Auto answer settings

2: Seeker

Hi there!

Can anyone tell me how to alter my Auto Answer settings.  My mobile rings four times and goes to VoiceMail.  It does not give me time to manually answer the call.  My mobile is a Samsung J3 2017.

Hi @PhilKen 


You can extend the length of rings before your Voicemail starts.

All the information is in > How-do-I-change-the-length-of-time-before-a-call-goes-to-voicemail. 


" You can change how long your mobile is set to ring before going to voicemail from 5 to 30 seconds, in 5-second intervals. It's set to 15 seconds as standard.

To change the time:

  1. Dial **61*121*11*
  2. Then, before pressing call, enter the number of seconds you’d like your phone to ring for, followed by #
  3. Press Call
  4. A confirmation message will pop up on your screen with your new ring time

For example, setting it to 25 seconds would look like this: **61*121*11*25#. "
