Want to set number of rings before going to voice mail
Is there a way to set the Breeze C520 to more than a few rings, before it goes to voice mail?  My mother's old phone let her do that, but we cannot find the setting in the Breeze.

Thanks!

Peter

     Customer care can alter the ringtime for you, maximum ringtime is 30 seconds which is aprox 6 rings before voicemail picks up.

You can also do it yourself:

The following codes should allow you to control the delay from 5 to 30 seconds on any GSM phone:

* Status: *#61#[SEND] The status will report the delay (5, 10, 15.., up to 30) & the number where your calls are diverted if there is no answer.
* Activate: **61*[number]**[delay]#[SEND] Use the number that was reported by the status & the delay can be set to (5, 10, 15, 20, 25, or 30) seconds.
* Cancel: ##61#[SEND]

Thanks wilcre and hidden dragon!  I'm a cell phone bonehead, so how do I input the codes?  Does the first * key bring up the Status and Activate options?

Thanks!

Simply press the keys as indicated...and in the steps provided.  Jot down the voicemail number it will return.  Then, indicate the delay time.

I think I've got it... the actual commands are:

*#61#[SEND]

**61*[number]**[delay]#[SEND]

##61#[SEND]

I was confused by the descriptive * Status, etc in front.  Heck, with cell phones, I'm very easily confused!

I'll be back at Mom's house on Wednesday, so I'll try it then.

Thanks again for your help!

I tried it this morning, and it worked perfectly!  It wouldn't accept 30 seconds, but it took 20 seconds.  It was originally set to 5 seconds - no wonder Mom couldn't answer it in time.

Thanks for all the help!

Thank you so much!! Why isn't this available through the menu? I'm getting frustrated with how little you can do through the menus.
