Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

Could you tell me the model number of the phone?
Are you using the panasonic answering machine, or voicemail?

Electronics Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 5 months ago

Okay if you are using actual voicemail service, provided by the phone company, then there would be no adjustment on the phone itself. The panasonic cannot control the voicemail, nor could any other make/model of phone equipment. What you'll need to do is dial into the voicemail system, as you normally do to listen to your messages, and listen there for a prompt such as "press 4 for personal greetings" for example (sometimes have to hit * first) and then listen there for the prompt to change the rings. Failing that you can call the phone co and have them adjust it for you.
