How can i limit the number of rings before the answering machine kicks in on my panasonic 6.0 phone

Answering system settings Number of rings before the unit answers calls You can change the number of times the phone rings "Ring count" before the unit answers calls. You can select 2 to 7 rings, or "Toll saver". The default setting is "4". "Toll saver": The unit's answering system answers at the end of the 2nd ring when new messages have been recorded, or at the end of the 4th ring when there are no new messages. If you call your phone from outside to listen to new messages , you will know that there are no new messages when the phone rings for the 3rd time.

To many rings for the machine to pick up

Unfortunately this machine does not have the facility to change the number of rings before it answers. The following extract from the manual describes how the number of rings is controlled:

Toll Saver Facility
Your unit has a Toll Saver Facility. This means your unit will answer call on the 4th rings if there are no new messages, or on the 2nd ring if new messages have been record. Therefore when you are calling your unit remotely you will know by the 3rd ring if there are no new messages. So you can hang up saving the cost of the call.

You can download the manual from here:

Exai918

You're not going to like this much. This model only has 2 rings, 4 rings and TOLL SAVER which answers on the 2nd ring if you have messages and the 4th ring if you don't.

A lot of the Vtech models adjust from 2-7.

Here's the manual, check out page 28 (32 pdf). http://www.uniden.com/pdf/EXAI918om.pdf

Number of rings

Looks like 6 is the Max, according to the Manual.

Setting the Ring Time
Ring Time allows you to set the number of rings the caller hears before your
answering system plays the outgoing message. You can set the ring time to answer
after two, four, or six rings. If you enable the Toll Saver (TS), the answering system
picks up after two rings if you have new messages and after four rings if there are
none.
1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the Ring Time
submenu (see "Entering the Menu Option" on
page 16).
2) Press volume up/down to select a Ring Time (Toll
Saver, 2 Times, 4 Times, or 6 Times).
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.

Toll saver is a feature where you can call the phone yourself, if there are messages it wil answer in 2 rings, if not it'll answer in 4 rings. The idea is to hang up on the 3rd ring and save the LD changes.

Hope that fixed Ya...
