to prolong ringtunes before it goes directly to your voicemail you have to go to your callforwarding option and you can extend the regular ring to more than 30secs before it goes to your voicemail// remember go to your call forwarding settings. your other concern; did you downloaded it and saved it on your memory chip/card? you have to access the file from a computer and check if its lock or not, right click on file then check properties of the said file.

Hope this helps

Nokia 5800 everytime is press to go on the internet it says packet data connection lost what or how do i fix this ?!!! grrrrr

Do a Master Reset:
CAUTION: A "master reset" changes the phone settings back to default. This process will erase all contacts, downloaded settings, and downloaded applications (ringtones, wallpapers, graphics, etc). This process cannot be undone.
Enter*7370# from the standby screen. And the default phone code is 12345

Hi there I would like my Nokia 5800 XpressMusic phone to ring longer before it goes to voicemail. How do I change it? Thanks in advance

I also have Nokia 5800 XM. From my own experience, the time from the beginning of incoming call until voice mail is provider setting so we can't change it manually. I think you can just increase your ringing tones so you can notice every incoming call faster.

If this helpful, RATE please !

Nokia phone 6085

i had the same problem where it would ring for 5 sec and go to voicemail. just call at&t 1-800-331-0500 (or other provider) and ask them to lengthen your ringtone. its crazy that they have this much control. make sure they DO NOT set it for more than 25 sec because you will be deducted from calls lasting longer than 29 sec.
