The amount of time the phone rings before going to voicemail is a system standard, you are unable to change that feature. We offer that on the Nextel network since it is a GSM network. The CDMA network, Sprint, is a system standard.

Oh okay. But no, we can not change the amount of times the phone rings on the Sprint CDMA network.

Re: Can i change how many times my phone rings

This is absurd that this can not be changed now. On my first Sprint phone I was able to change the number of rings. This has been something that is phone controlled for years. Cell phone companies are over stepping their bounds by restricting something like this. This never should have been/be a system controlled feature. When the user sets a certain number of rings it then goes to voicemail. This has been an industry standard long before Cell Phones.

The "system" does not know my or your personal situation why you could answer a phone in 1 or 10 rings. It is not their decision to make. I am reporting a complaint into a supervisor at Sprint as well. This is an absurd restriction. Saying that the CDMA network cannot do this, is not an excuse nor is it acceptable. Well, hopefully Sprint will get on the ball and fix this.
