What is Call Forwarding? This setting allows you to redirect incoming calls towards another phone number. You have the option to select the number that you wish your calls to be redirect to. It can be another mobile phone number, or a land-line one. It really doesn’t matter what number you pick as long as you choose an active one. With Call Forwarding in place all calls that income to your iPhone are automatically redirected to the preset phone number. You won’t notice that someone called you! Basically your phone won’t ring and you won’t be disturbed.
Call Forwarding Setup Simply unlock your iOS device, tap Settings, scroll for Phone and access the Call Forwarding menu. Switch it ON and tap on Forward to. Now type the phone number that you wish your calls should be forwarded to. You have to know the number and input it manually because you can’t select a contact from your Contacts list. Now, tap “Back” and your Call Forwarding setup is complete!
When Does Call Forwarding Work? It’s important to know that iOS Call Forwarding works in all situations. I mean, if you complete the setup explained above, all incoming calls will be forwarded no matter if your iPhone is switched ON, has Carrier Signal, is running in Airplane Mode or is Switched Off! Call Forwarding can only be disabled if you return to its menu and deactivate it.
