I have a Samsung GT-B5310R. Is there anyway I can set it to ring more than 4 times before going to voice mail?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Sorry its not possible
The number of rings before the voicemail picked up is set by the switch and its fixed to 20 seconds / 4 rings.
cant be adjusted by your handset, sorry
The number of rings (or more specifically the amount of time your phone rings before going to voicemail) cannot be controlled by you, as Pauly correctly stated, but it can be controlled by Rogers. Most carriers, including Rogers, will allow a ringtone to be active for up to 30 seconds. Unfortunately, the default time limit is usually set to 15 seconds.
No problem, just call Rogers and ask them to extend your ringtone time to 30 seconds.
I went into my local Rogers store today and they were not able to help me. I guess I will try the phone option. I sometimes need more than 30 seconds to answer my phone. Especially when I left it in my jacket and I can hear it, but I can't find it fast enough.
I can confirm that even if you call in to Rogers, the time/amount of rings cannot be changed. As mentioned it is a set time period that cannot be increased.
I concede on this point. I knew it was a network-controlled feature as opposed to being in the user's control but apparently it cannot be changed, even by the network (Rogers) itself. In response to my inquiry, Rogers had this to say:
Yeah unfortunately, i wish it could be changed.. i would set DCF=30 if I could.
other networks allow you to change the time (rings) setting - solution is to switch from rogers - three rings is not long enough.
Thereis a widely posted solution *61*1....................................*11*numse
So I was wondering if this was just a Rogers restriction?
