Does anybody know?
You can also do this yourself. This should work on most, if not all, GSM carriers. Dial:
Voicemail number is the number listed under Phone->Options->Call Forwarding.
Time is time in seconds in 5 second increments.
On a lot of networks 30 seconds should be the maximum, as you may get charged for diverted calls to voicemail if it goes longer.
You can also use *#61# to get a status, but depending on the network it will most likely only show you the No Answer diverted number (typically your voice mail number) and not the divert wait time.
I set my divert time manually on both Vodafone and T-Mobile to 25 seconds with no problems. Especially nice on Vodafone, as their default divert time is very short (15 seconds).
Hope this helps.
