does it do it every time? can you duplicate the issue? does the issue go away with the quiet ring feature disabled? can u please specify what ringer you have setup? can you test this without the "quiet ring on pickup" checked?

I believe this can be network related, too.
There is a setting somewhere on the phone in hidden menus that allows you to change how often the phone pings the tower for incomming calls. I cant remember what it is or where it is, but changing that might help...

Ahh, here it is... It's called Slot Cycle Index. It will make your phone ring Sooner, not necessarily longer and might help your issue. You do need your MSL from Sprint (programming code which you can get by calling up tech support and saying that your voicemail is dialing 999-999-9999 and need your phone re-programmed)...
HOW TO CHANGE SLOT INDEX
On your phone dialer, press ##3282#
Press "Edit Mode"
Enter your MSL (programming code)
Press "Slot Cycle Index"
Change it to "0"
You are done. I would restart your phone just to ensure everything held.
Battery life will be impacted, but it might not be by much. Your mileage may vary.

What you're suggesting is for when the phone only rings once and then voicemail kicks in right away giving you only a couple seconds to answer the call.

Re: My phone sometimes only rings once.
I have the Motorola Triumph and my phone will also only ring once, and then go silent. The vibrate function will keep going, but the ringer will not. The only remotely pertinent special apps I have are the "touchpal dialer" and "launcher pro," but i'm using the "standard" droid ringtone. Any new advice on this issue? Thanks.
