    Well, your friend had good intentions, but unfortunately, he is incorrect. Your i930 is with Nextel/Sprint correct? If so, you can call Nextel CS and have them put ringtone extension on your account. I am not sure if this is even still possible post merger with Sprint.

    If your phone was a GSM phone, you could enter a code to make the phone ring longer before voicemail picks up.

    not sure if you can do that with a cdma or iDen phone. Yes with gsm phones, you can simply enter a number in addition to your cell phone number...adjust between 5-30 seconds



    Is it true that there is a place in a man's head that if you shoot it, it will blow up??

    You could with Nextel, at one time. I remember doing it. I called CS and asked them to add ringtime extension on my account, and my phone rang longer before voicemail picked up. I am not sure if this is still a valid thing, since the merger with Sprint.

    Am sure the people who have to suffer through your "cool" ringtones will be ecstatic.

    Well you went from typing in ALL CAPS (huge no-no), to Capitalizing Every Word (pretty annoying). I suppose that's progress.

    What is the code and how do you set up the code on a Motorola V3 or V3xx phone. My mother has to find the phone in her purse when I am calling her Then she always tell's me that I hung up before she could answer the phone. Thanks for any information on this that you can share!!!

    where XXXXXXXXXX is the ten-digit voicemail system number for your area and
    tt is the time in seconds you want the phone to ring for. Valid numbers for
    tt are 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30. Since each ring is approx. 5 seconds
    including the blank space between them, that means 30 seconds should give
    you about 6 rings and that's the maximum you can do.

    For instance, to set the ring delay for the your market you would
    dial:

    *61*+1XXXXXXXXXX*11*tt#

    After pressing the "send/call" button you should get some sort of
    confirmation message.

    Note: If you don't know what the voicemail system number for your area is,
    dial *#61# on your phone.

    This is the code that I have. It is tested on Cingular, and works fine for me and my wife. You will need to know your mom's voicemail number, the number her phone dials to get to her voicemail. It may be the same as yours.

    Enter *61*+local voicemail number with area code*11 (for phone calls only)*time in seconds you want it to ring (5 second increments not to exceed 30 seconds)# so it looks like this
    *61*+12345678910*11*25# SEND. You will get a confirmation after that.

    That code will make the phone ring for 25 seconds before it goes to voicemail. You can change it at any time, just re-enter the code with a different number, like 20 or 30. To get the +, you usually use the zero key.
