View Voice Mail setup in you manual. Manuals are available online for read or download. Some VMail functions are Carrier specific. Look at info carrier included with your phone, or access your Vmail and you will hear an option for Vmail Setup. If these two steps don't work, call your carrier. This does sound like a carrier thing,

A caution regarding Hard Reseting your phone, this is a last resort to solving phone problems because a Hard Reset, as opposed to a Soft power off/on Reset, will default(set) your phone back to the state you received it from the mfg/carrier. ANYTHING you put/personalized on the phone is ERASED. This includes apps/settings/files/messages etc etc. Even if you have backedup your phone with a third party app, sometimes you will find your backup's won't work, or are a pain, to get your phone back to where it was when you did a Hard Reset. In addition, a Hard Reset is rarely your problem. It is usually a phone Setting, a phone Carrier,or defective phone(in which case it is worth trying a Hard Reset).

How do I change the number of times my samsun blackjack phone rings before it goes to voicemail


Go to settings, phone, voice calls, forwarding, unavalible or no answer. In there you can select the number of seconds. Each ring is equal to 5 seconds.

Battery on my HTC s710 lasts for 3-4 hours


if you momentarily push the "start" button, that should put the phone into hybernation. Which means the screen will go dark and quit using power. If the phone rings it will automatically wake up. If you want to use it just hit the start button again.

There are also some settings in the "settings" menu that determine when and for how long the screen stays illuminated when not in use.

HTTC 6800 Not receiving calls in sleep mode


You want to make sure your callforwarding is on. Sometimes when you select sleep mode, the calls will divert directly to Voicemail. Plus, ensure you have signal. Without signal, by default the calls go directily to voicemail. We won't wanna miss a call here. You can follow these steps here. start
settings
phone
services
call forwarding
get settings (wait for a while)
forward all incoming phone calls (check the box)
OK
OK
Exit

In the option to forward calls, there should be an option for the amount of seconds the phone RINGS prior to forwarding directly to voicemail.
IF your HTC device doesn't have the option for voicemail, and your calls are routed else where, contact your carrier for the voicemail number. This is very important!

Cheers!

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
