number of rings before message picks up

Right now our phone messager picks up on the 4th ring.  How can I make it pick up on the 6th instead?

Hi boone,

You can change the number of rings before your home phone goes to voicemail by completing the following steps:

To change the number of rings before calls are forwarded to your Voicemail:

1. Pick up your receiver and dial * 9 4
2. After the tone, enter the desired number of rings (from 2-9) before unanswered calls are directed to your Voicemail. You will hear two beeps to confirm you have successfully made the change.

Hope this helps.

@Pauly, you can change the number of rings for Rogers Home Phone.  For Wireless devices, the default is 4 rings or 20 seconds.

Is there any 'Rogers' answers as to why they don't upgrade this lame feature?

Re: number of rings before message picks up

Can anybody help me?

my voice mail message ("please leave a message") goes off after only 3 rings, and it is hard sometimes to reach for the phone in time. How do I change the number of rings (say 6 or 7) before the voicemail message starts?

 

Thanks in advance

Re: number of rings before message picks up

The phone currently rings 3 times and then goes to a recorded message. How to I increase/decrease the # of rings before the caller goes to a recorded message?

Re: number of rings before message picks up

I just found the answer: press *94 , then press 2-9 for the # of desired rings before it goes to your recorded message.
