Hey, what’s up guys, this is Kevin from NYC Subway Wireless and many people basically asked me, “How can we forward conditionally, the calls from an iPhone?” Basically, people don’t know about this, officially through the iPhone settings, we have only two options: Either you forward all the calls to a particular number or not to forward any calls.
In this blog post we will be taking a look at how to forward, conditionally, the calls.
There are around three conditions:
- If you are busy or not under the call, then the call will be diverted
- The second is, if you do not answer, which means if you do not pick up the call, then it will be diverted
- The third and the last condition is that if your number is unreachable, like the person is not able to contact you then it will be automatically diverted to a number
The number which you forward calls to might be a voicemail service number or it can be your second number, or someone else’s number.
That’s me getting right into this with you. Okay so guys once you are there with the iPhone so basically this tutorial I’m going to show you on my iPhone running iOS 8. When I talk about iOS 8 it starts from iOS 8.0 and iOS 8.1.2. My device is currently running iOS 8.1.2.
Let’s go ahead
What you need to do is first of all go into the phone application and you need to tap on ‘Keypad’. Once you are there on the keypad right over there, there is a code that you need to dial. But don’t worry, the codes are again there in the description too.
The very first code is when you want to forward your call when your number is busy. The code is something like this: star, six, seven, star, now you need to enter the number which you want to forward your call to.
In my case, I forward it to my voicemail service, or another number, so the number will be like this. Once you entered the number, what you guys need to do is that again you need to enter a code that is star, 11, hash. Once you entered the code, you just need to dial the code number, it says ‘Please wait’. You see ‘Setting Activation Successful, Voice Call Forwarding When Busy’. I have just now activated when my number will be busy, the call will be forwarded to a number. Let’s dismiss this.
Let’s go ahead with the second case, the second case is when you do not answer the call. So guys, what happens, again the call will forward if you do not answer the call. The code for this goes something like this: star, six, one, star, now you have to enter the number you want to forward the call to. The number again goes same for me. Again star, and now again the code: 11, star, 15, hash. Once you entered the code, just dial it. Please wait, and the setting activation successful, voice call forwarding when unanswered. Just tap dismiss.
Now let’s move to the third situation that is when you are unreachable or you do not have any network, and the call will be forwarded. The number is something like this: star, six, two, star, and the number, and the code is 11. Just dial it. So again it’s successful when unreachable. Just dismiss.
How to Stop Call Forwarding
So guys we have successfully activated conditional call forwarding on iPhone through three situations. Now you might be having a doubt in your mind that ‘How can we stop this?’ or ‘How can we cancel this?’ What you need to do is just go into the phone application, now how to deactivate these, the command goes something like this: if you want to deactivate when your phone is busy, just tap: hash, six, seven, hash. Just dial it. It says deactivation succeeded. Everything is deactivated in one single go. As you can see, I hope you can see this properly, it’s deactivated, deactivated, deactivated, so it’s successfully deactivated.
