Default Change number of rings?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey. I couldn't find an answer to this and i'm not sure how to go about doing it.

What I want to do, is be able to set the amount of rings my callers get before it will go to my voicemail.

Do I do this on the Bold? Do I have to go through my carrier? How do i go about doing this.

If you want MORE time until the voice mail picks up...

Increase amount of rings before voicemail - BlackBerryFAQ

Which will give you more time... time = rings.

If you set a 5 second ring... you are getting about three rings now 5*3+15 seconds normal ringtime before voice mail. You can extend that time to 30.

If you set a 12 sec ringtone, you will get 2 full rings... so the number of rings is determined by your ringtone length.

Well here's the thing. I'm using CallerTrax, if you don't know what that is, it plays music for the person calling me. The problem is i want the song to play longer then it does so i need to increase my "rings/time".

I'll take a look at that FAQ, thanks.

That means the person you are calling doesn't need to answer the phone as soon... you can't control how quickly the other party answers. But you can make it play longer as mentioned.

No no sanders. Its not about me calling them, its about them calling me.



When people phone me, instead od them hearing a ring ring, they hear music until I pick up, they hand up or it goes to my voicemail.



I want the time it takes for my voicemail to kick in to be longer.

Well, the FAQ from the first post in this thread is the answer you want. It doesn't control how many rings...it controls (in seconds) the amount of time before voicemail kicks in. Did you try the link to the FAQ from the first response in this thread? Did that fix you up?

I read through the FAQ and i tried to do the dial the number with the amount of seconds you want trick. I don't think it worked, seems the same to me. So tomorrow i'm gonna phone up Rogers and see if they will do it for me.
