What Is Call Forwarding?

Call forwarding is an application that allows phone users to forward incoming calls to other numbers or phones. This application can be used for both landline and cell phones. *72 or *73 are the numbers that most providers use to set up call forwarding on their phones. Some providers do not require you to use phone lines from which calls are diverted. This application is very useful for people who are constantly traveling or moving, that is, who are in different places every day or every week. The cost of accessing this service depends on the service provider and the call plan.

Let’s take a closer look at call forwarding.

First, check with your service provider about call forwarding options by visiting their website or calling customer service. Phone service providers advise customers to contact their representatives to set up call forwarding services on their phones.

Before using *73 or *72 for call forwarding, you should first check with your service providers to see if they use these numbers. However, most companies use these two numbers. If they do use these numbers, simply dial *72 followed by the numbers you want to automatically forward calls to. If you dial *73, the application will be disabled.

If you dial *92 and the number for call forwarding, calls will not be answered after they have rung several times.

To disable this service, dial *93.

To divert calls that are not answered or when the signal is busy, dial *68 and the call divert number. To deactivate

This service can be disabled by dialing *88.

You can also divert calls that have received a busy signal to another number by dialing *90. In this case, the call will be forwarded to another alternative number. The service can be disabled by dialing *91.

It is important that you check and confirm the charges for the various call forwarding options in advance.
