As a norm, most all carriers have a default 15 seconds of ringtime until the voicemail picks up. That can be extended to 30 seconds.
If you do need additional ring time before voicemail, The simplest method is to call your carrier and request a longer ring time, up to 30 seconds.
There are a couple of options for extracting and viewing data from a the backup files.
1. The IPD Parse macro is designed to read a Blackberry IPD file and create reports in MSWord or MSExcel. It is free, and you can find out more here: https://sites.google.com/site/ipdparse/home
For .bbb backup files, use this macro to extract seven "primary" IPD files (Address Book, Calendar, SMS Messages, Tasks, Memos, PIN Messages and Phone Call Logs)

These IPD files can subsequently be used as inputs to the other macro, IPD Parse, to produce reports.
2. Another options is MagicBerry from MenaStep... which extract from a backup IPD or BBB file, split IPD files, etc. http://menastep.com/pages/magicberry.php
3. Another IPD and BBB file utility is BlackBerry Backup Extractor, and is available for PC and Mac, and can be found here: http://www.blackberryconverter.com/ There is a free and paid version.
