    How to setup call forwarding on Red Pocket GSMA?

    I want to test out my ANDROID phone on Tello it works on all 4.

    So I thought I'd call forward (or is it conditional call forward) my RP GSMA to my Tello line.

    How do I set this set up & turn it off when I'm done? And which is it conditional or not? And is this within RP TOS?

    Thanks.

    On Verizon/page plus call forwarding is achieved by dialing *72 and the number you want to call forward to. *73 to cancel. Is there a similar function on GSMA/AT&T?

    Settings> Call>Additional settings> call forwarding..

    There’s the phone app route which is something like **21*1235556789# as an example.


    Now issue with this, is call forwarding is hit or miss depending on the device. Some need to place there sim in a iPhone to even get call forwarding enabled on redpocket GSMA. So if the above doesn’t work try borrowing an iPhone to put your sim in temporarily to set it up.

    If call forwarding won’t setup properly then you’d need to find an iPhone to set it up with

    I don't know anybody with an iphone who wouldn't think I would break or mess up their phone by inserting my SIM & doing this.




    This is the AT&T procedure I looked up:

    1. TURN ON CALL FORWARDING: Dial *21* followed by the 10 digit phone number to forward calls to, then press #.
    Note: Example: *21*1234567890# forwards your calls to the phone number 123-456-7890. Wait at least three seconds to hear a confirmation tone before ending the call.

    2. TURN OFF CALL FORWARDING: Dial #21#.
    Note: Wait at least three seconds to hear a confirmation tone before ending the call.

    It's referenced on this page:

    Which links to here:
    https://www.att.com/devicehowto/tuto...279&gsi=prqqq5
    Which shows a picture of a wireless HOME phone NOT a CELLULAR phone.
    Huh????

    Yeah that is the method. But like I said above. Redpocket GSMA users have issues with getting call forwarding setup and need to use an iPhone to set it up on there sim

    Anyone know the technical reason why it needs to be an iPhone?

    Nothing other than it just works when android it doesn’t. It’s dependant on the phone model/ make etc. Some works some doesn’t. Some weird provision or sim issue with redpocket GSMA.

    For me an iPhone it’s always worked, but android only a few phones I’ve been able to do it with.

    Redpocket Verizon call forwarding works perfectly though

    So if I set it up on an iphone.
    Then I'd need an iphone to turn off call forwarding?

    No you should be able to turn it off on android. But not 100% as I never turned mine off.

    I would test it but a few months ago I moved that line over to redpocket Verizon
