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:
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*numsec# that apparentyl works for other carriers.
So I was wondering if this was just a Rogers restriction?
