there's a way to fix this ;
To change the number of rings before the call transfers to the voicemail system, follow these steps (cingular):
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!
remember tu use the + right before your voicemail number. Do not input more than 30 seconds because you could have some problems of calls never reaching voice mail. I have done performed this procedure succesfully on my company's wireless lines. I've had all of them configured for 30 seconds for the past 2 years.
Just type it in and hit send/call and you should get some sort of confirmation message. Then try it. I believe the default setting is 15 seconds.
I hope this helps
