Default 7290 voicemail: how to adjust # of rings?

Please Login to Remove!

The voicemail picks up after only three rings. I'm constantly missing calls, but can't figure out how to adjust this. Thanks in advance

I think thats something your service provider controls. So call them up, and tell then to extend the time.

It's a system wide setting...

Perhaps your're not in a great enough service range? Or your device isn't ringing correctly...

The carrier sets the number of rings before going to voicemail. Unfortunately, most GSM providers don't allow the user to change this.

On Bell Mobility, I can dial "*94x" with 'x' representing the number of rings I'd prefer to have before voicemail answers.

Here are my notes on adjusting your number of rings on Cingular. I think there's a counterpart for T-Mobile but I don't recall the details.

Cingular Voicemail Ring Setting

On your phone dial:

*61*+1XXXXXXXXXX*11*tt#

Where XXXXXXXXXX is your market's VM number and tt is the time in seconds you want the phone to ring for. I believe valid range is 1-30!

Example for NYC market with longest ringtime:

*61*+19084630020*11*30#

Just type it in and hit send/call and you should get some sort of confirmation message.

5 second increments. 30 second max.
