Default Incoming call length

Please Login to Remove!

Blackberry Virgin here.

I'm pretty tech savvy and its all set up and working - few things to iron out with email (As I don't quite get how to make it work effectivley for the way my email works - i.e. forwarded from ISP to outlook on desktop - meaning that there is nothing for BB to view / push left on ISP server (unless its first / when PC is off and not 'pulling) also most of my junk mail is dealt with by outlook (rather than ISP) so when BB does push its getting all the Junk that Outlook would bin on delivery)

Anyway...more immediate irritating and surley simple? - but after 2 evenings of searching and an 11 year old having a look. Can't find how to alter ring length of incoming calls..which answer after 3 secs currently meaning almost all call goto voice mail....can't beleive I can't find the way to do this

You need the carrier to fix this. It is on their end

BB connects to BIS servers. BIS servers can do some filtering, but they dont work that well.

anythign your BIS server sees (IE, your entire inbox) will get pushed to the ISP.

if your not getting email, its because the BIS server isitn connecting to your ISP, or your ISP is blocking them.

if your getting too much spam, youll need to talk to your ISP about what filtering they can put in place for you.

Else, do soemthing responcoible and get a gmail acct

or atleast use that for your spam (it works wonders... just forward all your ISP email to your gmail it will fiter it and send it back to your ISP)

Part of this is carrier controlled.

assuming your BB is active on their network, here is the GSM function code you will need

**61*[VM]**[sec]#send

where[vm] is your voicemail number and

[sec] is the number of seconds you want (there is a MAX value per carrier... no more than 30 seconds i would assume)

if this doesnt work, youll need to call your carrier (like i said, this depends on the carrier.. sometimes the GSM code will work, other times it wont.)

gave that a try to no avail.

Why if most other phones allow a choice of secs before going to voicemail on the hand set is it so complicated on a BB
