[VoiceOps] Letting a phone ring forever?

This is kind of a strange customer who makes odd requests and usually
refuses to discuss them with us. We are very hands-on about solving
business problems, but he won't tell us what he's trying to do or why.
He has resisted all suggestions for a better solution, and made us
remove the one we had implemented before (answer, tell the caller to
please hold, then ring all his phones again).
Last week I set a notification to alert me if anyone hung on for the
full 90 seconds he's set to now, and predictably, nobody has.
I wanted to sanity check myself here before I tell him this violates
industry standards and we won't do it.

>> We have a customer who has asked us to let his main line ring "forever" or at least five minutes. As a standard practice we forcefully hang up on an unanswered call at 90 seconds if the customer has turned off voicemail and auto-attendants. It seems wrong to let a line ring forever or even for minutes at a time, and I recall something in the back of my head about a traditional industry-standard limit.
