    Question Cell phone question

    I have a phone with AT&T. It goes to voice mail after 4 rings and I too often take 5 or 6. I can't find a way to change the number of rings. Is there a way change this setting?

    Try this, it won't increase the number of rings, but will increase the time before voicemail picks up. If it works.

    On your phone, dial *#61# and click Send.

    Some information should be displayed: number that the calls are being forwarded to and the delay before the forwarding engages.

    Write down the number (including +1)

    Dial **61*+1xxxyyyzzzz*11*30# and hit Send.

    +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.

    I'd read through that whole thread, Tom. Good luck.

    Of you have AT&T all you need to do is call customer service and they will adjust the number of rings automatically from their equipment. That is what I have done in the past
