The number that comes up to forward is unknown to me. It should forward to my voice mail.

That did not work at all. At step three I did not get a thelephonenumber. I live in Sweden and perhaps it dos not work her,

Is this a joke? Why should I have to jump through hoops to do something that should be in a Settings Menu right there on the phone?

Thanks for useful info, I contacted Virgin costumer support and they weren't able go give me the correct info. I followed the steps and it works just fine. Set it to 30 seconds

It wrks for iphone 6, but 2 rings even though you do 5secs which is 1 ring. How can it go directly to voicemai? Anyone? Thanks

hey, OKenji! 1. Mine was going straight to voicemail and THAT was the problem for me! I couldn't find my phone by calling my cell number because it was not ringing for me! (Just in case you hadn't thought of that yet!) If you put 0 for the numb of secs. in, that should work. If not, leave it blank.

I agree with everyone else, why is # of ring tones not a menu item? I guess Apple thinks we are all software developers. I have spent the last hour trying to get this done, thank you for this page, it was clear, concise, and it worked on my 5s.
