User Feature Codes
Enable Call Forwarding (*72)
This feature code is used to exclusively enable call forwarding. The default code is “*72”, and when dialed, a prompt will ask for the number to forward calls. The caller is expected to enter the phone number then press pound, at which point call forwarding is enabled and the number is read back to ensure it wasn’t misdialed. The feature code requires the caller to enter the phone number to forward to each time they use the code. Optionally they can dial the feature code as a prefix on feature code “*72-1-555-248-9715”, which will enable call forwarding to 1-555-248-9715.
Disable Call Forwarding (*73)
This feature code will disable any active call forwarding. The default code is “*73”, and when dialed, a prompt to the caller informing them call forwarding will be disabled.
Toggle Call Forwarding (*74)
The feature code “*74” will enable or disable call forwarding depending on if it is active. This feature code remembers the last number you forwarded to and enables it without asking for a new number. If the caller has never enabled call forwarding then they will be prompted for the number. Similar to the enable call forwarding feature code, they can optionally prefix the code with a new call forwarding number.
Update Call Forwarding (*56)
The update call forwarding feature code “*56” will prompt the caller to enter a new call forwarding number. This immediately replaces any number currently being used, set either by the enable or toggle feature code. The number entered is also stored for later use with the toggle feature. The status of call forwarding will not be changed by this code, so if it is disabled or enabled, it will remain so
