ability to change # of rings before voicemail picks up on my WF720 wireless home phone

I want to change # of rings before voicemail picks up  on my WF720 wireless home phone or better yet, to disable its voicemail altogether.  My reason:  I want to use the voicemail system on my cordless phone because it has an audible signal for new messages.

Re: ability to change # of rings before voicemail picks up on my WF720 wireless home phone

Note that you can control the ringing time, not number of rings. Here's how:

 

  1. On your phone, dial *#61# and click Send.
  2. Some information should be displayed: number that the calls are being forwarded to and the delay before the forwarding engages (note: on some phones, like Sony Ericsson the delay is not reported).
  3. Write down the number (including +1)
  4. Dial **61*+1xxxyyyzzzz*11*30# and hit Send. +1xxxyyyzzzz is the number you wrote down previously, 30 is the delay in seconds. The delay can be set in 5 second increments, 30 is maximum
  5. Dial *#61# to verify that the new settings are active (note: if your phone doesn't display the delay, you will have to place a test call to it instead from a different phone).
