On your menu - go to call diverting, then no reply - even it says "not done" after pressing it - it still seems to activate it? had the same problem.

How do i get my samson phone to ring longer

Before it goes to voice mail?

This is not a phone setting, but your carrier setting. When you go in to listen to your voicemail, it should be in 'Other Options'. Some don't give you any choice, 6 rings and it gone.

Goes to voice main on first try on second try rings

According to iPhone " How can set the number of rings on my iPhone before voicemail picks up?
You can set the iPhone to wait longer or shorter than the default 20 seconds before it goes to voicemail when receiving an incoming call. This will result in a different number of rings before the voice messaging system picks up the line and plays your outgoing message. To change the amount of time the iPhone will ring follow these steps:
1. Open the phone app and dial *#61# on the Keypad. Press the Call button.
2. Locate this text on the screen: "Setting Interrogation Succeeded, Voice Call Forwarding, When Unanswered, Forwards to +" and record the 11-digit number after the + symbol.
3. Touch the Dismiss button. Now enter this code on the Keypad: *61*+ followed by the 11-digit Forwards to number recorded in step 2, followed by *11 and *ringtime#. Ringtime is the number of seconds you want your iPhone to ring before voicemail picks up. Your finished code should look something like this:
In the example above the ring time is set to 30 seconds. Press the Call button.
4. You should receive the message: Setting Activation Succeeded. Press Dismiss and next time you receive a call it will ring for the new amount of time before going to voicemail."
According to Apple Tool "having this problem, please try the followings:
  • Make sure that iPhone's Ring/Silent switch is OFF meaning ringer is ON. A bell will flash briefly on the screen when you turn on the ringer.
  • Make sure that the Do Not Disturb setting is not silencing calls (Settings > Do Not Disturb).
  • Make sure that Airplane Mode is OFF (Settings > Airplane Mode).
  • Make sure that your carrier software is up to date (Settings > General > About)."

How do i change the number of rings before voicemail picks up on a samsung rugby

For all of you that want a real answer here ya go. This isn't something you can change on your phone this has to be changed with your service provider. If you are with AT&T, like I am, then this is the solution for you (link of where I found it below as well). 1. enter *#61*11# and press send/talk on your phone.
2. write down the number your calls are currently forwarded to (usually +1401#######, but not always). this is your voicemail deposit number.
3. decide how long you want the phone to ring in 5 second intervals. the maximum time is 30 seconds. i'd recommend 25 seconds or less, as using 30 may cause you to be billed for a minute of airtime each time someone is forwarded to voicemail.
4. now enter **61*[number from step 2]*11*[number from step 3, use 2 digits]# and press send/talk.

voicemail deposit number is +14015551212
you want it to ring for 20 seconds
you would enter **61*+14015551212*11*20# and press send/talk.

if you have trouble with the above procedure, you can always call customer care at 800-331-0500 to change it.
OR QUESTION: How can I adjust the number of times my wireless phone will ring before the caller goes to voicemail? ANSWER: Contact Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500 or dial 611 from your wireless phone to change the amount of time your phone will ring before going to voice mail. The adjustments made by Customer Care are based on the traditional ring heard by the caller, not the unique Ringtone you hear from your phone. I just wanted to add that increasing the ring length to 30 seconds will not cause you to be charged a minute should the caller go to voicemail. This was confirmed by an AT&T technician.

Set number of rings before voicemail iphone

This procedure allows your iPhone to ring for longer or shorter periods than the default setting of 20 seconds before voicemail answers. *** Attempt at your own risk but if you pay attention to the keys you input and follow the directions you should have no problems.

1. On your phone, dial *#61# and click Call

The screen will display:

Setting Interrogation Succeeded
Voice Call Forwarding
When Unanswered
Forwards to +1xxxYYYzzzz

2. Write down the xxxYYYzzz number (including +1) - this is the number to your voicemail.

3. In order to make the + appear on the keypad in the next step you'll have to hold Zero down for a few seconds, then it will become a Plus (+). Dial **61*+1xxxYYYzzzz**30# and hit Call. +1xxxYYYzzzz is the number you wrote down previously, 30 is the delay in seconds. The delay can be set in 5 second increments, 30 is maximum.

4. Dial *#61# to verify that the new settings are active.

5. Verify working voice mail.

If you find you or your contacts are not being forwarded to your voice mail you have incorrectly altered your voice mail forward number.

To find out what it is and try again:

Dial ##002# and send. This will reset that forward number to factory defaults.

By then Dialing *#61# you will again display the your current (default) voice mail forwarding number.

Return to step [2] and continue.

*** Use this tutorial at your own risk ***...and if you have the time you can always give AT&T a call to have them change the number of rings on an incoming call before Visual Voicemail kicks in. I was able to quickly change the duration on my own, using these diagnostic iPhone GSM codes. The default time duration before Visual Voicemail intercepts the call is set by AT&T to 20 seconds. You will be able to add another 10 seconds yourself, but if you want your callers to wait more than 30 seconds before voicemail picks up then you'll need to contact AT&T technical support - they can change the duration to 45 seconds upon request.

I have voicemail through my telephone company. Recently my SAMSUNG SGH-D980 phone system has been answering the calls for voicemail, instead of going to my phone company voicemail. I am being left messages that I cannot retrieve! I would like to "turn off" the voicemail function of my phone system. I'm not sure why the phone changed from working "properly" to now picking up voicemail calls. Thank you for any help you can give me!

Can I set the ringtone to ring for longer?

Try typing the following into your phone, then hitting SEND - replace the words in brackets with the relevant numbers):
**61*(voicemail or diversion phone number)**(seconds delay before diverting)#

This works for "Divert on No Answer". To check the status of this diversion use *#61#

Hi nexy - the best I can do for now is a couple things snd nothing definitive. Usually when a cell is off it takes 2 to 3 three rings before it goes to voice mail. When its' on about 5 to 6. There's a real good chance these are at the discretion of your service provider. That's my best bet. I've included a link to your manual in case you don't have yours. Look at page 50 (i think) and it tells about voice mail settings. You can go in there and take a look but don't get your hopes up. If this answered your question PLEASE rate as fixed. If your going to rate helpful or otherwise please don't rate. I've had many cell phones and I think I answered your question. So please rate fixed or not at all. I'd appreciate it. Thanks much nexy. Call you provider!!

Phone rings only one time and goes to voicemail

You cannot make the ring longer from the phone. You must call AT&T and have them changed on their side.
