    How does one change how many times your phone rings until it goes to voicemail? I have the i776, and it only rings twice, and then goes to voicemail. That is too quick for me to pull out of my pocket sometimes, and answer it. WTF? Is this something I can change here, or do I have to call someone, or is that just how it is? If that's just how it is, then it's a deal breaker for me, since It charges me 10 cents to ring, and then 10 more to check the damned voicemail because I didn't have fast hands that day. Thank you.

    Re: how to change ring number?

    I've been on the phone with boost for over an hour today, and talked to three different people. None of them helped, until I flat out asked if I can get my phone to ring more than three times, and the lady said NO. It's the network. There's nothing I or they can do. For some reason, the idot tech told me to do the same thing the guy that replied to me above said to do.

    Why in the hell is this even an option on a phone? Answer after 1 2 3 or 4 rings automatically without going to voicemail????? So say I'm not around my cell phone while I'm at home, and it just answers anyways, so the person calling can just say hello three or four times, and then hang up since I'm not around? Who thought of this?????lol.

    I've timed it, and I have about 12 seconds to answer my phone, v.s. other peoples phones that ring 5 times, and have 27 seconds to answer before going to voicemail. To me, this is a way to get people like me that pay 10 cents a minute to miss a call, and pay another 10 cents to call my voicemail, and then another 10 cents to call the person back. ****ing clever.

    Re: how to change ring number?

    Boost wil not change there number of rings before voicmail picks up i cannot answer my phone that quickly. I asked the to turn off voicemail so i don't have to check a million messages a day because i cant answer the phone in time,and they wouldn't do that either I'm going crazy this needs to be addressed by boost.

    BayAreaBooster.How many seconds does your phone ring before going to voicemail? Mine only rings for 10-12 seconds then voicmail kicks in. i cannot answer the phone that fast and despise having to check all the voicmails that I recieve because I was too late for the phone maybe its New york or east coast problem? Iv'e found a few other post complaining about the same problem.
    I need resolution if I am to stay with Boost unlimited 50....

    Re: how to change ring number?

    Like I said, I've called, and they can't do anything about it. Just have to check voice messages all the time. I think they do this for the people on the pay as you go plan, so they have to use more minutes calling their voice mail again and again. Sneaky bastards. I checked my bros phone with att, and it's about 30 to 32 seconds before going to voice mail. Mine is about 12 to 15 seconds, so half. It rings 4 times compared to my bros 7 or 8 rings before voice mail. Stupid.

    Re: how to change ring number?

    I just got a Droid and have experienced this problem with it and the Omnia I had previously. There were no settings on the phone, and I contacted Verizon to see if they could set it through the network. They said they could and tried. After they couldn't change it, they asked what state I lived in (California). They told me that it was a state regulation, and that it could not be changed. If this is true, it is total BS. I called my state representative and told them this was unacceptable. They hadn't heard of it before, but said it was possible and would look into it. I guess I am not responsible enough to set the number of rings.

    And how is that? What phone do you have? Is this 6-7 when you call your phone? It's like12 seconds, vs my bros phone with att at 30-32 seconds before going to voicemail.
