Ringer

I have not found a way to change the number of rings when receiving a phone call. It rings twice and goes to voicemail. I'd like a chance to answer.

Please use plain text.

Re: Ringer

 

As a norm, most all carriers have a default 15 seconds of ringtime until the voicemail picks up.

 

If you do need additional ring time before voicemail: 

  1. The simplest method is to call your carrier and request a longer ring time, up to 30 seconds.
  2. If you have a GSM based phone, some have had success by dialing this number from your phone: **61*XXXXXXXXXXX**30#
  • Replace XXXXXXXXXXX with the number of your carrier voicemail center (find it by looking at your Phone Dialer > Options > VoiceMail > Access Number. Put your access number in place of the Xs above.

  • For example, the T-Mobile voice mail access number is 18056377243, and thus the string to dial would be **61*18056377243**30#

  • Replace the 30 at the end of the string with your desired seconds. For most carriers, 30 seconds is the longest allowed.
