Is there a way to pick how many rings before the voice mail picks up?
Press *78. Result: You will hear a stutter, then a regular dial tone.
Enter the number of rings between 2 and 9. The default is 4 rings. After entering the number of rings, you will hear two fast busy signals letting you know your changes are complete.After listening for the confirmation tone, hang up.
UNLESS you live in one of these areas. If so, you need to call Cox to change the number of rings;
