How to Make iPhone Ring Longer [iPhone Q & A]
I’m going to start an iPhone Q & A series, where I post some of the questions readers send me by email. Today’s question:
is there any way to make iphone ring longer?
How to Make Your iPhone Ring for 10 Seconds Longer
Even if your iPhone ringtone is 30 seconds long, your iPhone rings for only 20 seconds by default. To get your iPhone to ring for 30 seconds, instead of the standard 20-second ring, follow the steps below:
- Dial *#61# and touch Call.
- Jot down the phone number displayed on the screen. This is where your voicemail calls are directed to (as shown in the screenshot below).
- Dial **61*(THE NUMBER YOU WROTE DOWN)**30# and press Call.
Your iPhone should now ring longer — that is, for the full 30-second duration of your ringtone. To verify that your voicemails are still being sent to the correct place, repeat step 1 and check that the phone number matches.
