Call Forwarding is a very handy feature that comes with any smartphone available in the market today. This post will guide you through setting up the feature on your new Samsung Galaxy S5 phone. It will include setting up unconditional and conditional call forwarding as well as how to cancel it.

How to Forward All Calls

This is an unconditional call forwarding guide, which means any call that is made to your number on the Galaxy S5 will be forwarded to the other number you specify without even allowing the phone to ring. Here's how to set it up:
  1. From the Home screen, tap the Apps icon.
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Scroll to 'APPLICATIONS' section and then tap Call.
  4. Tap Additional Settings then choose Call forwarding.
  5. Tap Always forward.
  6. Now enter the phone number you want to forward all calls to.
  7. Tap Turn on.

How to Forward Certain Calls

This is a conditional call forwarding guide that will walk you through filtering calls you want to forward to your other number. Here's how you do it:
  1. From the Home screen, tap the Apps icon.
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Scroll to 'APPLICATIONS' section and then tap Call.
  4. Tap Additional Settings then choose Call forwarding.
  5. Now choose your desired option: "Forward when busy," "Forward when unanswered," and "Forward when unreachable."
  6. You may now enter the phone number you want some calls forwarded to.
  7. Tap Update.

How to Cancel Call Forwarding

Assuming you already set up your Samsung Galaxy S5 to forward some / all calls to another number, this guide will walk you through turning the feature off so you can receive calls on your new smartphone.
  1. From the Home screen, tap the Apps icon.
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Scroll to 'APPLICATIONS' section and then tap Call.
  4. Tap Additional Settings then choose Call forwarding.
  5. Tap Always forward.
  6. Tap Turn off.
I hope you find this guide easy to follow and helpful.
