I found this, but rumor has it that if you do it you can no longer
access voicemail. Anyone try this?

from your home screen, type "* 61 * (voice mail access

number) ** (time in multiples of 5 ) #" and then press SEND. For
example, if my voicemail

access number is 404-555-1212 and I want it to ring for 20 seconds
before forwarding to

voicemail, I would type: *61*14045551212**20#

Isn't this entirely dependent on the (unspecified by you) carrier ?

The following works only for GSM, not AMPS, TDMA (D-AMPS, IS-136), CDMA, or
iDEN.

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.
