When I receive a call it goes directly to voicemail and I can't answer it, I have to call them back?


Check your settings.
Do not disturb will send callers to voice mail.
If you were talking to someone and someone else called it will go to voice mail if you do not have call waiting feature option or turned on.

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.

example
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.

My i265 goes straight to voicemail and doeasn't allow me to answer.


Per the Sprint support site at http://search.sprint.com/inquiraapp/ui.jsp?ui_mode=answer&prior_transaction_id=2&iq_action=5&answer_id=33554455&highlight_info=6293864,0,6&turl=http%3A%2F%2Fsupport.sprint.com%2Fsupport%2Farticle%2FSet_the_number_of_rings_for_voicemail%2Fcase-ev207663-20090626-084943#__highlight&id16=voice+mail :
"A call will roll to your voicemail if unanswered after 23 seconds.
This setting can't be changed. However, on your Sprint phone, you can change your ring tone to one that reduces or increases the number of rings you hear before an incoming call rolls to voicemail.
For details about setting up and changing your ring tones, refer to the user guide for your phone."
If this is not the problem with your phone I suggest you call their support line:

Call *2 from your cellular phone or 888-211-4727 (Sprint phones) or 800-639-6111 (Nextel phones)
They may ask you to perform troubleshooting tasks, so it would be best to call from a phone other than the one you need help with.

I want to change my voice mail and whenever someone tries to call me it goes straight to voice mail what can i do about this?ive got samsung c3050


The scenario that you describe is typically caused by voicemail service on the carrier's side of the network. The majority of the time, a call being routed directly to voicemail is due to the phone not being 100% recognized on the network (perhaps this is a phone that is replacing a phone on existing account / number?) or roaming is not supported. Some forwarding modes may contribute, but not usually direct to voicemail unless you have inadvertently forwarded to voicemail explicitly.

My lg 410g phone does not ring when there's incoming call but goes directly to voicemail


Hello,

the reason the phone automatically goes to voice mail is simply because the phone has sim card has been set to do so.

The solution is for you to deactivate the voicemail.

That is when you will be able to receive your call properly.

To deactivate the voicemail, all you have to do is to dial ##002# and send.

it will deactivate the voicemail of your phone and you will be able to receive your calls aswell as your phone will also start to ring out.

take care

Phone won't ring


Check your call options to see if something called "Call Forward" is on. That might be your problem.
