Maybe a silly question

Hi,  I love my Pearl but have this one problem.   It will only ring 4 times before going to voice mail.  I understand I may have to change the voice mail options but how do I do this???  Can anyone help, please?   Often by the time I have fished my phone out of my bag the call has gone to voice mail Smiley Sad  Thanks Sue

Re: Maybe a silly question

Sounds like you already have the BlackBerry set to its maximum. Contact your cellular carrier to increase the number of rings before going to voicemail.

Re: Maybe a silly question

Check the follwoing - 


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/forwarded to voice mail. Setting a higher value will meet your query.


This string is applicable GSM carriers only.

Re: Maybe a silly question

Is it common for all the BlackBerry users?
