How to increase ring time

Even after O2 customer service told to me to input **61*901*11*30# to increase ring time to 30 seconds before voicemail kicks in, and press call on my Samsung Galaxy S7, it did not work. A message states " connection problem or invalid MMI code". Please help. Thanks Keith

It may be an o2 network issue ?

Re: How to increase ring time

Hello @Anonymous

The technical team have been trying to find a general motive or cause for the issue, but it looks like the problem is complex, so please, if you are having issues with setting up or amending call diverts you need to call customer services so they can complete fault diagnostics and raise a case for it to be investigated, if needed. This isn’t something we can really do via the Community I’m afraid.

Talk to a guru and they should be able to help you!

Re: How to increase ring time

I'm currently having the same issue with trying to increase the amount of time to the maximum of 30 seconds (currently 'defaulted' at 20 seconds) before my incoming calls divert to Voicemail. It's been nearly 8 months since the last post in relation to this matter here . . . has any solution been arrived at yet please? Surely it can't be that 'complex' that a major provider like O2 hasn't solved it yet.

Hi Cleoriff,

 

Thanks for that, and I had indeed read the two help links that you kindly included . . . 'guess I'm just stuck with the 20 seconds/switching it on and off options along with everyone else then. It seems pretty unacceptable that O2 can't solve such a basic issue though, but "hey ho!"

Cheers!

Just maybe you could try changing your ring tone and then try a reset of the ring tone length.

Text: “reset” or “RESET” to 802901.to reset your voicemail which may also sort out the availability of 30 seconds after  but you will lose any stored voicemails.

You will then receive a text back which has a random 5 digit number. Then dial 901 – where you will be asked to enter the random 5 digit number from the text.

You'll then be asked to enter a new PIN. Anything between 4 and 10 digits can be used except for 8705.

I'm clutching at straws here....
