How to set the Delay before your mobile phone calls go to voicemail

Icon: Voicemail Delay



Does this happen to you?  The phone rings, you look for it, find it, and by the time you swipe to answer... the call has dropped through to your voicemail.

That delay is set on your network provider's system.  And you can change it:

You must send a long code of stars, hashes and numbers to re-program the provider's system.  It's awkward to say the least.


I got tired of looking up the GSM USSD MMI codes each time I had a new network provider so I created an App to do it for me.


I have now put that App in the Google Play store.  It's Free of charge and Free of adverts.


Help yourself.  Download it to your phone and set the voicemail delay you want.
