ok anyone on optus can do it..

That is, to divert to the voicemail after 6 rings, you enter
**61*321*11*20#,
where 321 is the voicemail number and it waits for 20s and is about 6 rings. I think you can set it to 10 (3 rings), 20 (6 rings), 30 (9 rings), etc. the max is 30. enjoy!

I just rang the free optus customer service line told them my name, DOB, number and that i wanted it extended to the maxim amount of rings then she did it for me. To easy, but i didnt realise you could just text it!

What if I do not want voicemail at all and want it to keep ringing until the caller hang up ?

Turn off call diversions (its in Settings), I'm not sure about Optus but this generally will ring for a very long time before the network drops the call, so people usually hang up first.

I don't see any setting by that name. I only see Call forwarding and Call waiting.

Excellent.

Therefore, ##002# is to disable voice mail. Exactly what I want.
