Extend Blackberry ring time

I have a Blackberry Pearl 8900 on O2, I’ve had it a while now.

One big gripe I had with it is that the ringer doesn’t last long enough.

By the time I’ve pulled it out of my pocket, taken it out of it’s pocket, and assessed whether I want to answer the call, it’s already too late, especially if I’m in the middle of doing something else.

So, I can’t expect it to be perfect, but surely the ring time can be extended or increased? Here’s the solution…

Enter **61*901*11*xx# in to the phone, where xx is, enter the amount of time you want it to ring before it goes to voicemail.

For example: **61*901*11*30# would mean it would ring for 30 seconds before going on to voicemail.

I’ve no idea what the default was, but I’m sure it’s too low.

Next: Use a ringtone that doesn’t have a silent lead.

Hope this helps!
