Default Call Forwarding

Please Login to Remove!

Guys,

I have a US Blackberry on T-Mobile and now i am in the UK for good so i want to forward calls to this number to my UK BB with o2. I add the UK number in call forward on my US phone but when i ring my US number i get the message 'your call cannot be connected'.

What Ixxx8217;m i doing wrong?

I have tried various combinations ie: +447940, 07940xxx +0017940, +001447940.

I don't think you can forward US numbers Internationally. You may have to contact TMobile. You are keeping the account in the US open and paying two services?

Port your US number to Vonage and then you can forward it for free to the UK. I have that set up right now with my old US number.

Sounds interesting.... I have a Vonage acccount too(bonus).
But i have lost you somewhere, could you maybe give me some dummy notes on how to do this please.
Thanks.H


The US number is my work number so if i use Vonage, will this forward all my vonage calls to UK BB too? as that wont work for me.

I would get a second Vonage account just for your old BB number. Your company will like you because it will cost less than half of your BB bill. =)
