The following works for the Uniden models
D1680, D1481, and similar phones:

press [menu]
scroll to "Ans. Setup"
press [select]
scroll to "Ring Time"
press [select]
scroll to the ring-count you want to use
( 2, 4, 6 rings or 'Toll Saver' )
press [select] (chirp) press [END]

Other models, check your manual. The model number

SOURCE: phone rings two rings then answers need to know

I recently changed this for a friend, and we went into the menu, and scrolled to the ring function, where I think we had 2 or 4 rings for an option.
If you have your manual on the phones, it details the steps.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Re phone BT6500, how does one increase the number of rings before it goes to answerphone?


Hi
I give below the step by step procedure for changing the number of rings the phone will sound.
1. Select Menu, Answer Phone is displayed, press
Select.
2. Press until Settings is displayed, press Select.
3. Press to highlight either Ans. & record or
Answer only and press Select.
4. Answer delay is displayed, use or to display
the number of rings you want (0-9 rings or Time
saver) and select Save. Saved will be displayed.
Be aware though that the number of rings needs to be less than your ansaphone service, for BT 1571 this is 5 rings, although more may be possible if you can get BT to change their 1571 for your line.
For more information about your phone you can download a pdf format manual from here:
https://www.shop.bt.com/content/uni2/documentation/8h3j/bt6500_user_guide.pdf
This can be saved to hard disk for future reference.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

How do you change the number of rings before answering machine cut on---model 2-9866A


Press and hold the SET button to enter the change mode. After time and day you can change the rings to answer.

Full details are in the "Changing the Settings" section of the manual (page 7 in my copy). If you need the manual, you can download one at

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.

My hp 1040 will not pick up fax after the fifth ring answering machine picks after forth ring can't tell the between phone call or a fax used to before changed date on answering machine fax quite working


Set rings to answer
You can select the number of rings that will occur before the fax answers an incoming call. If you are using your machine as both a telephone and a fax machine, we suggest you set the ring count to at least 4 to give you time to answer.
TIP: HP 1050 Fax: The Toll Saver function for the Digital Message Center interacts with Rings to Answer. See Toll Saver on page 40. If you have the HP 1050 Fax and have Toll Saver turned on, set the Rings to Answer to 2.
1. Press Menu repeatedly until BASIC FAX displays and press Start/Enter.
Rings to Answer will display.
2. Press Start/Enter.
3. Enter the number of rings you want (2-7) and press Start/Enter.
The HP Fax rings the set number of times and then answers. It then produces a different sounding ring to alert you to which type of call is incoming.
• The additional ring may occur once for a fax call
• The additional ring occurs 5 times for a voice call. After the 5 additional rings, the answering machine will answer.

Our phones only ring 4 rings before going to message bank. We have a telstra wall connection, and 3 panasonic KX-TG1840AL


Hi,

You can change the number of times the phone rings before the unit answers calls.
You can select 2 to 7 rings, or “Auto”.

“Auto”: The unit answers after 2 rings when new messages have been recorded, and
after 5 rings 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 messages when the phone rings for the 3rd time. You can then hang up without being charged for the call.

1 Press OK.
Select Answer System, then press >(Right navigation button).
2 Select Settings, then press >.
3 Select Number of Rings, then press >.
4 Select the desired setting, then press >.
5 Press End button

Change number of rings to answer on iRC3170 fax


I believe, you just have to open the doors on the control pannel. It will show you more funcation of the fax. There should be a botton that say's "Data Entery" press it once and the display changes. Next you use the arrow bottons on the control pannel to move in that mode. Scroll down to Fax Setting and press the OK botton and scroll some more till you see number of rings and change it from 5 to 2 rings. Then press OK or Set, the press Stop/Rest twice and you should be done. It's alot hard to explain then doing it. It's called panich botton pushing..... Good luck
