How to change the number of rings on an NEC Dterm80 Phone.

I just called our telephone service company to find out how to change the number of rings on my phone (currently 2, ideally 3 or 4). Apparently, they want a minimum of $120 to come out and change this. Is this completely ridiculous?!? Does anyone know how or if a technically savy person like myself, could do this and not have to incur such a ludicrous charge?

Thank You!!!

All of my NEC Dterms have problems I have been replacing them one by one, with my vendor. Today I called my vendor to ask them for 5 more replacements. (this would now make the last of all my original phones to be replaced) To my surprise they told me I can no longer exchange my phones as the warranty is over. GEEZZZ! NEC needs to take responsibility on this matter as this is clearly a manufacturing defect, (phones are dated 2007)

The answering service does not come on. all it says is the number you are calling is not in service. good-bye.


It sounds like you are trying to call-into a Voice Mail
system managed by your Telephone Service Provider
(whom we used to call "the phone company").

Call your telephone service provider and ask them to
explain how to manage their "voice mail features",
apparently they have changed at least the call-into
phone number.
Good luck!

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.

I want to forward my home phone to my cell phone. Is that possible?


Assuming your telephone service provider offers the call forwarding service, yes. The procedure varies from company to company, but often you dial *72 from the landline, then the number to which you want the calls forwarded. That phone will then ring, and you must answer the call to confirm. To cancel the call forwarding, dial *73 from the landline.

If this doesn't work, contact your telephone service provider for their instructions regarding call forwarding.

How do I reprogram the phone to ring when a new call comes in, default to a certain line, and show caller id when a call comes in.


The answer to the Caller ID question:
Depend on the type of system that the phone is connected to. Late model Partner ACS equipment will display Caller ID info between the first and second rings, provided that the telephone line is plugged into a module that supports Caller ID.

The answers for the other 2 questions are taken directly out of the Partner ACS Programming Guide which is available for free download at Avaya's website.

Ther answer to the incoming call line ringing question:
Again, depends on the system. For the Partner ACS:

1) Press FEATURE 00 at extension 10 or 11.
2) Enter the number of the extension to be programmed for Line Ringing.

The green lights next to the line or pool buttons show the current Line Ringing settings for all

lines or pools assigned to the extension. (If a line or pool is not assigned to a button, the green

light next to that button is off.) The following ringing options can be shown by the green light

next to the line or pool button:

? Immediate Ring - on steady

? Delayed Ring - flashes slowly
? No Ring - flutters quickly

3) Press the line or pool button until the button light shows the correct setting (the setting for the
currently selected line or pool also appears on the display).
4) Continue programming, or exit programming mode.

Line selection:

For incoming calls, the line selection (hunt sequence) is set by the local service provider). For outgoing calls....again....it depends on the system. For the Partner ACS:

1) Press FEAURE 00, SYSTEM PROG, SYSTEM PROG, CENTRAL PROG at extension 10 or 11.
2) Enter the number of the extension to be programmed for Automatic Line Selection.
3) Press **.
4) Press the line, pool, or INTERCOM buttons in the desired order. The valid entries for Automatic
Line Selection
depend upon the type of extension:

? Key Extension: Outside system lines, Left Intercom (the factory setting)

? Pooled Extension: Pool 880 button 1, button 2, Left Intercom, Right Intercom (the factory

setting), Pools 881-883, individual lines


For each button pressed, a display similar to the following appears:

Automatic Line Selection


5) To exit Automatic Line Selection, press **.
6) Press CENTRAL PROG and enter a new extension number, or exit programming mode.

Changing line ringing and line selection are tasks that are normally reserved for the Administrator of the telephone system.

Can I use cordless phone answering machine even if I have voicema


You do not have to cancel the phone company voice mail service. You need to change the number of rings the phone uses to answer the voice mail.

For example, if the telephone company voice mail answers if 4 rings, set the telephone answering machine to answer in 3 rings or less.

Good luck.

On the m9516 what is the fax switch on and off used for?


The Fax Switch
The Fax Switch feature allows you to have two telephone numbers on one incoming line.
There is one telephone number for the line and another telephone number for a Fax Switch peripheral (e.g. fax machine).
To use the Fax Switch, you must subscribe to your telephone company for Distinctive Ringing†. The telephone company will then provide you with an additional telephone number (for your Fax Switch peripheral) which will have a slightly different ring. The 9516 will use the two ring types to determine whether an incoming call is for the telephone or the peripheral. The peripheral should be set to answer after three or more rings.
Note: If Long Distance Ringing† is available in your area, long distance calls will be sent to the Fax Switch peripheral. Also, you cannot use the Fax Switch feature and the Special Greeting feature at the same time. The 9516 must be configured so the Fax Switch peripheral is connected to pins 3 and 4 of jack number 2. See Connecting an optional fax machine or modem on
page 4 for more information.

Note:
If you subscribe to your telephone company for Call Waiting services, your Fax Switch peripheral may lose data or get disconnected if someone calls while your fax is receiving data. We recommend that you do not subscribe to the Call Waiting service from your telephone company if you are using the Fax Switch feature.
