Re: Call forwarding

The reason I ask is that I am trying to test this as I am heading to USA and all I get is a busy signal.  Perhaps PM needs a little time to register the USA number.


Is your US paln cover roaming in Canada?

It may be the reason for the busy signal.

You can call forward to a US hotel number(not the tool free number) to test your plan.

If this does not work, you may send a private message to moderator to get your call to US working before leaving Canada.

Re: Call forwarding

That is correct.  That is why I posted this question.  I'm trying to call my PM number from a landline and I get a weird busy signal.

Re: Call forwarding

Yes my USA plan has roaming.  I even call the USA number direct and it works fine.  I have sent a PM to the mods.

Hello community.  I currently have the $50/month 8gb unlimited can/usa talk.  My question is as follows:  Can I use call forwarding feature on my iphone to forward incoming calls from my PM phone number to my USA cellular phone number? 

 

Thx

@deputyphil you absolutely CANNOT call forward your Public Mobile number to a US phone number, regardless of what plan or add-on(s) you have.  The system will not allow it.  This is why you are getting the results you've observed.

 

EDIT: what most people do as a workaround is to forward their PM number to a free Fongo.com account and use the Fongo app on their phone to recieve calls over data.  For this to work, you need to either need to have mobile data in the USA (via one of the US Roaming data add-ons, or via a loca USA SIM card on a plan that includes data) or while you're at Wi-Fi hotspots.

Re: Call forwarding

Looking through past messages it seems that PM will only allow forwarding to a Canadian number regardless of any roaming/international package you might have.

 

You might be able to achieve what you want by using Fongo in between: Forward PM to Fongo, forward Fongo to your US number. Have never tried this myself so YMMV.

Pretty sure you'll need to have credit on your Fongo account for this.

 

Please let us know what the mods say though! Smiley Happy

Re: Call forwarding

Hello.  I just signed up with PM and do not have the option to Call Forward from the Phone Settings on my Android Phone (Galaxy S7. Android 8).  

 

Tried to use *72 and an automated message from PM says:  "You do not have TALK enabled on your plan".  

 

My plan is the $50/month Talk Unlimited Can/US.  Not sure why I'd have to buy more minutes?  Is there another way to get this to work?

What happens with other normal calling?

I don't think *72 is right.

Re: Call forwarding

@rfc1739 are you trying to call forward to another Canadian phone number?  You should be able to.

 

Are you 100% sure your phone doens't have the call forwarding?  Usually you go into the phone app, then settings (usually from the "..." menu in the app), then Addition Settings or More Settings or something, then Call forwarding.  Samsung UI phone app should have this.
