If the phone has a dial tone, adjust the ringer loudness (this adjustment is on the bottom of some phones). Also check to see if there is a switch for turning off the ringer--and turn it on.

In some cases, you can't connect more than five phones to a given line or they won't ring properly. If this is your situation, you may have to disconnect one or more phones, or at least turn their ringers off.

How to program call forwarding for Panasonic KX-TG2382 cordless phone


Call forwarding is a service offered by your telephone company, not a feature of your phone. The procedure varies from company to company but with many American telephone companies, you dial *72, wait for a second dial tone, then dial the number to which you want your calls forwarded. That other phone will ring, and you have to answer the call in order to confirm. To cancel call forwarding, dial *73.

If this procedure does not work, contact your telephone company for their instructions regarding call forwarding.

Number of rings uniden 6465


The DCT6465 isn't an answering machine. It will continue to ring until someone picks up or the caller hangs up.

If something else (fax, answering machine, computer, etc) is picking up the call after three rings, a good first step would be to determine the make and model of that device. A good second step would then be to repost your question giving the information from the first step.

Even though my answering machine indicates it is on, noone can leave a message.The response is that the mailbox has not been set up.Can you help? Thank you.I have had this system for quite a while and have...


A "mailbox not set up" message is coming from your telephone line voice mail system, and not from your telephone answeringmachine. What this means is that the voice mail on the phone line is picking up before the answering machine has a chance, and since the mailbox hasn't been set up it can't take any messages. So there are two things you'll need to do.

First, you'll need to set up your voice mail. You may need to contact your telephone service provider for setup instructions since not all systems are the same, but here's how it usually works. From your home phone, call your own number so you reach your voice mail. You should get the message that your mailbox hasn't been set up, and will be prompted for an access code to get to the setup menu. The access code is usually the last four digits of your phone number, and you'll be prompted to change it to something else as part of the setup. Through the setup main menu you can record your greeting and set up other options like the ring count before the voice mail answers. Set it for a number larger than the setting on your telephone answering machine. (I have my answering machine set to 4 rings, and voicemail set to 6.)

Step two is to verify the ring setting on your answering machine. Four rings is a common default setting, but it's adjustable on the phone. Most newer phones have menus that you access from the handset to set change settings, while older models have a switch on the base unit.

Once the mailbox is set up and you have your answering machine set to pick up first, everything will work as you want.

Program phone numbers into memory


My friend, thank you for this information. I understand your frustration at not being able to program Mom's telephone number into your Durabrand so she can speed dial you.

Thank you for this information. At least now I can suspect this is a telephone to be used with a hard wire telephone system, probably in a home, and not a cell telephone.

I searched Durabrand and, well, I still don't know who they are or where they are. I was going to try to get to the instruction book that should have come with your telephone. I couldn't find any Durabrand web site. So, now I share a part of your frustration, but at least you have the telephone in your hand to work with, while I have nothing.

If this is a new device, and you don't have the instruction book, I suggest you return it to the place you bought it and get a model that has instructions with it. Perhaps you should inquire before you leave the store as to programming issues.

The best I can do at this point is offer this web site for you to search: www.archive.org. And, additionally, I will suggest there is, on the telephone, some place where you can get a menu. You will have to search the menu for the speed dial directory. Once you find that, it should be self-explaniatory.

My friend, thank you for using FixYa.com. Please come back often. Remember, good questions get good, quick answers at FixYa.com. Please include important particulars without drowning we volunteer question catchers with unnecessary details.

Thanks
