically read back most of the info.If these buttons are arranged different,please let me know what all of your buttons are labeled and I should be able to figure it out.Good luck,Greg

On the uniden TRU9466 is there any way to increase the number of rings before it goes into voicemail?


The TRU9466 isn't an answering machine. The number of rings is controlled by whatever answering machine or voicemail system you have on your phone line. Please refer to the documentation for the answering machine or voicemail system to change the ring count.

If you need further assistance, please reply to this post and specify the answering machine or voicemail system.

THE ANSWERING SYSTEM WON'T RECORD MESSAGES,ALL MESSAGES GOES INTO POOVIDERS VOICE MAILE, AS IF MY PHONE IS BUSSEY?????? I CHECKED AND RECORD TIME IS NOT SET TO ANNOUNCE ONLY ANS ALL MESSAGES HAVE BEEN...


This happens when the number of rings to answer of the provider voicemail is less than the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. For example: if your provider voicemail rings to answer is set for 3 rings and the answer machine is set for 4 rings then the voicemail answers before the 4th ring, therefore the answer machine will never get a message. I would call the service provider's customer service number and request they increase the rings to answer above the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. If you don't want voicemail to answer any calls(when your line is busy or when the answer machine is turned off) ask your service provider to disable voicemail.

How do I increase the rings before message answers?


Setting the Number of Rings (Excerpt from the Uniden Dect 1580 Phone manual

The ring time setting 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) setting, the answering system picks up after two rings if you have new messages, and after four rings if there are
none. This way, if you make a long distance call to check your messages, you can hang up after the third ring to avoid long distance billing charges.

  1. Press Menu/Select.
  2. Select the Ans. Setup menu, and then the Ring Time submenu.
  3. Move the cursor to select a ring time (Toll Saver, 2 Times, 4 Times, or 6 Times).
  4. Press Menu/Select. You will hear a confirmation tone.
thanks

Increase number of phone rings


If you have subscribed to Bell Answer, just lift the receiver and dial *94. After the beeps, enter the number of rings you want before it answers. You will hear a double beep, then hang up. Your rings will have been changed to the number you selected. Repeat as required.

How do I increase the time between the phone ringing and the answerphone coming on?


It really depends on the type of machine you have. Some have a sliding indicator on the side or bottom that is for the number of rings depending on where the slide is. New models can be programed from the handset by going to menu, then initial settings, Answering, then number of rings. Type the number of rings at the prompt and hit save. That is how my new machine works.

Increase numbers of ring


If the machine won't go past 4 rings (which it should somewhere in the answering machine settings menu) you could always change your greeting to a message that tells the caller to wait a few more moments for you to answer, while you get to the phone....
