Activate Call Forwarding & Waiting in Android 9 Pie

Could you please help me enable call forwarding & waiting on my device? That’s what I repeatedly heard the last few days and I am not surprised. Call forward is a very useful feature these days. We don’t want to miss any call, and this feature makes sure it can get your call to another number. Many network providers do plugin this feature into the OS, so if you cannot find it, its because your operator has restricted it.

As it happens with call forwarding and call waiting too, both of them are supposed to be free for everyone. But you can verify that with your operator, just to make sure you are not mixing up things. If it is a paid service indeed in your area, chances are to be charged as soon as you activate them and that’s no joy coming from your Android 9 Pie device, right?

Rule this option out and then, these tutorials are waiting for you. Let’s figure out how to get this done.
