How to Extend Ring Time On Samsung

Extending the ring time is quite an easy process. Simply open your Phone app, which is also used for calling or blocking contacts on Samsung. Below, I’m listing all the subheadings and subpoints you should follow step by step along with screenshots to increase the ring time on Samsung:

Step 1: Open the Contacts App

Step 2: Enter the Following USSD Code

To extend the ring time on Samsung, you need to enter the following USSD code. In the variable field, you have to input how many seconds you want to add. For example, if the default ring time was whatever and you want to add 20 seconds to that, you should enter “20” in the variable field.

  • **61*101**

Step 3: Enter Extension Time

Suppose you have successfully added the following USSD code. Now, to increase the time by about 2 minutes, you need to add 120 there. In 2 minutes, there are 120 seconds, so you have to add 120 in order to increase the ring time to 2 minutes.

  • **61*101**20#

So you have to add 20 whatever seconds you want after the at risk of 101  and  at the last you have to enter a hash.

Step 4: Dial This Code

So now you have to call this number, and after calling it, you will see there will be two confirmations that you will get, as you can see in the screenshot that I will provide you below. If you didn’t get the screenshots, it means it is not working for your device or this feature is not compatible with your phone. However, for all the Samsung phones which are running on Android 8 or above, it seems that this feature of increasing ringing time on Samsung would work.

Certainly, it’s time to check the results. If you see these two screenshots where it says “Successful” or shows messages like “MMI code started,” or “Call forwarding when no reply for all the basic services,” it means you have successfully extended the ring time on your Samsung device. Your changes have been applied, and your phone should now ring for the adjusted duration as per your settings.

Please ensure that you receive the expected results and that the ring time has indeed been increased according to your preferences.
