  • How do I change the length of time before a call goes to voicemail?

    You can change how long your mobile is set to ring before going to voicemail from 5 to 30 seconds, in 5-second intervals. It's set to 15 seconds as standard.

    To change the time:

    1. Dial **61*121*11*
    2. Then, before pressing call, enter the number of seconds you’d like your phone to ring for, followed by #
    3. Press Call
    4. A confirmation message will pop up on your screen with your new ring time

    For example, setting it to 25 seconds would look like this: **61*121*11*25#.

    This applies for both voicemail and Visual Voicemail.

    This simple video explains how to change the length of time before a call goes to voicemail.
