How to Deactivate Call Forwarding on iPhone

Call forwarding comes in handy when you’re unable to pick up calls and need to redirect them to another number. However, there may come a time when you no longer require this feature and need to disable it. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to deactivate call forwarding on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Phone App

Locate the phone app on your iPhone’s home screen and tap on it to launch it.

Step 2: Access the Call Forwarding Option

Once you’re in the Phone app, tap on the “Settings” icon located in the bottom right corner of the screen. Scroll down and tap on “Call Forwarding.”

Step 3: Disable Call Forwarding

To turn off call forwarding, toggle the switch next to “Call Forwarding” to the left so that it turns white. This will disable the feature and all calls will now be directed to your phone.

Alternatively, you can also disable call forwarding by dialing a code on your phone. Follow these steps:

Dial *73 on your iPhone and hit the call button. This will disable call forwarding and all calls will now be directed to your phone.

It’s important to note that disabling call forwarding may differ slightly depending on your carrier. If you’re having trouble turning off this feature, contact your carrier for assistance.
