My Blackberry pearl will only ring twice before going to voicemail. Which is never enough time to answer the call!

You can however adjust the amount of time (in seconds) that a number will ring if you dial the following code (press the green button then dial):


The last digits are the seconds before going to voicemail (25 seconds in this instance). The default is 15 seconds.

  • Facebook
  • LinkedIn
  • email
  • TwitThis

    This also works for Android so must be to do with o2 rather than the phone you are using.

    Thanks  very much for this simple solution


  • This feature will be useful for you if you do not want to be disturbed when in a meeting. Remember, the noise which may be caused by your phone when it is ringing may distract you and other people who are also included in the conference.

    Hi Folks,

    Probably a bit late but I think the time periods are multiples of 5, e.g., 5, 10, 15, 20, etc. I tried putting in 6 and I got an error message of 'non-acceptance'. I then tried 30 and everything's okay.

    i can't get it to work - and one would think that such a modification should be easier!
