Question about BellSouth Digital Answering System 2006C Digital Answering Machine
Is there a way to get the BellSouth Answering Machine 1188 to ring more than 4 times before the machine picks up? Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Donna

TS stands for "Toll Saver"
It will ring 4 times if there are no new messages waiting, it will ring 2 times if there are new messages waiting.
This has two effects:
1) If you are calling home to check your messages, you can wait 2 rings. If there are new messages to check, then it answers immediately. If you make it to 3 rings, you know there are no new messages and you can hang up before you are billed for your call. This was more useful when you would use a pay phone or hotel phone to make a long distance call home. With a pay phone you would get your "quarter" back as long as there were no messages. With cell phones,it isn't as useful.
2) If you not home (which is implied by the fact that there are new messages waiting), it answers faster, so people calling you don't have to wait as long. This could also be viewed as a security risk... it tells your callers whether you are home or not.

Hi Diana - To record your outgoing message, hold down your ogm button ( outgoing message) for two seconds and it will ask you to record a message. To play back your message, just push the same button and it will play your message. If you don't like it just do it again. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks and have a good day.

I have model no. 1188 bellsouth digital answering machine. If you have to leave a message, the message I recorded is no longer there, there is a generic message saying please record your message. How do I go back and record my voice with my message. I cannot find my original manual.

Press and hold the "clock" button. You will hear a beep and the display will begin flashing a number which represents the day of the week. 1=sun, 2=mon, and so on. Press the left and right arrow buttons to scroll through. After choosing the day, press the "clock" button again to set the hour. It will start with 12 am and go through 11pm. Press "clock" again after setting the hour to set the minute.You will be able to scroll through 0-59 to choose the minute. When finished, press the "clock" button again to exit the time setting feature.
