Default Call Forward

Please Login to Remove!

Is there anyway to setup call forwarding through BES 4.1? Seems like I can do just about everything else.

AFAIK, call forwarding can only be initiated on the device, or by the carrier if the device is not in hand.
Treat your password like your toothbrush. Don't let anybody else use it, and get a new one every six months.

Yep, that is a carrier thing. You can initiate call forwarding through a key combination on phones of any brand (e.g. #62#numbertoforwardto#). With many carriers, the forwarding is canceled after some time. If you need a permanet forwarding, you have to call the carrier.
