From your cell phone, dial *946 and send, 6 being the amount of ring. This service is not available everywhere.

Dial *#61# from your phone. Tap Send.

 

You should see a new screen that displays a bunch of information about what's getting forwarded. You should see a line under "Voice Call Forwarding" that says "Forwards to +11234567890" (where 11234567890 is an eleven digit phone number, likely different from your phone number). Write down this number and End

 

Now, dial **61*+11234567890*11*XX# and hit Send, where 11234567890 is the number that you found in step two and XX is the number of seconds you want to wait until voicemail picks up. You can set it in increments of 5, where 30 seconds is the maximum.

 

After you hang up that call, you can have someone call your phone and see if it worked. On some phones, you can dial *#61# again and see how long it's delaying your calls.

Thanks all it seems my call forwarding has been deactivated. I can't seem to use #61# I will bring the phone into telus next week, and they can figure it out. Mine has 9 rings before it goes into voice, and I miss many calls.

 

 

Thanks all

@chipmunkhaven1, make sure you are entering the exact number including the starting *. If you forget the * then it does deactivate instead of displaying the information.

 

Dial *#61# from your phone. Tap Send.

 

You should see something like this:

Depending on your phone OS you may also be able to set the delay through the settings. On Android the call forwarding when unanswered setting screen looks like this:

The setting screen is just an easy way to send the same MMI code that hgolitly described.

 

If you still have problems then post the symptoms and your phone model.
