How do change the number of rings AFTER the calls goes to voice mail.  

Our current setup is incoming calls rings 3 times before going to voice mail which is fine.  The number going to voice mail is  6 which is to many.

I saw on FIOS guide there was an option 6 in personal options in voice mail.

However we do not have that option

Thanks
