PrimeTel mobile call forwarding

Posted on August 13, 2012 in Personal and has 4 comments

As I am planning to travel very soon, I needed a way to forward all calls from my mobile to another number (which will take care of routing calls to my other number while I am abroad). Googling for PrimeTel mobile call forwarding I found this page in their FAQ, but it turned out to for landline services. No other pages in FAQ related to the problem I need to fix.

Few minutes on the phone with their operator and here are the instructions (assuming I need to redirect all incoming calls to 25666666):

To activate, dial the following from your mobile: *21*25666666*11#
To deactivate, dial the following form you mobile: ##21# (yes – double # in the begginning)

Keep in mind that call forwarding works only when redirecting to Cyprus mobile or landline numbers, no international redirects are allowed.

BTW, I am using PrimeTel mobile for few months now and I am pretty happy with everything, including 3G, nice web-portal to view call/sms/data logs, view/pay bills and so on.

    So, how will you actually solve the problem of forwarding to a foreign number? :)

    I have a direct number in the office where I forward all my calls, and then using our company infrastructure, I forward my calls via VoIP to remote phone, from where I forward all the calls to my SIM in the coutry I am travelling in. :)

    That sounds like a lot of forwarding. :)

    It does, but it makes the trick:
    - I will be using local SIM and save on rouming
    - People will be able to call my CY number
    - People calling me will be spending money only on local call
