Incoming call ring time

Hi all

Can anyone tell me how to extend the ring time on my 8900 before it goes to voicemail please? Also, sometimes the ringtone only sounds once before going silent...any clues?

Re: Incoming call ring time

Check the following -
Dial: *61*[Phone Number]*11*[Time]#
In place of phone number put in your voice mail box number (call your carrier to know that) and in place of time put any value i.e. 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30. These values are seconds after which your calls will be diverted or forwarded to voice mail box.

Setting a higher value will make calls longer to ring and then divert.
This string is applicable GSM carriers only.


if the above mentioned steps doesn't work then call your carrier support service.

Re: Incoming call ring time

Failing that, your carrier has the ability to change your ring time aswell
