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.

Usually you dial your phone number and put in a passcode setup in the answering machine. It may be written on the bottom or in the instruction manual.

Would like more than 4 rings until machine answers


TS is the Toll Saver Option.Sometimes this will let it ring many times, before answering.
4 rings is the maximum setting. You might try the TS, then try calling to see if that helps.

Change time & day


Does your system have a time/code button? If it does, hold the button down for about 5 or so seconds until you hear the date, then use your arrow keys up above & change to appropriate date & time.

Press the time/code button once. You will hear "TWELVE"
Press the << or >> button until you hear the correct hour.

Press the << or >> button if you need to change to AM.

To record an outgoing message, press and hold the ogm button. Release the ogm button and start to record after you hear "PLEASE RECORD AFTER THE TONE" followed by a beep tone. When finished, press the ogm button.

Make sure you put a battery in the answering machine so you don't lose these settings if the power goes out!
