Will that extend the ring time even though the voicemail is disabled ? I just want it to work like a landline where it rings  until I answer it or the person on the other end gives up . 😀

 @barndoor : Not possible. I don't think any provider does. I think it's a cell thing.

30 seconds of ringing (~ 6 rings) is the maximum. After 30 seconds you can have the call go to voicemail, which itself could be set to "extended absence greeting" with ability to leave messages disabled by dialing *61*3065804001**30# for instance,

 

or after 30 seconds have the call just "fail" by dialing:

*61*0000000000**30#

then

*004*0000000000# to set the other conditionals the same way.

I think @Nezgar has a conditional call forward that sends it to a phone number that justs keeps ringing.....

Thanks I expect you are right   .. i thought I was getting half a dozen rings  out of the last company   but maybe i was faster than I thought and not actually missing the first three rings . 😄

 @barndoor : iirc and until we get a confirmation from Nezgar, I'm not a great fan of the call fail. The caller would get some kind of error. I think that's rather less than ideal leaving the caller to wonder if your number is dead.

@Nezgar 

Thanks !! ...I'll give that a try  ...if I could get it up to 6 rings from the current four I'd be happy .

Yeah, it's better the set the maximum ring time to 30 seconds, and then configure your voicemail to play a custom announcement with ability to leave a message disabled. Here's how:
