    This was just posted on FaceBook forums a few minutes ago. I tried it, and it works.

    Change your ringer to 30 seconds long, before vmail kicks in.

    Well I actually found something useful from the Apple forums.

    How to Extend your Ringer Time
    From: BCammaratta
    Here is what i know about the ringer time.

    First type *#61#{SEND}. Your iPhone will show where your voicemail calls are
    being to sent to. Write down the number as for you will need later. Second type
    {STAR} {STAR} 61 {STAR}{the number you just wrote down}**30#{SEND}. When you get
    the confirmation dismiss it. Finally, check that your calls are still being
    forwarded to the correct number. Type *#61#{SEND} and verify its the same number
    as before.

    There you have it, your now 30 second ringer.

    Where you see {STAR} it means *, i couldnt get it to show it correctly

    That's cool if it works.... I'll stick with the 4 rings though. I don't want people waiting too long for VM when I ignore their calls ;)

    If you want to send them straight to VM, just hit the sleep/wake button twice. :)

    Once to volume or sleep/wake silences the ring, twice to the sleep/wake button sends it directly to vm.

    Welcome to 2008. The search function hasn't been working the way it should for a long time.

    A friend told me that there is a way to call someone and go straight to their voicemail. That way if there is someone you don't actually want to get stuck in a conversation with that you have to call you can just leave a voicemail without worrying about actually talking to that person....Anyone know how to do that?

    I use to do this with Cell One. I believe they have to be the same carrier as you, and when you are in your voicemail options, you'll hear send message, then you have to type their number in, then record the message and it should work.

    However, I don't know if you can do that anymore. Like I said I used it with a smaller carrier.

    Also can you make it longer than 30 seconds if you change the 30?

    calling someone straight to voice mail is EASY.. you call your own voicemail and listen to ALL the options.. when you hear SEND A MESSAGE, you type the numvber for that one.. then it will ask you which phone number you want to send a message too, it calls their VOICE MAIL ONLY and you can leave a message WITHOUT having to speak to that person.

    i do it all the time.. i love my friernds, but sometimes not THAT much

    Honestly, if I have to wait 30 seconds for someone's VM I'll never leave one. 4 is ample.

    The question should become, do I really want to hear 30 seconds of your ringtone playing before your voicemail picks up? I can stand a few rings of someone elses phone in the office, but if I had to tolerate 30 seconds of it....:D

    JK. Cool little trick.

    Is there a way to revert back to the original settings after you do this?

    I guess you could redo the process with at "20" instead of a "30." I'm not sure if it'll work.
