Since my home phone has an answering machine, that won't work. And I'd like to ditch it anyway.
Increase OutGoing Ring Count
Is ther a way to increas the out going ring count. Currently it is 7 rings or 40 seconds. Some people I know cant get to the phone in that small time and have their answering machine set longer give them time to get to the phone so it never answeres.
Is this a setting in the Android phone, a SIM card settion or a system setting.r
Thanks of reaching out to the Community Forums!
This can't be done on the caller's end, no. As whether it goes to voicemail or not is controlled by the receiver as part of their system.
As mentioned on previous posts in this thread, receiving call rings are fixed for Wireless.
Home Phone (landline) however still have an option as they are a different system using *94.
But this won't be done by you, it will be done by the folks you are referring to that you call. As they control their ring settings. Just an FYI, *94 for Home Phone is for Rogers Home Phone, as all * numbers are dependant on carriers.
Hope this sheds some light for you.
Just a bit of history. Back in the day before network based answering services and widespread use of cell phones, there were answering machines with a cassette tape recorder. You could set the number of rings before it answered with a recording ("went to voicemail"). Four rings was the customary choice because then the caller could decide at 3 rings that the person was out or not answering, so they didn't have to pay to leave a message if they were calling long distance. If you were on the receiving end, you could also decide between 3 and 4 rings if you wanted to answer if you had call display. Four rings is actually a very long time.
Please please, work on this feature. Its ridiculas that a user can't set some paramter for how long it will take for an incomming caller to be sent to voicemail!!!
Ditch your landline and get a bluetooth compatible home phone with multiple stations as it connects to your cell phone via bluetooth. Battery drains faster on the cell, but you dont need to carry a phone around.
Rogers now offers a way to change the # of rings before going to Rogers's voicemail answering service. You would have to speak to Rogers to do this as it can not be done from the consumer end. however if your using Rogers home phone and have your OWN answering machine (instead of the Rogers voicemail service), you would need to change the settings in your OWN answering machine, and Rogers can not assist you with that.
No. It's NOT an Android phone or SIM setting.
It's a ROGERS setting.....it's ARBITRARY....and it's no where NEAR 40 seconds!
It's like 15-18 seconds.
WRONG! There is NO WAY to change the number of rings on your Rogers cell phone before it goes to voicemail. PERIOD!!
