How to Lengthen Ringtime on any O2 Mobile

The following method will work on any O2 mobile and means you can control the time interval before a call goes to Voicemail.

 

Enter the following into your keypad as though you were just making a call :

 

**61*901*11*30# then simply press 'call'.

 

please note 30 is the time in seconds before voicemail kicks in and can be set in increments of 5 ie. 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 to a maximum of 30 seconds. (also see video)

 

Alternatively you can switch voicemail off completely by calling 1760 from your mobile when you know you will be available to answer calls. Switch on again when needed by calling 1750.

 

More info on Voicemail here : Using Voicemail | Support | O2

 

 

Just a tip : To avoid charges when travelling overseas switch off voicemail before you go as you cannot do so once you have left the UK

Hi guys,

 

I've added this to the FAQs.

 

Do you think it would benefit to be included in the FAQS on other boards? Or its own sticky? I have avoided this on the basis of not busying the board, but I'm happy to hear your thoughts and amend if necessary.

 

Lovely guide jonsie!
