Limited number of rings before BT Answer works

I am trying to increase my set number of rings from seven, which is too few to get to the phone sometimes! BT haven't been helpful on their live chat and told me this is impossible without incurring extra costs and upgrading to Call Minder. I don't see why I should incur extra costs. Does anyone have any ideas please?

You can't alter the number the number of rings on BT Answer...

If you want to keep 1571 and increase the number of rings you'd have to pay for Call Minder, which I think can be set to 15 rings.....

If you don't want to pay for it you'd have to live with it or get rid all together and buy an answering machine that you can have more rings on.....

On my BT 7600 phone you can program  up to 10 rings before the answerphone kicks in,

and I believe most stand alone answer machines, but not BT answer 1571, not sure about call minder.

 

Edit.
