This is convenient if you travel frequently, are out of the access zone, or simply did not have time to notify your friends and colleagues about the number change. Before setting up call forwarding on Android, make sure that your current tariff plan supports this service. You can find out from your mobile operator.
There are several options for forwarding. Therefore, if necessary, you can redirect incoming calls only in certain cases. Consider all the available options:
- Always - calls are redirected to the new number constantly, regardless of the availability of the line.
- if the subscriber is busy, calls are redirected only in cases when the current line is busy.
- if there is no answer - incoming calls are redirected only in those cases if the subscriber did not answer the call.
- if the number is not available - calls are redirected only if the current number is outside the access zone.
If necessary, you can enable call forwarding on Android in such a way as to redirect calls to different phone numbers, depending on the situation.
