I tweeted last week about a blog post I’d found which suggests how to get your Blackberry to ring a little longer than the too short default setting.
This is because I also can’t find any way to change the Blackberry Bold config. itself, which is a bit odd – it was a straightforward setting on all the Nokias I have used in the past.
However, Caroline reported that the code I’d used meant that calls were not going through to voicemail, so I thought I’d post what I’ve found out subsequently.
I spoke with a very helpful lady from UK Vodafone over the weekend, and I understand that the code is:
**61*YOUR VOICEMAIL NUMBER HERE*10*30#
You put this code into the phone applet, characters and all, and then press the green ‘send’ button. You should get a message back from the network.
N.b. the voicemail number is different from your mobile number. Voicemail format is [e.g.] +447978123456 – i.e. include the +44 at the beginning, and knock off the initial zero.
Also fyi the 30 at the end is the length of time for the phone to ring before it goes to voicemail – in seconds. I believe you can increment it down in 5 second intervals (e.g. replace 30 with 20 if you want 20 seconds before ring out).
I found my own voicemail number on my Bold by going into:
Phone applet | Options | Call Forwarding | Forward Unanswered Calls
