Default Question :)

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys, back with another question. Is there a possibility I can shut off the "phone" features of my Bold, with out loosing my Internet capabilities? In other words, at some point of the day, I don't want want to take anymore phone calls, just let E-Mails come in. I know about the WiFi feature but I'd like to use the data plan.

Is this possible? Thanks!

Two ways:
1. Forward all calls to voicemail.
2. Create a profile where phone is set to "Do Not Disturb"

You could turn off the mobile network, as this would stop calls.
However, if you want to receive emails via data, that wouldn't work, as data is through the mobile network.

DC/DC: When you say, "forward to voice mail" you mean just press the red button? Or there's actually an option somewhere on the phone where I can automatically forward call to the voice mail? Oh and about the "profile", I'll create one and see what happens.

Midnight: That's what I thought, makes sense. So I guess it's either getting another phone or just 0 mobile network capabilities.

No, Midnight is wrong. You do not need to lose your data capabilities or get another phone.

To forward all calls:
1. Press the green phone button
2. Press the Menu key
3. Go to Options > Call Forwarding
4. Click the radio button for Forward All Calls
5. Move to where it says "Do Not Forward
6. Click the ball
7. Scroll to your voicemail center's number
8. Click the ball
9. Click the Back key
10. Click Save

All calls are now forwarded.

If you turn off mobile network, you do lose data.
I am not wrong about that.

And i did say "you could" do that.

I'm not disputing the accuracy of your statement, but you didn't answer the OP's question accurately, and you confused him.

DC, I'm setting up right now but the forwarding number is some bogus number I don't know of. Is there place on the OS where I can change the default voicemail number?

No, you don't need to (and shouldn't) change that. That is set by your carrier, and it will be different in different areas of the country. If you have multiple numbers listed, go back to Options, and under Voice Mail, you will see which one is your access number. Again, do not change this number.
