Increase time the iPhone rings before diverting to Voicemail

Anonymous

O2's FAQ for iPhone has the following topic:

"Can I increase the length of time the iPhone rings before diverting to voicemail?


Yes, just like any other handset you can change the length of time the iPhone rings before diverting to voicemail by entering **61*901*NN# SEND (NN is the number of seconds in increments of 5 and a maximum of 30 seconds)."

This code is incorrect. It should be "**61*901*11*NN# SEND"

Hope this helps anyone.

Good tip - is there a way of finding out what it is set to right now?

I tried the above code to try to change it to 30 seconds but it wouldn't have it. When I changed it to 25 seconds, the code went in fine. Great help, thanks.

I had a go at the code and also tried 25sec - it went to voice mail after 13 sec.

I think you mis-counted the "second".. I believe you've counted 1 ring for 1 second, but in fact, 1 ring = 2 seconds... So in your case, your call forwards to voicemail after 13 rings, just about 25 seconds, right?

The above code does work. **61*901*11*nn# increments of 5 and then press call. you can only do it on the phone section not by text message.

Don't want to divert to voice mail at all.

Can I enter a code to turn it off for good?

Just dial 1760 and that will turn off voicemail. Its a free call. Call 1750 if you want to turn it back on. slight_smile
