How can I set the number of rings before an incoming call goes to voicemail?

How can I set my iPhone4 to ring more than 3 times before going to voicemail. I keep missing calls because I can't get to the phone that fast. I read on an Apple blog that this is controlled by the service provider, namely Verizon. Looked all over your site of FAQs and couldn't find the answer.

It is set by Verizon and can't be changed.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I guess I am going to have to find another provider.

x-x, I'm sad to hear that you want to leave VZW because of this. The number of rings is standard at 5-6 rings which is approximately 30 seconds. If yours is only ringing 3 times, it may be the ringtone you have selected. Make sure to also reboot your phone often and dial *228 option 2. If still having issues, try calling yourself from another phone to see how many times it rings on that end.

I doubt another carrier can change it either.
