When receiving a phone call on the Blacknberry the ring period is very short before cutting to voice mail or divert.  As a result the team are constantly missing calls and having to call people back and or check voice mail.

Can we increase the number of rings?

Hello sg405222,

You can.  
I had to actually call my cell phone company (verizon) and they had to change it on their end.  

Regards,

Rogiee

This is obviously an issue affecting everyone :-)

the solution from O2 (which works) is to enter the following from the phone portion of the blackberry then hit the call button


**61*901*11*30#

901 is the voicemail number
30 represents 30 seconds of ring before the divert takes place this can be in the range of 5 - 30 in increments of 5 seconds
