There is one line in my office that will not transfer to voicemail when a call is unanswered. The phone will ring indefinitely. However, if the phone is set to forward to voicemail automatically (feature 984) the calls transfer to the appropriate mailbox as they do on all the other lines. How do I fix this?

Re: Unanswered calls will not go to voicemail
Ok, do you know how to get into system programming?
If you do:
-> first dial FEATURE 985 this will give you the DN(Extn) for the voicemail
-> get into programming
-> TERMINALS&SETS enter and put in the extn that is giving you issues
-> then under CAPABILITIES look for FWD NO ANSWER and put in the DN of the voicemail you saw with the Feature 985
-> hit next for the number of rings you want it to ring before going to voicemail
-> hit next and you can now RLS to back out of programming.

Sounds like your system lost its programming so now the voicemail ports are just like extensions, they are ringing and picking up. And since the voicemail doesn't know where the phone systemn is, it just transfers all calls to the lowest numbered extension (10)
Per the Sprint support site at http://search.sprint.com/inquiraapp/ui.jsp?ui_mode=answer&prior_transaction_id=2&iq_action=5&answer_id=33554455&highlight_info=6293864,0,6&turl=http%3A%2F%2Fsupport.sprint.com%2Fsupport%2Farticle%2FSet_the_number_of_rings_for_voicemail%2Fcase-ev207663-20090626-084943#__highlight&id16=voice+mail : "A call will roll to your voicemail if unanswered after 23 seconds. This setting can't be changed. However, on your Sprint phone, you can change your ring tone to one that reduces or increases the number of rings you hear before an incoming call rolls to voicemail. For details about setting up and changing your ring tones, refer to the user guide for your phone." If this is not the problem with your phone I suggest you call their support line:
Call *2 from your cellular phone or 888-211-4727 (Sprint phones) or 800-639-6111 (Nextel phones) They may ask you to perform troubleshooting tasks, so it would be best to call from a phone other than the one you need help with.
Yes Music can be played from your system during transfer. Simple connect any radio or cd player to the RCA jack located on your KSU (main box) For setting the time in voicemail log into box 999 with sec code 999997 or just 997 and press 8 for admin features. More guides and ACTUAL manuals can be found here http://guides.idacomusa.com/
Press the FWD/DND button, then scroll through the menu button until the screen shows "FWD No Answer time". Then use the number key pad to change from 000 seconds to 010 seconds (or longer if required). Then exit out of the menu.
THere are two answers to you question, depending on certain options and conditions.
First, where is the voice mail and where is the call waiting coming from?
1. If Voice Mail (VM) is located in the central office and you have a destination for call forward BUSY/NO ANSWER it will go to CO VM.
2. If Voice Mail on premise (Partner Mail), and you have CF BUSY/NO ANSWER set on your phone, it will go to voice mail....IF the call waiting is coming from another line. The CF and ring count is set in Partner system programming.
3. If you have call waiting coming on the same phone line and don't have CO VM, then you have no voice mail.
My CO codes for VM are 72# for Call Forwarding and *92 for CF Busy.
