Make the phone ring longer

Hi can anyone help, the online help tells me to go to options then work, but work is not an option. My phone rings for about 5 seconds then goes right to voicemail

Re: Make the phone ring longer

The length of time for which your phone will ring is dictated by your carrier, not your phone.


Call your carrier and tell them you want the full 30 seconds (usually the longest allowed by most carriers) of ring time.



I hope that helps you.  Smiley Happy

Re: Make the phone ring longer

If you're on O2 it's really easy to do. You just type a combination of numbers and symbols as shown in this video.
