Best Trick To Extend Your Ring Time On Your Smartphone.

When you miss calls from your loved one personal alarm quite often it can be a frustrating experience. That’s why we recommend extending the ring time on your smartphone, so you have a lot more time to answer.

By default, your phone rings for 15 seconds before it diverts the call to voicemail (if you have voicemail feature switched on). The good news is you can change the length of your ring time by increments of five seconds, up to 30 seconds.

The above code for belong can work for Android phones.
Belong mobile plans have voice2Txt service instead of voicemail.

Voice2Txt converts compatible voice messages, up to 10 seconds long, to text and sends them straight to your mobile as a text message.
You could raise a support request via your belong account to extend the ring time.
There are pit fall in extending the ring time though, callers might not be able to leave a voice message on the voice2text service. Hopefully they realise this is not ideal for customers sooner reather than later but i can’t see them changing it any time soon. Belong is owned by telstra, there budget brand but you get what you pay for.
You can verify the amount of time the phone rings for by dialing *#61# then press send, or you can reset back to default 15 seconds by dialing ##004# then press send.

Check call waiting status – *#43#, send/call

Tried this for an Aldi mobile. I just get a series of error messages all of which refer to call forwarding. I tried a similar code described as for an iPhone with the same result. Any suggestions?

Belong have chosen to alter or disable the ability to change the ring time before it diverts to message to text. According to Belong it’s either on at 15 seconds of off completely.
I believe it’s more likely they have just hidden the feature but will not release any information or change the time for you these days.

What can I say??? How does a service provider survive by not providing service. Time will tell I guess.

There should be a # at the end…e.g. **61*101**30# otherwise will not work… as I found out!
