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

Ring 3 times then goes to Voicemail


Does the phone actually ring 3 times. I was having the same problem I was informed that it was not even going to my phone. When I had this same problem T_Mobile could not fix the problem using the 3 g network. If you shut off the 3g feature your problem will go away
