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 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 and START with KX-TG. NOTE: The model MAY also be printed on the box or package that came with the system.
2) What phone service provider (phone company) you have for this phone line?
Hi again and thanks for that information.
OK - let me send you a couple of things, which is a link to the FULL manual for your system - in electronic (PDF) format - and a link to a video on how to set the number of rings.
Back soon with those resources.
Here is the manual link:
Here is a video that shows how to set the number of rings for MOST Panasonic cordless systems. NOTE: The handset may not match your system perfectly, but the steps are the same.

To turn ON the answering system, the easiest step is to press the ANSWER ON/OFF button - on the MAIN base.
Please give those steps a try and let me know your results.
Thanks, ***** *****
Can you tell me WHAT HAPPENED - when you TRY to set the number of rings - and then place a TEST CALL to your system (from an outside phone)?
OK - that DOES sound like your service provider's "Voicemail system" is picking up the call.
Either that OR there is a DIFFERENT system connected in the house - that is picking up the call. So do you have ANY OTHER devices attached to this same phone line (phone number) - in ANY other rooms or living areas (such as a garage or basement)?
OK - that would be the next correct step - assuming that it IS their voicemail system taking the calls.
If you need contact information for Century Link, I have links to that below.
