Your phone rings for 15 seconds before diverting a call to MessageBank® – however you can change this using increments of five seconds, up to a maximum of 30 seconds.
 
To extend the ring time, enter the following sequence on your mobile phone:
 
  • **61*101** (number of seconds: 15, 20, 25 or 30) #.
  • Then press the call/send button.
How to restore or remove original settings
 
  • To restore all three conditional call forwarding settings (Busy, No Answer, No Reply) to MessageBank®, enter **004*101 #.
  • To remove all three conditional call forwarding settings (Busy, No Answer, No Reply) to MessageBank®, enter ##004 #.
Both of these actions will set the default ring time of 15 seconds.
