Anyone any idea how to deactivate voice mail, or at least allow phone to ring for longer than the allocated 15 seconds before voice mail kicks in on LG Chocolat KG800. I find this is not always enough time to answer phone. Thanks

To turn off your voice mail automatically, turn off your phone and turn it back on after 5 minutes, then you enter ##002# and press the green/dial button, it will automatically deactivate the voice mail from the phone. Then test it by dialing the number of the phone from another phone to see if it will go to the voice mail or it will ring normally. I trust it will ring normally after doing the ##002# and dial voice mail reset.
Hope this helped you. Thanks for using fixya.
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.
Methinks the welcome message is stored in you telephone set. Try another set, or enter a new welcome messsage. Could it be that the telephone line carries two different lines. Check with you telephone company. Older service may have not been deactivated.
Just a few (possibly farfetched) leads for you to investigate.
A) The simplest method is to call your carrier and request a longer ring time, up to 30 seconds.
B) If you have a GSM based phone, some have had success by dialing this number from your phone: **61*XXXXXXXXXXX**30#
Replace XXXXXXXXXXX with the number of your carrier voice mail
center (find it by looking at your Phone Dialer > Options >
VoiceMail > Access Number. Put your access number in place of the Xs
For example, the T-Mobile voice mail access number is 18056377243, and thus the string to dial would be **61*18056377243**30#
Replace the 30 at the end of the string with your desired seconds. For most carriers, 30 seconds is the longest allowed.
