How do I shorten the time of transfer to the assistant?
Most providers transfer a call to your voicemail or assistant after 30 seconds. You can choose to shorten (or extend) this.

By shortening the time of transfer, more callers will stay on the phone and leave the assistant a message.
To do this, call the number below. Change the two numbers at the end of the number to change the time of transfer. In this example, it is 15 seconds (it should always be shortened or extended in blocks of 5 seconds).
