Call Forwarding

Help!  I didn't turn call forwarding on purposely, but how do I turn it off? I'm disappointed in the voice quality. I've always had Sprint/Sanyo phones and the voice quality is excellent.

Is there a way to access voice mail w/o using a password?

Thanks

I believe you can turn off call forwarding by pressing *73 and press send.  Also, you can have your phone enter your voicemail password automatically.

That didn't work. Maybe I'm a klutz.

KFess,

Each carrier has differnet codes. This is from the Sprint site, via Google search.

Using Call Forwarding

With Call Forwarding, you can automatically forward all incoming calls to another phone, so they won't ring on your Sprint PCS phone or go to your voicemail. Plus, you can still make outgoing calls from your Sprint PCS phone.

These instructions work for most of our phones. If your phone is different, please consult your phone's User's Guide.

To activate Call Forwarding:

  1. Press * 7 2 on your Sprint PCS phone.
  2. Enter the ten-digit phone number (area code + telephone number) of the phone you want your calls forwarded to.
  3. Press TALK (a tone will confirm that Call Forwarding is active).

To deactivate Call Forwarding:

  1. Press * 7 2 0.
  2. Press TALK (a tone will confirm the deactivation).

Note: Call Forwarding calls are charged an extra rate of $0.20 per minute, plus any applicable long-distance charges.

 
 
If this resolves your problem, please take a minute to resolve the thread using the options by the Kudo's star.
Thanks!

Re: Call Forwarding

Thanks, but this is a Verizon and I think *73 should work.

Re: Call Forwarding

This is from the Verizon site:

To Activate:

  1. Press *72.
  2. Enter the phone number where you want calls to be forwarded. (e.g. *72-908-123-4567).
  3. Press SEND and wait for confirmation. You should hear a confirmation tone or a message.
  4. Press END.


To Deactivate:

  1. Press *73.
  2. Press SEND and wait for confirmation. You should hear a confirmation tone or a message. 
  3. Press END.

If this does not work. Let us know.  Are you sure you have it enabled?  What is happening when someone tries to call you?

Re: Call Forwarding

To stop call forwarding when the phone is on...............go to options/general options

Pick ringer off and chose NEVER. There's a choice for IN Holster also.

*73 is actually a menu choice but it doesn't state what it does and it didn't work for me.

I let the Best Buy guys (where I bought it)  take care of the problem ( I didn't get smart, fast).

Thanks all.

Re: Call Forwarding

*72 ON *73 OFF, does not work for you?

Re: Call Forwarding

It treated *73 like an incorrect entry in a voice message. maybe I don't do it correctly.
