How to set up call forwarding on Samsung
Samsung phones allow the user to significantly adjust any settings that he may need.
But one area that can really be adapted to the personal needs of users is, perhaps, redirection.
This is something that a manufacturer cannot configure universally. All these parameters are deeply individual.
Forwarding to Samsung
Let’s figure out how to make call forwarding using the Samsung A5 as an example.
This model is one of the most customizable phones.
But at the same time, many not very advanced users will be pleased with the fact that the phone comes in working condition right out of the box.
In the basic kit, the smartphone comes with the Android 5.1.1 operating system.
The maximum available update that the buyer will receive at home “by air”. to version 6.0.
Unfortunately, the latest Android on the device is not supported, but this does not affect the forwarding settings.
Also, this does not in any way affect the applications that can be installed so that third-party software performs, instead of the stock kernel, the same forwarding functions.
Setting up call forwarding in Samsung
Call forwarding is the process by which a smartphone redirects an incoming call on your device to the Samsung A5 or from it to any other device.
This is very useful if you are going, for example, on vacation with your family, and do not want to take all the phones with you.
In this case, for each of them, you need to set up call forwarding specifically to the phone that will be with you.
In the event that your vacation will take place outside the country, it is worth considering roaming services.

So before you think about whether you want to take at least one phone with you or if you want to devote yourself completely to rest, check out the tariffs for international calls.
Or call forwarding is useful if you want to redirect all your calls to the office while you are away.
Thus, you can call back to those people with whom you need to contact, and they will call either the secretary or the answering machine.
The forwarding settings on the Samsung smartphone are set using the Android operating system itself, using the settings that your cellular provider provides you, or using a third-party application.
How to forward calls from Android using the settings on your Samsung?
The easiest option to set up call forwarding is to do the following:
On the home screen, press the Menu button.
Next, select “Call Settings”.
Select Advanced Settings.
Select Call Forwarding, and then Voice Calls.
How to set up call forwarding
If this option is not available, you must use the forwarding options of your operator.
If the necessary menu has opened, you can choose one of four forwarding options:
Always redirect: all incoming calls are sent to the number you specified; your phone will not even respond to them.
This option overrides that all other forwarding options are disabled.
Forward if the line is busy: Forwarding when you are already talking to someone and choose not to answer a parallel incoming call.
Usually this option is used to send a call to voicemail, although you can redirect it to any number.
Forward if the smartphone is not responding: Calls are forwarded if you decide not to answer the phone. Typically, the call will be forwarded to voicemail.
Forward if the subscriber is unavailable: Calls are forwarded if the smartphone is turned off or is out of network coverage.
Also this option will be used if the phone is switched to “airplane mode”. As in the two previous cases, this option usually diverts calls to voicemail.
Select the option you are interested in.
Enter the number to which calls will be forwarded.
Or you can edit the number that is already there.
For example, you can enter your home phone number and your calls will be redirected to your home answering machine when you are out of range.
Press the Refresh key to confirm the entered number.
The forwarding status icon will appear on the screen. This will mean that all settings are entered correctly, and the function works.
To turn off call forwarding, click the “Turn off” button in the window where you previously entered the number to which calls will be redirected (see step 7 in the previous list)
Many operators also provide their hot keys for quick setup of this function.
In order to get a list of commands (they are often called DTMF teams), call back to your operator’s contact center.
