Feedback received on this FAQ entry:
  • On HSPA phones number of rings to voicemail on Bell Mobility as I've have been told by another user: (note: this are in multiples of five) *61*6473832355*11* [enter your five interger here] 15 being network default at 3 rings to voicemail] if that's too few rings, change the value by a mutiple of 5 only, using values other than 5 | 10 | 15 | 20 - etc will change the default to an unknown value. Once done press (send) *dial* that string of digits you have entered on your phone]

  • On Bell CDMA phones, *94 (plus) number of desired rings, controls number of rings to voicemail. *94 (plus) 5 would be the default.
