    New 4S on Verizon (& new Verizon customer). Whenever there is a call, it has to ring 6 times for the voicemail to answer. Is there anyway to change that so voicemail would answer after 4 rings or immediately

    Voicemail (and voicemail ring time which affects number of rings) is a carrier feature. Call 611 and have them adjust your voicemail ring time.

    I doubt they can change that, its set like that by the carrier for all devices.

    They said nothing they could do but I might try again as I don't know if the guy I talked to knew for sure

    I remember I had AT&T change this for me a long time ago. Not sure if they do it anymore, I made it as long as possible which I think was six rings.

    When I called it was shorter, like something changed on the line or something. They really did change it.

    On GSM systems, there are a variety of user-settable features -- or I should say there used to be, I haven't tried any lately, but I've successfully used them on AT&T in the past. For more info see http://geckobeach.com/cellular/secrets/gsmcodes.php

    I'd think Verizon would have a way to adjust the time before a forward-no-answer.
