How To: Change the time before voicemail diverts call
Annoyed with the HTC G1 mobile because incoming calls go to voicemail before you can answer the phone? Its a common issue where many calls are missed because the default timeout is 15 seconds which is too short for many people. This is a guide to easily change the time before your mobile diverts the call to voicemail from anything from 5 to 30 seconds.
Just follow these steps:
- Enter *#61*11# and press Send/Talk on your phone.
- Write down the number your calls are currently forwarded to. This is your voicemail deposit number.
- Decide how long you want the phone to ring in 5 second intervals. The maximum time is 30 seconds. I have mine set at 25 seconds.
- Now enter **61*[number from step 2]*11*[number from step 3, use 2 digits]# and press Send/Talk.
Example: **61*441234567890*11*25# Then press Send/Talk
This will now change your default ring time before voicemail answers to 25 seconds. To test if it was successful, enter *#61*11# and press Send/Talk for the new value. Hope this helps!
