    Default How to change the number of rings before a call goes to voicemail on Optus

    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!

    thank you!! This is so annoying, I cant hear it and it goes straight to voicemail. Not as bad since I did the sound fix though, but was sitl a problem. Thanks!

    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.
