Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

I'm Greg and will do my best to assist you today.

Sorry to hear of any issue you are having with your phones.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:

1) The FULL Make & Model Number of the phone system you are working with? If this is a cordless system, that model should be printed on a sticker on the bottom or back of the MAIN base.

2) What phone service provider (phone company) you have for this phone line?

Thanks

Hi again,

Please understand that it takes a few moments for your messages to get to me and read them.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Not for $26. I was suppose to have a free trial.

NOTE: ANY additional "offers" you may see are sent by the site - and not by me. So please read ALL the details of those offers before accepting them (or not).

Back to the question:

Can you VERIFY that this is a Vtech system, similar (or the same) as the image I have attached?

Thanks

Expert:  Greg A. replied 4 months ago.

Another question for you:

Do you currently have a DIFFERENT phone (or answering system) attached to this phone line?

Thanks

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
That is the vtech phone I have, and, NO, I only have 1 answering system- Att.net
Expert:  Greg A. replied 4 months ago.

OK - very good.

To answer your questions:

Q: " is there a built in answer component in the phone?"

A: NO - there is NO "built-in" answering system in this particular Vtech model.

Q: "How do I set my phone to ring only 4 times before the answer machine picks up?"

For this question, may I ask if you have "Online access" to your AT&T answering service?

Thanks

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
No, I have waited too long for any answer, and wasted $5.00, for a supposed free trial with no answers.Your experts are in the business to collect $26. I am a customer expecting service. It didn't happen.
