Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

Extending Ring Time

Hi. Is there any way to extend the ring time before the phone goes to voice mail? My phone rings only for a few seconds, and even if I quickly take it out of bag, the call is already forwarded to voice mail. I also have the same problem by the alarm in the phone. It gives two short rings and then turns off. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

You can try the steps below:

A) The simplest method is to call your carrier and request a longer ring time, up to 30 seconds.
B) If you have a GSM based phone, some have had success by dialing this number from your phone: **61*XXXXXXXXXXX**30#

  • Replace XXXXXXXXXXX with the number of your carrier voice mail center (find it by looking at your Phone Dialer > Options > VoiceMail > Access Number. Put your access number in place of the Xs above.
For example, the T-Mobile voice mail access number is 18056377243, and thus the string to dial would be **61*18056377243**30#
  • Replace the 30 at the end of the string with your desired seconds. For most carriers, 30 seconds is the longest allowed.
  • NOTE: Has been reported this doesn't work for Rogers (8700r) . 6/17/2005. Morser

I have the panasonic phone but when someone called me after 3 rings it goes on answering machine. i wanted to make it longer at least after 5 ring. please help me with any suggestion.


You can set your ring time to 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 seconds.

  • Tap **61*121*11* into your phone as if you're making a call.
  • Next enter a time between 5 and 30 (the number of seconds in multiples of 5)
  • Press # and then the call button. Don't put the phone to your ear - just look at the display until you see a message confirming your ring time has been set.
For example, **61*121*11*25# followed by the call button would set your ring time to 25 seconds.

How to extend the rintone length on my binatone 2210 it is far too short. when it rings I can't get to in time it only rings about 3 times, and the person thinks i am not there.


When it stops ringing, the caller goes to your voice mail, right?

If so, then you need to contact your phone company and have them change your "Ring Cycle" -- that's the number of rings before the voice mail system picks up.

Some phone companies have a way for you to do this yourself from their website, other require that you call up the customer service line. Either way, the thing you want to adjust is your voice mail ring cycle.

KX-T7633 Voicemail rings


The Voice Mail feature is set by your phone company, not by the phone. Typically the phone company will set it for 20 seconds, or approximately 4 rings. This is called your voice mail "Ring Cycle"

Call them up (the customer service number should be on your phone bill) and they should be able to increase or decrease your ring cycle for you at no charge.

2 second ring time then to message bank - need to know how to extend


Your cell phone carrier controls that. To you it only goes off twice you should find that the caller hears 4-5 rings before going to voice mail. Either way call "611" and talk to the tech department to see if they can help. Call from a different phone.

Problem with the number of rings


Remove the voicemail or extend ring time
don.t know is this code works world wide but you can try otherwise ask the provider to lengthen the ring time to 30 secs
**
then enter country code IE 61 for australia
* then vmail number IE 321 for optus
**30#
so your code should look something like this
**61*321**30#
then hit call.
remember the 61 and the 321 will vary on country and provider
