Call Forwarding to BSNL Not Working?
If you’re using a BSNL phone, you might be wondering how to activate call forwarding. You can do this by dialing “+21” followed by your number. In other words, if you have a mobile number, you can dial *21+BSNL. After this, you can enter the number of the person you want to call into the phone’s dialer. You can also deactivate the call forwarding feature if you don’t want others to call you.
Dialing **21*Mobile Number>
When calling BSNL, you can activate call forwarding by dialing the BSNL diverts code *211#. This code is a USSD code, and it is not immediately available, but you can activate it later if you are ready to receive the calls. It will take a few seconds to activate. To activate it, go to your phone’s settings menu and tap the Call Settings option.
There, click the call forwarding condition, then tap “Always Forward.” To deactivate this condition, simply dial ##002#. If you do not receive the caller’s acceptance tone or the call forwarding tone, it might be because the service is off or you are busy on another call.
Activating the service will turn the forwarding service on, but it will only work when you’re in a call that’s not answered. If you’ve activated the Not-reachable-No-reply feature on your mobile, you’ll need an alternate phone number.
Call forwarding to BSNL is free and is available to all BSNL customers. Once activated, dial **21*Mobile Number># to stop call forwarding. If the call diverts feature is deactivated, you can call it back. To deactivate call forwarding on a BSNL mobile, follow the instructions in the table below.
Dialing **21*Airtel Number>
If you have a BSNL line, you can use call forwarding to receive all calls even if your Airtel line is off or out of reach. Just dial **21*Airtel Number> to enable this feature and enter the international country code before the contact number. In case you are using a Jio number, you can deactivate the call forwarding condition by dialing ##002#.
If your Airtel number is not available, you can use the “divert code” to divert calls to another number. This way, when the caller doesn’t answer, he/she will believe they have called the correct number. If this is not possible, he/she can also deactivate the service by dialing *61#.
Use Call Forwarding Service:
You can use a call forwarding service with Jio. It is free and can be turned on or off according to your preferences. The service works with Jio’s wings and is available on most devices. When it comes to calling forwarding, Jio is a popular choice for many people.
This service is available both on the mobile and the landline. The only downside of call forwarding is that you cannot use it on your BSNL landline. You can disable the call forwarding function with USSD codes. The deactivation codes are listed below for Airtel, Jio, and BSNL.
You can use these codes to turn off call forwarding on your Airtel line. Just dial the appropriate numbers and wait for the confirmation. If you have problems, contact your customer service team. If you have an issue with call forwarding, make sure to contact customer care for assistance.
Dialing **21*BSNL Number>
If your call forwarding to BSNL is not working when you dial **21*BSNL Number>, you need to check the conditions of the service. Before you try to activate the call forwarding, you should ensure that your number has a country code and you have set it to a number outside of India. For this purpose, you can use the USSD codes listed below:
- First, go to the settings on your device. Next, go to the Application or Call Settings menu.
- Select BSNL from the drop-down menu.
- Click the toggle switch to enable or disable the feature.
- You will then have three options to activate call forwarding.
- Once you activate it, you will see a message on the screen that says “Activated”.
For a landline number, follow the same steps as described above. To activate the service, dial the activation codes. You can also deactivate the service by switching it off in the phone settings. The same process applies to BSNL numbers.
If you do not want to use this service, dial the deactivation codes. It is not necessary to dial both the activation and deactivation codes to activate the service.
