Default Short ring cycle

lads, my pearl only rings twice before deferring to call forward rules, or in my case, nothing at all. How do I set up the BB to ring until the caller hangs up?

cheers,
matt

Only the carrier can control the ring length. A simple phone call to them and they can extend it in 10 second intervals. I had them change mine from 20 to 30 seconds and it really helped.

I hope this helps!

We are on Vodafone and have done the following

In phone mode

Type *#104# press dial this will give you your mailbox number

then Type **61*+44yourmailboxnumber*11*30# press dial

30 seconds is the maximum ring length

yourmailbox number must be in international dial format therefore drop the first zero and then add +44
