How often do you get a call, finish your sentence in conversation then go to answer your phone, only to see the call divert to voicemail? Perhaps extending your phone’s ring time a little (or a lot?) would alleviate that issue for you.

Here’s a really simple way to extend the ringtone on almost any Android mobile device. You can set the ring time in 5 second increments between 15 and 30 seconds and it’s a very simple three step process:

  1. Open your dialler
  2. Enter **61*101**30#
  3. Dial

You’ll get a response that looks something like this, indicating that your setting change has been successful. There’s no limitation on the number of times you can change this setting either. So if you make the change and decide 30 seconds is too long, you can try 25 without issue.
