How can I set a 30 second delay before the call will be forwarded to VM? As of
now I only get about 19-20 seconds before the call is automatically forwarded
to VM. I miss a lot of calls because 20 seconds sometimes doesn't give me
enough time to answer a call especially if I left the phone in another room and
I have to either climb up or down a 3 story townhouse.
Any suggestions appreciated

Standard GSM codes:

Divert Voice Calls, No Answer
Delay nn seconds: max 30 seconds, in 5 second increments

Set: **61*destination*11*nn#[SEND]

Cancel: ##61*11#[SEND]

Query: *#61*11#[SEND]

May not work on all networks, but does work on Cingular.
The "destination" is the voice mailbox number, not your mobile number!
Do a Query first to get the correct destination number.

Do you have to set it first?
The below query doesn't work for me--says not available.
The shorter queries like *#61# work. But none of the longer strings with *11# in them work.

There was a recent thread about normal forwarding and the
default/global/master no-answer voice mail forwarding that is in effect
if no manual forwarding is active. The 61 code above is the "normal"
forwarding code that overrides the default to voice mail. Once you use
it to change the delay and then cancel it the account will still forward
to VM--but will the new delay time work for that or will it revert back
to the original delay? If it reverts then the OP would need to use 61
from then on just to have calls go to VM--not good.

My suggestion would be to call CS. They can change the delay to 30
seconds for the default VM forwarding for the account. They did it for
me awhile back without a quibble.

I just called Cingular, and they extended it for me.

If *#61*11#[SEND] doesn't work, then your network doesn't support this

Then I'm afraid you're out of luck.

So since I'm a Cingular customer, this quote of yours isn't exactly correct?
"May not work on all networks, but does work on Cingular."

It does work on Cingular. You may be roaming on some other network (e.g.,
ATTWS, Suncom, T-Mobile). Or you may be in an area where Cingular hasn't
implemented that feature.
