  1. Press [MENU # 2 1 1].
  2. Press the arrow up ▲ or down ▼ button to select the desired ring count. The ring count before the unit answers can be set at 2 to 7 rings, or “Toll saver”. The default setting is “4”.
  3. Press [SAVE].
  4. Press [OFF ].

When “Toll saver” is selected, the unit’s answering system answers at the end of 2nd ring when new messages have been recorded, or at the end of the 5th ring when there are no new messages. If you call your phone from outside to listen to new messages, you know that there are no new messages when the phone rings for the 3rd time. You can then hang up without being charged for the call.
