Hey Group,
I have got an O2 XDAII recently. I am not able to understand two things.
How to stop the LED blink for GPRS/GSM?
While getting an incoming call; after 5-6 rings the call gets automatically
missed?

Appreciate your help!

Best regards
Tushar

You cannot stop the blinking green led. You have to cover it, paint
it over, or physically remove it. For the night, I just keep it on
the charger, so it will be amber or green, but at least not bloody
blinking. Off the charger, it goes blinking. What's worse than that
though, is the blinking blue led for the active BT radio. That wakes
me up at night...

I believe that the short ringing period is a network setting, not done
by the phone. I may be wrong on this one though.

Hi Puff,
For the blink, I will cover the LED. I am in India. I got it from UK when
one of my friends unlocked the phone/radio for me after purchasing from O2
UK. Is it the problem of unlocking which left the voicemail setting as it
is?
If anyone has the right software to unlock; please inform.

Thanks.

Now that you asked, I checked on the phone, and there really is no
setting for the number of rings before forwarding to voice mail.
Nevertheless, I believe that this is stored on the network, rather
than in the phone, so you may want to try to make the setting longer
by putting your SIM card into a proper Nokia phone, set it to lots of
rings, save to the network, and then go back to the XDA2. Just
guessing though...

I do not think that it is an unlock problem, but if you want to try: I
have an xda2unlock.exe that I found somewhere but have never used (no
guarantees). I think it is highly inappropriate to post this kind of
binary stuff here, but you can do a search for this filename on the
net. If you cannot find it out there, then I will be happy to send it
in an email.

Cheers

I have a comment about this. With most GSM phones, you can check the
status of the conditional forwards.

First, try with the XDA's phone app and dial
*#61#
See what results it gives you.

If you get something like:
Forward if no reply is enabled to <voice mail number> for voice after
XX seconds

Then, you are in luck and you should be able to change it.

What you need to do, is to dial the following:
*61*<voice mail number>*11*20#

The 11 above means voice calls and you keep that. The 20 means 20
seconds. You can change it to whatever you like.

So, let's say your voice mail number is 222-555-6789, and you want calls
to be sent to voice mail after 15 seconds, then you would dial
*61*2225556789*11*15#

One thing you need to make sure is that your phone is not currently
forwarded or diverted to another phone number. To make sure, dial #21#
first before trying the above codes.

Good luck and let us know if it works or not.

LYJ/Puff,
Checked the settings recommended and got the message "forward if no reply is
disabled". Interestingly, I used other service provider's SIM in my XDA and
it worked fine. So I inserted my SIM in a Nokia hand set and the problem
persisted. So the problem lies in SIM and not in XDA.

When I looked at the phone setting-->services--->call forwarding--->get
settings ---> it went to read the network settings from service provider and
showed me "forward phone calls only if unavailable" to some no. which I
think is a service provider no. Since I tried uncheckin the box and it tried
writing the setting to service provider and it failed.

Anywayz, I'll call my service provider i.e. AT&T and will get this SIM
setting rectified.

Thanks for all the help extended. Really appreciate it. This is my first
communication at this place and looks like an interesting place!

Cheers
Tushar
