The TRU9466 isn't an answering machine. The number of rings is controlled by whatever answering machine or voicemail system you have on your phone line. Please refer to the documentation for the answering machine or voicemail system to change the ring count.

If you need further assistance, please reply to this post and specify the answering machine or voicemail system.

Hi Jessica,

I would suggest contacting Uniden rather than AT&T. I included their contact information below as well as 3 issues that may be going on here.

1. Are you getting messages? If not, the voicemail may have set to "Announce Only." This means the Answering system will answer the call, but will not allow callers to leave a message. If so, there may be an LED "A" lit up on your base. You can change this setting in the Answ setup --> record time.

2. Does it occur after a particular number of rings? You can set the voicemail to answer after 2, 4, or 6 rings. This may be the problem.

3. Does the phone ring at all? It is possible the phone is in Silent Mode. You can set silent mode to last anywhere between 1-9 hours or keep it on all the time. If it is set to a particular number of hours, the phone will exit silent mode automatically. If not, you need to hold # to deactivate it. I don't think you can set silent mode to turn on automatically on a schedule, but this is something you could ask Uniden about.

I hope that helps. Good Luck!

How do i change the number of rings before voicemail picks up on a samsung rugby


For all of you that want a real answer here ya go. This isn't something you can change on your phone this has to be changed with your service provider. If you are with AT&T, like I am, then this is the solution for you (link of where I found it below as well). 1. enter *#61*11# and press send/talk on your phone.
2. write down the number your calls are currently forwarded to (usually +1401#######, but not always). this is your voicemail deposit number.
3. decide how long you want the phone to ring in 5 second intervals. the maximum time is 30 seconds. i'd recommend 25 seconds or less, as using 30 may cause you to be billed for a minute of airtime each time someone is forwarded to voicemail.
4. now enter **61*[number from step 2]*11*[number from step 3, use 2 digits]# and press send/talk.

example
voicemail deposit number is +14015551212
you want it to ring for 20 seconds
you would enter **61*+14015551212*11*20# and press send/talk.

if you have trouble with the above procedure, you can always call customer care at 800-331-0500 to change it.
OR QUESTION: How can I adjust the number of times my wireless phone will ring before the caller goes to voicemail? ANSWER: Contact Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500 or dial 611 from your wireless phone to change the amount of time your phone will ring before going to voice mail. The adjustments made by Customer Care are based on the traditional ring heard by the caller, not the unique Ringtone you hear from your phone. I just wanted to add that increasing the ring length to 30 seconds will not cause you to be charged a minute should the caller go to voicemail. This was confirmed by an AT&T technician.

THE ANSWERING SYSTEM WON'T RECORD MESSAGES,ALL MESSAGES GOES INTO POOVIDERS VOICE MAILE, AS IF MY PHONE IS BUSSEY?????? I CHECKED AND RECORD TIME IS NOT SET TO ANNOUNCE ONLY ANS ALL MESSAGES HAVE BEEN...


This happens when the number of rings to answer of the provider voicemail is less than the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. For example: if your provider voicemail rings to answer is set for 3 rings and the answer machine is set for 4 rings then the voicemail answers before the 4th ring, therefore the answer machine will never get a message. I would call the service provider's customer service number and request they increase the rings to answer above the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. If you don't want voicemail to answer any calls(when your line is busy or when the answer machine is turned off) ask your service provider to disable voicemail.

Does not wait for the 4th ring; sends call to verizon voice mail box after the second ring


Sounds like your service provider(Verizon) has your phone line setup to forward to voicemail on no answer after 2 rings. Call your service provider's customer service number and request that the number of rings for forward no answer be increased to at least 5, then your answer machine can receive and answer your calls after 4 rings but if your line is busy callers can leave a message with your Verizon voicemail service. If you don't want Verizon voicemail to answer any of your calls, you could have them disable the voicemail service. When you call the service provider have a recent bill ready because they may request your account number before they will make any changes.

Changing the number of rings to answer on our Model 28112 GE Cordless phone


the voicemail ring count has to be setup on your phone line thru your voicemail menu,and has nothing to do with the answering machine. if you don't want the answering machine to pickup, just shut it off. follow the prompt's for your voicemail settings, there you'll be able to set the amount of rings you want.
hope this helps.
