Setting the number of rings before Message Centre picks up
Note: This feature only works when the phone is ON and on the EVDO/1XRTT network.
Do you know which network your device uses?
To choose how long your phone rings before a caller will go to your voicemail:
Dial *94 on your mobile phone – don’t press SEND yet.
Enter the number of standard rings (between two and nine) that you’d like your callers to hear before Message Centre picks up.
You will hear a tone to confirm that the feature was activated. If the change wasn’t successful, you’ll hear a fast busy signal; repeat steps 1 to 3.
Good to know
Different types of phones have different standard ring lengths and customizable settings. If you enter a number of rings less than two or more than nine, the system will automatically abort the change and default to the previous setting.
