Android HQ

A standard smartphone feature that many individuals, business-owners and employees heavily depend upon, is Call Forwarding. The original free-to-use service was invented by Ernest J. Bonanno in the early 1970s and has evolved significantly ever since .

For those of you who are unaware, the Android operating system as a whole makes it as easy as possible to configure and initiate this awesome feature and there’s a ton of nifty tweaks that you can use to make it as efficient as possible. 

Setting up Call Forwarding is pretty simple. It’s a matter of navigating through the built-in Settings screen, but you do have to know exactly what you’re looking for. First things first, in order to set up the service, you will need to be running Eclair (2.0) and above. Then here’s what to do:

  1. Open up Settings.
  2. Tap on the Call subheading.
  3. Locate and select Call Forwarding. 
  4. Configure the necessary scenarios for Call Forwarding to automatically activate.

Voilà! You will now notice that you have successfully configured Call Forwarding. If you run into any issues along the way, do be sure to let us know in the comments section below, and we’ll do our very best to get you back on track.
