How can I transfer incoming calls to another phone when I am away?
Also how to cancel the call forward after I come back?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I can give you the codes @allanlethbridge! There's actually two types of call forwarding so there's different codes for each I'll go through everything in detail!
Unconditional call forwarding forwards all calls. It's even available if you have voicemail. Here's how:
To activate it: *21*[10 digit number to forward to]#
To deactivate it completely: ##21#
To cancel it but keep the number in memory: #21#
To re-establish with the number kept in memory: *21#
To check the status: *#21#
On the other hand, conditional call forwarding is available only if you do not have voicemail. Here's a table with all possible options and codes :
I hope that helps! Let us know if there's anything we can clear up
Hi Maria & KSSO
I had a problem getting these instructions from FIDO and didn't get a workable solution until my third call.
I was finally told: *21* followed by 1
followed by the 10 digit number
followed by #
wait for confirmation tone
I tried these and it worked!
to deactivate call-forwarding: #21#
All the codes you need to activate/deactivate call forwarding on your Fido Home Phone are listed in the solution above. You can also find more information about call forwarding on your Home Phone on this thread.
Were there any other codes you were looking for?
