Best Answer


Call forwarding service on a metro pcs cellphone is achievable. Check with your network provider for details.

Note: you need to pay $5/month for call forwarding with Ghetto PCS, it doesn't come standard the way it does with 99.9% of the other cell phone packages.

I have updated and accurate information on this. The answer used to be *74, but usually when that didn't work it was because you first had to call MetroPCS and add a features bundle for $5/month that included call forwarding options. You still have to do that--it includes some other stuff like international texting, caller ID (even if they aren't in your address book--very cool, don't think anybody else does this), etc. But the codes are different now--here's the scoop: There are 4 different forwarding codes. Unfortunately not all of them seem to work individually. To get conditional call forwarding to work for me I had to activate all 3 codes, but it does work now. In the codes when I say NUMBER it means your 10 digit phone number you want to forward to: **21*NUMBER# will activate unconditional call forwarding (not of interest to most but that's the code if you want it). ##21# turns it off. **61*NUMBER# forwards a call if not answered. **62*NUMBER# forwards a call if your phone is not reachable (turned off or out-of-network) **67*NUMBER# forwards if you are busy (that's what MetroPCS customer support told me--maybe it means if you're on a call? But it didn't seem to do that for me, fortunately, as explained below) Just entering the 61 code didn't seem to work for me, but after calling customer support again they told me to enter all three of the conditional codes. That finally made it work for me. I was afraid that I wouldn't see an incoming call if I was on a call (i.e. lose call waiting), but fortunately that didn't happen and everything works fine the way I want it--I use Google Voice and now I can answer direct cell calls on my Google Voice phones.

(I should note that I only got all this figured out after 4 conversations with customer service--each person told me something different until I got to the 4th who spent a lot of time finding the correct information, so just calling customer support is no guarantee you'll get correct instructions for this!)

In order to activate call forwarding, on any phone, you will need to do it from the phone that you are having the calls forwarded from. If your phone is not available, contact your MetroPCS representative so that they can set this feature up for you.

*74 then the area code and the number. This allows the phone to ring and for you to decide to pick up or not. or

*72 then the area code and the number. This send the call directly to the forwarding number with out your phone ringing.
