BT-1600 Cordless Call Divert

Go to solution

Hi All,

 

I wonder if someone can help me with my new phone, which is a BT-1600 Cordless.

 

I don't have anyone I can call on to phone into me during setup so that I can see what is, or isn't happening.

 

I want to set up a call divert, to operate if the call is unanswered.

But I have the answering machine set to come on too, after 10 rings as I am a bit slow-moving these days.

 

Will my call be diverted to my mobile (diverted setup to do so)  and THEN to the answering machine if I don't answer the mobile, or will it just go straight to the answering machine if I don't answer the land-line ------ in which case, if I want the calls to at least try my mobile, will that mean cutting out the answering machine?

 

Open to all suggestions, and thanks for reading this,

 

Ian

this should explain ho call diversion works

To divert your calls, follow these instructions on the telephone line you want to divert from:
To divert all calls dial: *21*(phone number you want to divert to)#
To divert any calls you don't manage to answer within 15 seconds dial: *61*(phone number you want to divert to)#
To divert calls when your phone is engaged dial: *67*(phone number you want to divert to)#
An announcement will tell you that you've set it up successfully.

your answerphone is not used

Hi John46,
So, as I thought ---- I can't incorporate the answering machine as well.
Many thanks for a quick, and helpful, reply.
