Extend number of rings before answerphone kicks in

Hi,

My mum has just bought a BT6500, which comes with an answerphone.

 

She wants to know how to change the number of times it rings before it goes to answer phone. She's a bit slow on her feet and wants to increase it from the standard 4 rings to 8. This isnt covered in the (brief) manual, nor can I find it online here.

 

Does anyone know how to set this up?

 

Thanks,

 

Jac

Re: Extend number of rings before answerphone kicks in

I Have the BT8500 and I have just succeeded in extending the number of rings as follows:-

 

  Menu, Select - Answerphone, Select - scroll down to settings, select - Ans. & record,select.  

 

This should bring you to  Answer delay - arrow left or right to add/minus number of rings.

 

Hope this works for you!
