Check call forwarding through the MMI Codes

Another way to check the call forwarding on your phone is through the MMI codes.

  • To check only voice call forwarding, dial the code *#67#*#*.
  • To check voice and sync call forwarding, dial the code *#21#.
  • To check all call forwarding, dial the code *#67#.

Dialling these MMI codes in the dialling pad will show whether the call forwarding is enabled on your phone.

Use third-party apps

Typically, you won’t need to rely on a third-party app for call forwarding. However, you might consider using one if you can’t locate the call forwarding settings on your phone and find it more convenient than entering a specific code in your Phone app.

Search call forwarding in your phone’s app store, and you will find a few apps like Call Divert-Forwarding and Call Forwarding.
