You can't; it's set by Verizon at 30 seconds.

Please ad the ability to change time or better yet, rings before going to vm.

Business callers never wait 30 secs to go to vm in a busy day. That's way too long.

They then have to resort to typing a text. Very frustrating.

I've had many complaints from clients about my Verizon vm.

Jimmy, you can try the following guide line:

Customize your voicemail settings
  1. From your Home phone, wait for a dial tone, then dial *94. You should hear 2 quick beeps.
  2. Enter the number of rings (from 2 to 9 rings) you want the caller to hear before the call is transferred to voicemail.
  3. Hang up. Your number of rings will have been successfully adjusted
