Re: length of ring

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!


Depending on your carrier, you may be able to dial a specific string and alter the length of the ring (sorry, I can't recall the string). But, I typically find it's easiest to contact the carrier and ask them to extend it -- it's not a function of the BB, it is a function of the carrier.


Good luck!
