Number of rings before 'missed call'

I use Nomorobo to help block calls. Although I realize my phone will ring once if Nomorobo blocks the call, it also puts a 'missed call' on my phone which I have to erase. Is there any option to not log a missed call until after a designated number of rings? If so, I could set to 1 ring and not have to delete all those Nomorobo blocked 'missed calls'.

That would depend on your phone instrument. It is your phone that is displaying those missed calls, not your account. I don’t have any such option on any of my phones, I’m not sure if any phone does.

We can address your inquiry about changing the number of rings before a call is missed, carole45.


We recommend looking for that option in your phone's manual, as this is not an account feature, like sandblaster mentioned.


If you don't have a manual (and it's an AT&T-branded phone), you can look it up on our website.


If you need help with anything else, let us know. Thanks for visiting the AT&T Community Forums.

@ATTHelp the OP isn't talking about number of rings to voicemail or an answering machine. They want to stop the one ring from Nomorobo so their phone doesn't show a missed call. Which would be a Nomorobo feature if it can be done, which I'm sure it can't.
