    Hi all,
    On my old Nokia N95 i had options on how and when to send calls to voicemail, eg: reject call with the red button sends to voice mail
    Out of reach- send to voicemail
    send to voicemail after 5/10/20/30 seconds etc etc etc
    Are there any options on the PRE???
    I cant seem to find any, voicemail is activated and working as i recieved a text telling me i had a new message (and i did) but i can seem to configure it as above.
    I tried ringing my number but when i reject the cal from the PRE (power twice or red button if in dialing app) it just cuts the caller off without sending to voicemail, how doi configure this??
    Surely this can be done? there are times at work when i cant answer a call but obviously would like the caller to be able to leave a message if it is important.

    No such options on Pre, as much as I know of.
    Would be very much appreciated to have such features, though.
    On my employer-provided ("standardized") Nokia E65, in excess to those you described, I can send predefined text message to caller.
    On N95 too, I presume?

    Press power button twice to send call to voice mail.

    Is that it?? what about if im not about to press the power button? surely a so called "smart phone" should include an option to divert to voicemail after a set period of time is unanswered?
    As i mentioned my old Nokia N95, infact all my old Nokia's going back a good few years had several options as far as divert to voicemail was concerned......

    Patch??

    That's it so far as I know.

    I think the issue your running into is that the Smartphone is being used less and less as a phone and more and more as a very small computer. With e-mail, text messaging and web browsing taking an equal, if not greater, slice of the pie these days. As a result Palm hasn't fully developed the phone side of things at this time.

    That said....get yourself a Google voice account. That will give you more options than you have ever had.

    If you leave the phone ringing it will go to voice mail, at least mine does. I can't remember any other option than "press red button" and "leave the phone ringing" to send calls to voice mail for my Nokia. That said it was a rather low-tech Nokia (it had, by choice, no camera for example).

    Not if you're in the UK

    Try some of the GSM codes in this link to set different options for forwarding and diverting.

    Why complicate the UI with stuff that can be done with (not well advertised) standard GSM features?
