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 — NOT INCLUDING THE COUNTRY CODE!)**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.
I also want to let you know about something I’ve launched recently which I put my heart and soul into and I think that you will enjoy.
After 12 years of using the iPhone I’ve realized how much this powerful device can also be a distraction in my life — an addiction, even. Yet the iPhone carries so much potential if only you learn to manage it properly in your life.
That’s why I decided to write a short book about everything I’ve learned, including 100 habits, apps, and accessories that help me to make the most of my iPhone for the benefit of my life and career. It’s called the iPhone Productivity Guide and you can download it here.
