    Enable call forwarding to landline, Android or iPhone. Call forwarding allows you to automatically transfer an incoming call to a different phone number. This service is useful for multiple reasons and in different situations.


    For example, setting up call forwarding on your landline to your mobile number while you are away will allow you to never miss any important calls while away from home. This also works in reverse; Whenever you are at home and have left your cell phone charging in the room, you can enable call forwarding to your landline to make sure you don't miss a call.



    This article will provide you with the steps to set up call forwarding on your desk phone, Android or iPhone devices.

    How to forward calls from the desk phone?

    • Answer the phone and dial * 21 *.
    • Wait for a beep or a prompt asking you to enter a phone number.
    • Enter the digits, starting with the area code, of the phone number to which you want to forward calls.
    • Press the # key after entering the phone number
    • Wait for confirmation after pressing the # key. This can be a beep.
    • Hang up the phone and try.

    So let's recap, the code to type on the keypad also depends on the operator, in any case, usually by typing * 21 * followed by the number you want to transfer the calls to and the # key you can activate call forwarding. In case you decide to deactivate it instead you can do it using the code # 21 #.
