Default Macro?

Good afternoon,

Is there a way to automate call forwarding and unfarwarding on my 8800? I use the convenience key for activating voice dialing so I don't want to change that.

Ideally, when I turn the BB on in the morning, the phone would unforward itself automatically. That sort of thing.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Michael

No, can't be done.

You could set up address book entries to forward and cancel forwarding, then assign these to two speed dial slots. To forward, store the sequence "*72phnum" (where "phnum" is the forwarding destination) and "*720" to cancel forwarding. It wouldn't happen automatically, but at least you would have single-key convenience.

OTOH, perhaps there is an app somewhere that could auto-dial on a schedule. If not, it should be possible to write such an app. There might be a slight complication getting past the "ok to let app dial phone" confirmation dialog, but there may yet be a way...

I believe the *72 and *73 forwarding assignments are only for CDMA carriers.
They probably won't work for the OP who is on Rogers which is a GSM carrier.
