Altering the ring tone length

I love the phone but the one thing that's driving me mad is the length of time the phone rings before going to voicemail.

My Storm only rings for ten seconds, regardless of the ring tone, before voicemail cuts in. I'm lucky if i can look to see who the caller is, let alone answer it! 

Is this normal? (hope not). How can it be changed?

I'll have to answer my own question i'm afraid! I rang my network to check with them and they gave me the code to alter the ring length. It's now set to 30 seconds.

Re: Altering the ring tone length

The code given to me by Vodafone (UK) was *61*+447836121121*10*30#. 

The 10 & 30 must be a reference for the time change i asked for ( extend the ring tone from 10 to 30 seconds). Whether this code will work on any other network is anyone's guess. 

Anyone else with this problem would probably be safer ringing their own network and asking them to change it for them or get the appropriate code.

Re: Re: Altering the ring tone length

I am having the same trouble. How exactly did you fix this? Is it a general code and who do I have to call. It is a tad annoying.

Re: Re: Altering the ring tone length

The "code" varies from carrier to carrier, and usually works correctly for GSM carriers.

I input the code now my phone doesn't ring at all. I need to be reminded of the benefits of this phone right now. Thanks for the posts. Off to tackle yet another issue.

Are you on Voda as the previous user? Different carrier use different SMS service center numbers.
