That's controlled by your service provider, give them a call, they may be able to control the amount of time before it rolls to the message bank.  If it's a GSM phone, you can set that yourself, like so:

  1. To get the current call forwarding status, enter *#61#[SEND] into your phone.
  2. Write down the number(ignore the +1), this is the phone number that your calls are currently being diverted to.
  3. Enter **61*number*11*[delay]#[SEND] into your phone using the phone number (numbers only) as reported by the status & the delay can be set to (5, 10, 15, 20, 25, or 30) seconds.
  4. To verify that the settings are correct, enter *#61#[SEND] into your phone.

Xperia arc s LT18i only rings 3 times before going to message bank

hi, im not sure on your exact model but you need to change the call diverts, so its something like this,
1 go into settings
2 call settings
3 call diverts
4, no in here it has options like divert when busy, etc etc, it should also divert when not answered, click on this and choose status and it will tell you what its set to, then it should give you the option of changing the settings, some let you change to 30sec before answer, give me a shout back if you get stuck and ill find out how the menu works on your phone and talk you through the process

How can I set full length ringtone in LG GR500

dial **61*(the your message bank number)**30# this will extend the time it takes for your phone to divert to message bank to 30 secs. If you dont want message bank you can cancel call diverts in your seetings menu after putting in this code and it will still ring for 30 secs. Note: this does not work for Vodafone Australia

Our phones only ring 4 rings before going to message bank. We have a telstra wall connection, and 3 panasonic KX-TG1840AL


You can change the number of times the phone rings before the unit answers calls.
You can select 2 to 7 rings, or “Auto”.

“Auto”: The unit answers after 2 rings when new messages have been recorded, and
after 5 rings when there are no new messages. If you call your phone from
outside to listen to new messages, you will know that there are no messages when the phone rings for the 3rd time. You can then hang up without being charged for the call.

1 Press OK.
Select Answer System, then press >(Right navigation button).
2 Select Settings, then press >.
3 Select Number of Rings, then press >.
4 Select the desired setting, then press >.
5 Press End button

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.

Phone only rings three times before going to my message bank

If its going to your carriage service provider message bank then you need to reset this for a longer period. The carrier message bank is managed by the carrier.

If the cordless has an answering service, then you need to scroll through the menu on the phone to select answering functions and select 6 rings or longer.

Hi it sounds like your problem is that the call diverts are set to divert all calls what you need to do is goto settings then goto call settings then look for call divert settings what you need to do is cancel all diverts and then go through them one by one and just
activate divert if off (activating this one goes to ans phn if phn off
activate divert if busy ( goes to ans phn if your on phone call)
activate divert if out of reach (goes to ans phn if no signal)
After doing these settings then your phone should ring when someone calls you.
Before you activate any divert setting select cancel all diverts then get someone to ring you and make sure phone rings the screen will now display whos callind and the phone should also ring.
Let me know if you need further assistance ok let me know how you get on
