Hello @john9210, we'll be happy to assist with changing the amount of times your device rings before going to voicemail. 


We want to get you into a PM to review your device settings. In the meantime, gather your account information and respond to the next message that is private. 


Thank you.

It’s not a setting on your phone.  It’s a setting controlled by the carrier, and it’s usually measured in seconds, not actually counting rings.  Typically it’s 25 seconds, which is 4-5 rings.  You’ll have to contact AT&T to get them to change your setting.
