I live in Canada and my wireless provider is Rogers. I tried this tip any which way I could including doing many google.com searches, but it would appear that this doesn't work on the Rogers network.

Just thought I'd post a message to save time for any else on the Rogers networks wanted to give this a try.

It would appear the only recourse we have on Rogers is to call customer service and have them adjust it.

Can't get this to work on my C550 on Orange - keeps telling me "command not supported". Any ideas?

I've tried the original code, the Orange variant noted above (with 2 *'s) and using the international version of the answerphone number. Still no go.

Can anyone get it to work on a T-Mobile MDA Vario, keep saying COMMAND NOT SUPPORTED, tried various combinations.

ALSO: Is this setting put on a phone basis or is it put onto the SIM CARD?

The code as described here didn't work for me. However I typed
**61*+4523121212**30#
and that made it do the trick, if I left out the '11'. Other having the same problem that solved by this?

Hi. I need more time to record my voice mail greetings. The trick could be the code that precedes number of minutes needed. In this case it's 11. Any ideas how to overcome that problem?













I read the following article in a Mobile Phone magazine yesterday and though it might be of interest.

I don't know if you get frustrated with the relatively short time that some mobile phones appear to ring before going on to Voice Mail and wished that this timescale could be extended (bag/pocket search and extract time) , but if you suffer from this problem, then here is a fix.

Note: This may not work for all phones or networks, but you can't do any harm trying..

Step 1. Key in the following into your phone *#61# then press the call/send button. This will return a telephone number and, on smartphones, the current delay time before voice mail kicks in .

Step 2. Write it down. (For Orange, I think the number would be 0793100123 for example)

Step 3. If you wanted, say, 25 seconds, before the Voice mail activated, then you would put 30 where the nn is in the following string and the telephone number from step 2 where the xxxxxxxx is.

Key in **61*xxxxxxxxx*11*nn# followed by the call/send button and it should update the delay.

For example, if I was on Orange and I wanted a 25 second delay, I would key in **61*07973100123*11*25#

If your phone reports the delay time, you can check by following step 1 again.

If it doesn't work, then 2 things to try.
Double-check that you have entered the correct number of stars and hashes or try putting the telephone number in International format (eg +44793100123 instead of 0793100123)
