Greetings.  first question for my new S3.  How do I change the number of rings of an incoming call before the answering machine of the phone kicks in?  There are many times I can't get to my phone beforehand and miss the incoming call. I don't see that anywhere in the phone or in the manual?

By answering machine do you mean your carrier's voice mail? if so, the ringing time will be set by them and as far as I know can't be changed by the user.

Stolen from elsewhere.

Android: How to change ring time for calls before sent to voicemail (AT&T / T-Mobile / GSM Networks)

 This tech-recipe will explain how to change the length of time your phone will ring before it sends a call to voicemail. This will only work on GSM based mobile carrier and Android phones (ie AT&T, T-Mobile, any network that uses a SIM Card).
 
1.On your Android phone, go to your Phone app and then dial: *#61# and hit Call button.
 
This will display your current voicemail number and the delay time. Write down the number since we will need to enter this in next.
 
2. On your Android phone, we will go to your Phone app and then the keypad. We will now dial this number from the keypad to change the time your phone will ring before it goes to Voicemail.
 
**61*1yyyYYYyyyy*11*xx# and then hit the call button
 
So in the above code, you will put your voicemail number where the yYs are and the time delay in seconds for the xx‘s. Once you hit call it will give confirmation if it was successful or not.
 
Delay is in five second increments with the maximum being 30 seconds (IE 5,10,15,20,25,30 secs).
 
So for example, if my voicemail number is 555-444-4444 and i want to set it to the maximum 30 seconds, i would dial this on my Android phone’s keypad:
 
**61*15554445555*11*30#
 
This will work for AT&T, T-Mobile, and any other GSM /Sim Card Carrier and may work on other phones besides Android devices. Good luck Laugh

You may also be able to do it online, at your carriers web address, on your accounts settings/voicemail options.

Just a point of note: the '1' before the voicemail number is the country code, '1' is USA, so for the UK you would change that to '44' etc

Not sure about other operators, but most of them do allow you to change your settings, by actually going into your voicemail and changing it there, there I must admit that this would be much quicker.

Adjusted the title from "Adjust ringer" to "Adjust amount of rings before voicemail kicks in" just to make it more clear what the thread is for. Happy

Thanks for posting it.

Please note that some of these codes might be disabled, due to them being hijacked in previous versions of android and used to wipe the phone.
