    As a new Samsung Galaxy Ace owner I am fed up with the phone only ringing for a short time before going to Voice mail. Can anyone help with extending the ringing time please?:cool:

    This has lots to do with your carrier and not much to do with the phone....

    Yes, depending on which carrier you are with & which country, there is a number you can dial into your phone to extend/reduce the number of rings before the voicemail takes over. Just Google your carrier or any forum with "extend ring time on mobile" & the code to dial will be easy to find! Hope this helps. Graham. London. :)

    1. On your phone, dial *#61# and click Send.
    2. Some information should be displayed: number that the calls are being forwarded to and the delay before the forwarding engages.
    3. Write down the number (including +1)
    4. Dial **61*+1xxxyyyzzzz*11*30# and hit Send. +1xxxyyyzzzz is the number you wrote down previously, 30 is the delay in seconds. The delay can be set in 5 second increments, 30 is maximum
    5. Dial *#61# to verify that the new settings are active.

    This was great, thank you so much, and worked on my phone, but I was a little confused by the international dialling code as +1 isn't mine. So I've changed it slightly, in case anyone else is looking for the answer, hope you don't mind!! (as I spent months trying to sort this out with several other threads sending me on a very long walk):

    1. On your phone, dial *#61# and click call.
    2. Information should be displayed: number that the calls are being forwarded to and the delay before the forwarding engages.
    3. Write down the number (including the international dialling code)
    4. Dial **61*+zzxxxyyyzzzz*11*30# and hit Send. +xxxyyyzzzz is the number you wrote down previously, including the international dialling code, 30 is the delay in seconds. The delay can be set in 5 second increments, 30 is maximum
    5. Dial *#61# to verify that the new settings are active.
