Switch to voicemail

My phone switches calls into voicemail after only a short number of rings.  I often can't get to it in time to answer it.  How do I set it so that it rings longer before sending the caller into voicemail?  Thanks.

Re: Switch to voicemail

If you seach this thread for voicemail, there has been a solution posted.  Something about checking and changing a GSM string.  My question is - where/how do I do this??

 

thanks

Re: Switch to voicemail

OK - figured this out.  I just dialed the string and it fixed it.

 

Search this board for "voicemail" .  There are several responses from "Tanzim" but look for the response from Jeremy Kitchens - that's where I finally figured it out.

Re: Switch to voicemail

Check the follwoing - 

 

GSM string: *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.
