My Answering Machine Won't Pick Up Calls

Try this if your answering machine does not pick up incoming calls.


INSTRUCTIONS & INFO
  1. Set your answering machine to pick up calls in fewer than five (5) rings.

    Note: This ensures that your answering machine will pick up calls before network voicemail.
