I cannot change the default number of rings before the call is forwarded. Could do so with my previous cell phone on the same carrier, Centennial wireless. It rings many times, so long that callers often hang up before the call is forwarded. Any ideas or software solutions?

Re: Call forwarding with Treo 650
Call forwarding is not controlled by the device itself, but the switch which is serving your cell phone. Most carriers have a start code to change the number of rings before forwarding usually *74 send then press the number of second before forwarding each ring is about 3-5 seconds or something to that effect. If you contact your carrier they should be able to tell you.

Generally Go To Settings > Call Settings > Additional Settings / Call Forwarding Settings > Voice Calls > Change the always forward Settings, here it will ask you for Number of Rings Before Forwarding. Change that as per your convenience.
This is a "Class Of Service" function. The out-ot-box default setting is generally 3 rings. However, different extensions can be set to each forward to VM after differing number of rings, but each phone will need to be assigned its own specific Class Of Service and the Call forward timers defined accordingly in those classes of service. Normally your system manager will define several classes of service with different forward-no-answer timers then assign those COS to people who request specific call forward timing. The default is usually 3 rings. Hope this helps
It's called "call forwarding" and the procedure varies from company to company. With many, dial * 7 2 on your home phone, then at the second dial tone dial your cell phone number. Answer your cell phone when it rings to confirm the call forwarding. To cancel call forwarding when you return from vacation, dial * 7 3 on your home phone. If the above doesn't work then contact your landline telephone company for their instructions regarding call forwarding.
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
Write down the xxxYYYzzz number (including +1) - this is the number to
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.
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
To find out what it is and try
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  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.
Figure out if your particular cell phone model has the option to forward incoming calls. You can do this by visiting your cell phone manufacturer's website or reading the manufacturer's manual that came along with the purchase.
Access the "Settings" menu on your cell phone and select "Phone Settings" menu.
Select the "Call Forwarding" option in the "Phone Settings menu. This option is usually found at the bottom of the "Phone Settings" menu. Selecting the "Call Forwarding" option gives you access to call-forwarding controls.
Switch on the "Call Forwarding" slider. The default position is off.
Insert the phone number you wish to forward your calls to in the "Forward To" field. This field most commonly lies below the "Call Forwarding" slider.
Exit the setup menu by pressing the home button. You may be asked to confirm/save the changed settings depending on your cell phone model.
Make a test phone call to the cell phone number on which you just enabled the call rerouting option. If the call is forwarded and received on the number you entered, it means that the "Call Forwarding" option has been activated.
Hi I have posted a video for you which shows how to forward calls, you need to find out what the Voice Mail number is, so that you can set the forward to this number. there are various options for forwarding, 'All Calls' and 'Busy , No answer' are the best options, if the one uploaded is wrong chech out 'abbeytel' on Youtube where you will find the right one. Just to note that if you want to forward to your cell this is no problem. Further info vist www.abbeytelecom.com
The Motorola H700 has Bluetooth v1.2 which is backward compatible with v1.1. The headset works with both Hands-free and Headset profiles and is easy to pair with devices running various operating systems and software. We tested the headset with the Motorola SLVR, Palm Treo 650, the Nokia 9500, the Cingular 8125 and the Cingular 2125, and the headset paired with all devices with ease. To pair the Motorola, turn off the headset first then hold the Call button until the LED ring turns purple, quickly open the boom so that the LED stays solid purple, the headset is now in pairing mode. Use your mobile phone to discover and pair with the headset using “0000” as the default pass code. Call handling between the phone and the headset transferred smoothly and the headset will play notification or a ring tone when a call comes in. When working with the Treo 650, the H700 has an uncomfortably long delay in notifying an incoming call. It starts to ring after the Treo 650 has already ringed 2-3 times. The connection between the phone and the headset is solid. When we paired the Treo 650 to both the Motorola H700 and the Parrot 322 car kit, we can pick up calls on either one and the Motorola H700 worked reliably in this set up. Hope I helpedDr Reed
The 650 seems to have a delicate headphone/mic jack. Dropping the phone, even gently, seems mess up that jack. I returned my first treo 650 as defective, and got a new one. The same thing happened to my new 650 after I simply compressed the phone in my breast coat pocket by holding my mail against my chest.
I can't get a new one because the replacement treo comes with no warranty of any kind. :(
My advice would be to find a PDA/phone repair service to repair the jack or diagnose the problem if it turns out not to be the jack.
