What is call forwarding?

Call forwarding or call diversion is a telephony (the working or use of telephones) feature and it is available in almost all mobiles whether it is a smartphone or normal phone.


If you use call forwarding, this has the advantage that if someone calls you and your number is busy or unreachable at the time, that person's call is transferred to another number, whichever number you have entered in call forwarding.


Uses of call forwarding

The first use of call forwarding is that if you have two phones and you can't take both phones at once, then you can transfer calls from one phone to another.


Apart from this, if your phone ever gets busy and becomes unreachable, you can use call forwarding.


You should know some important things about call forwarding. Just as you are charged for calls from your mobile, you will be charged for call forwarding.


Suppose you have activated call forwarding in your mobile, then the longer you talk, the same amount will be charged from your outgoing calls. So if you have money on your mobile then only your call will be forwarded to another number.
