Goes to voicemail after 3 rings

by Bob

It's almost impossible for me to answer the call before it goes to voicemail. How do I set the number of rings to allow more time to answer the call?

Bob,

I can't find a way to change this setting. I tried calling voicemail and going through the administrative options but nothing doing. For the moment, all I can think of doing is trying out a longer ringtone or deactivating voicemail. Even if voicemail is deactivated, I believe the call is still suspended after a few rings, and the caller is told that the person does not have a voice mailbox set up. So it's possible this is hardwired into the system.

I'll update this if I find out any more info.

Regards,

rings adjustment
by: Anonymous

I called Tracfone about this and they said that we cannot adjust this on our phone (strange). However, only they can change the number of rings by contacting the carrier for your phone. You would have to call the Tracfone customer service and ask for Line Activation Dept. The rep. couldn't get through to them for me tonight so I will try again tomorrow and hopefully it will be changed.
