My G1 only rings 3 times then goes straight to voicemail. Does anyone know how to change the lenght of time it rings before diverting? I have been through the Call settings and Sound settings. Have I missed something?
Also, I wish T-Mobile would hurry up with the development of the new Bluetooth Application so we can sent Items via Bluetooth.
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

You need to contact your carrier, ask customer service if they will change the ring time. The number of rings before vaoicemail is not controlled by the phone it is set at the cell phone switching office so they have to do it. Some carriers will some won't.
You don't "Pay" to listen to voicemail unless you have a prepaid account. It does however come out of your minutes. Anytime you are using your phone you are using minutes. Now, as far as someone leaving a voice mail on your number, it does use minutes as well, but each rate plan comes with 500 minutes for voicemail (you can see this on your bill).
Hi there, it is possible that you have the G1 set into "always Forward" state, which means when receiving calls the phone will forward the caller to your voicemail.
To Check and change these settings. goto the G1's Home screen, Click the "Menu" button, and then click on "Call settings". Then from here click on "Call Forwarding".
From here, the top setting should say "Always Forward" If this is set to Enabled, click on it and select Disable. This should now allow you to receive calls correctly ! if the Always forward function was disabled already, i would suggest calling T-Mobiles Customer support line to see if they have a remedy to this situation !
Start >> Settings >> Phone -Choose the Services tab -Disconnect data connection if needed -Choose Call Forwarding and press Get Settings... -Change "Forward After" time from 20 seconds to whatever you want
I have a solution for you, your mobile service provider, ie Vodafone, should have a code to extend the length of the ringer before it will divert to voicemail.
For anyone using Vodafone it is:-
The last two digits are the amount of seconds you want to have, above is set to 25 seconds.
I have heard on the 'grapevine' that using the full 30 seconds may make a difference to how you are billed, that is a higher charge in the incremental way you are billed. So 25 seconds should be the maximum duration.
