Otherwise known as "conditional call forwarding". There's a GSM code you can dial. Just google GSM codes and look for "Call Forward when Busy" "Call Forward when NA", etc....
I see Youmail can now be used in Canada. I'm trying to set it up but I have no idea how to setup "No Answer Transfer" on my iPhone. Does anyone know how?
For anyone interested, I found the codes here:
If you are in Toronto, YouMail's access number is 416-800-1111, so to forward all "conditional" calls you would type in *004*4168001111#. To cancel I just typed in #002# (cancel and retain - not sure what the difference is between that and ##002#, cancel and forget. #002# seems to forward calls back to my bell voicemail).
Works great so far. Even tells you who called if you are out of a service area (just like rogers whocalled service). This is a solution I have been looking for - for a long time.
Does anyone know if there is a fee to forward calls to YouMail's service (outside of regular minutes used)? How about if you are travelling abroad?
I would like to know the above as well.I was told by a bell rep that I would only be charged for call forwarding if it was outside my bucket of minutes - I'm a bit wary though. I use youmail as one of my fab 10 numbers.
My usage under "Local calling – unlimited minutes (minutes)" shows the following:
Call Forward Pay-Per-Use (23 minutes)
This is what the rep said since it was under the unlimited minutes (fab 10) wouldn't be charged.
Fab 10 numbers do NOT count for call forwarding, Fab 10 #s must be directly dialed to qualify.
Call Forward PPU: 25cents / min
Both ways - Bell needs to be clear / train their employees regarding such things
