The BlackBerry Curve 8350 is a versatile and popular multimedia capable smart phone produced by the company, Research in Motion (RIM.) Many of the multimedia settings on the BlackBerry Curve 8350 are customisable. Ringtones and ringtone properties, as well as other playback configurations, may be specified on the BlackBerry Curve 8350 through the Device Settings menu. However, the time settings determining the ring time before the call is forwarded to voicemail are configured and controlled by the cell phone service provider. These settings may be changed with most carriers by typing and sending a command from the phone number input box.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Press the green "Phone On" button located on the far left of the trackball on the BlackBerry Curve 8350.

  2. 2

    Type 61*1805637724330# into the phone number input box on a T-mobile Blackberry to set the ring time to 30 seconds before forwarding the call to voicemail. The number 30 near the end of the string indicates the number of seconds the phone will ring before the call forwards. The maximum value for this setting with most carriers is 30 seconds. Substitute your carrier's voicemail number for the "18056377243" string in the command, and then specify number of seconds for the ring.

  3. 3

    Press the green "Phone On" button to send the request to the carrier.

  4. 4

    Test the number of rings by calling the BlackBerry from another phone and verifying ring time.

Tips and warnings

  • Ensure the length of the selected ringtone is equal to or longer than the ring time specified in settings.
