    What is a pre war Samsung?

    Unless I am mistaken, I don't think there is any way to change the ring to VM time. I think it's fairly standard at 20-30 seconds of ring, then go to VM.

    It's a Samsung s5560 which was donkeys years old lol.

    Oh ok, bit disappointed with that then! guess I'll need to keep it near or get some sprint lessons in, as apart from that it's a fantastic phone. Who knew I could get the Internet on a phone (see pre war).
    Thanks for your help xx

    Maybe someone will come along and contradict what I said, but I don't think so. I do recall on some phone or service I had long ago I could adjust the the number of rings before it went to VM. Something link 4 rings or 6. It was a loooong time ago, so this may have been before I had a cell phone. I just can't remember.

    The Lumia 710 is great. I am glad you like it. Having Internet on the go is really nice in some situations.

    what you speak of is set on the carrier side and has nothing to do with the phone. for your purposes you could get a ringtone file that plays a bit of noise following by long silence. That would still not stop the time the carrier has assigned for the phone to go to VM.

    Who is the carrier? I know on o2 UK I was able to change the length of time the phone would ring prior to going to voicemail by sending a shortcode via text message iirc.

    Anything from 5 to 30 seconds. Not tried on my new provider 3 as it does the full 30 seconds already before going to voicemail.

    Hi I rang Vodafone, they gave me a code to put the VM back to 30 secs :-)) so no need to sprint now, which now makes my phone perfect! thanks for all your help guys much appreciated xx
