I can't understand why people writing software for the cell system won't allow users to choose the number of rings before voicemail cuts in. It makes about as much sense as not letting you use your own name on your account :-( How can this be acceptable when many people (myself included) have difficulty picking up the phone, then answering it in 20 seconds or less?
hello, the Rogers Network "IS CAPABLE" of this, but the engineers have chosen to use a script to enable voicemail which is not compatible with this code. they can easily change it, heck i can give them the script to use, but they wont, as to why? i have no idea maybe Social Media reps can chime in since they have more inside info than a non-employee such as myself.
Other networks allow users to key in a code to change the number of rings. Rogers needs to do the same. I don't have a landline and I'm always running and missing calls if the phones not in the same room with me. It's ridiculous.
Try this, it working for me:
Enter *94 . After 3 beeps, enter the number of times you want the phone to
ring before taking messages (0 to 9).
Just got done emailing the support staff and they stated they can't help me the *94 solution doesn't work for me and when I mentioned it to the staff they typed back that it was impossible to change the number of rings prior to voicemail on any cell phone. Just wondering if we could start a petition to get this option available (it sure would be nice for me to get a couple extra rings). Seems kind of wierd to me to limit this feature.
Baffling! Just being sent over to tech support with Rogers and...verified that as of 2014-08-01 still can't do this on Rogers. It's "network defined" at 20 seconds.
I would like controlling voice mail rings added to Rogers cell phones. It is pathetic that we should even have to ask.
