Cingular Voicemail Hack

Have you ever heard your mobile phone ringing in another room, run to answer it but get there in time to have the voicemail kick in after four rings. While scouring the Cingular bulletin boards I found someone who posted the codes to extend your ring time before an incoming call forwards to a voice mailbox.

You can use the following codes to control the delay from 5 to 30 seconds on any GSM phone:
1.To get the current call forwarding status, enter *#61#[SEND] into your phone.

2.Write down the 10-digit number, this is the phone number that your calls are currently being diverted to.

3.Enter **61*[number]*11*[delay]#[SEND] into your phone using the phone number (numbers only) as reported by the status & the delay can be set to (5, 10, 15, 20, 25, or 30) seconds.

4.To verify that the settings are correct, enter *#61#[SEND] into your phone.

I used this on my Palm Treo 650 and E's Motorola V3 RAZR and now I have much more time to answer my phone before voice mail takes over.
