VM timeout and creating 1-touch for VM??

VM timeout and creating 1-touch for VM??

VM timeout and creating 1-touch for VM??

Anyone have any insight on how to accomplish any of these tasks?

- Need to lengthen the amount of time that VM prompts you for your password before it kicks you out.


- Need to increase the number of wrong password attempts from 1 to any other number.


- Need a way to create a 1-touch button that will dial VM, enter the users password, and enter a "1" to retreive messages. i tried "*2<ext>,,<password>#,1" - no luck, goes to general mailbox.

Any help appreciated!

RE: VM timeout and creating 1-touch for VM??

you can increase the number of challenges but keep in mind that in doing so you will increase the number of times that the deafult AA will play...

depending upon which OS your are running go to NetSet/NBX Messaging/and now click on the default Menu 500/5000 and click Modify.  Now change the number of prompt repeats to 1,2, or 3 then click ok and then ACTIVATE the default Menu.

This increases the password attempts and the number of times that the default Menu will play to callers.
