I purchased myself a voip.ms phone number today, as I want the option to receive inbound calls as well as making outbounds. So far so good.
I decided I wanted to make this a “landline” for my old lady character. Every good landline has a voicemail, so I set one up.
The voicemail works too well. Now that it’s configured, every time I dial my voip.ms number from one of my other numbers I’m automatically sent to voicemail without any chance to answer the call on my softphone.
I’ve poked around voip.ms settings a bit, but I can’t find anything that’s immediately obvious that would control how long it waits for the voicemail to answer. If anybody has any tips regarding this, I would be most appreciative.
Thanks in advance!
I figured it out!
The way that Voiceover, the screen reader I use, interacts with voip.ms is kind of weird sometimes. The ring time, according to voiceover, was set to 30 seconds/6 rings. However, if I came into that box using a differnet voiceover command, I found that it was actually set to 1 second. I changed it to 30, and it seems to work like a charm, now. )
