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.

How do you change the number of rings before machine turns on?


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. To set the number of rings to answer for normal operation press <SET UP> button and hold for 2 seconds, machine will announce current ring setting. Press and release <ANNC/SKIP> or <MEMO/REPEAT> until you hear the number of rings you want. Press and release <PLAY/STOP> to exit. The ring settings available are 2, 4, and toll saver. When set to toll saver machine will answer after 4 rings when there are no new messages and after two rings when is anew message.

How to set number of rings


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 "ANNC/SKIP" or "MEMO/REPEAT"
until the system announces your ring
selection.
3 Press and release "Play/Stop" to exit

Erasing recorded calls from remote location.


It takes a lot of patience; however pursue an AT&T telephone number that is manned by a live person; then follow a trail of phone numbers until one of them connects with a helpfull live person who is familiar with the problem and who then furnishes a very simple solution.
