Default newbie question again -- any way to increase the number of rings??

Please Login to Remove!

my BB Bold 9000 only rings like 4-5 seconds when receiving a phone call. is there a way to increase the length of the ringing tone when receiving a call?

I checked all the options under "Normal Profile". There is options for you to change volume or something like that, but no way to increase the length. damn it...please help!

Check this:

Increase amount of rings before voicemail - BlackBerryFAQ

If that doesn't work, call your carrier and have them increase the amount of rings before it goes to voicemail.

I recently noticed that my callers only hear 2 rings before the call goes to VM. No wonder I was missing so many calls (couldn't get to them in time). Signed on to Tmobile to chat with a specialist to see if it could be increased, but was queued at 367!!!!

Just wanted to say thank you jsconyers, that link you provided did the trick. Increased to 30sec, which is about 6 rings (roughly 5sec=1ring).
