How to Undo Call Forwarding

Call forwarding allows the user to transfer his landline or cell phone to another phone on a temporary basis. This service is reversible and the service is not deactivated until the user reverses it manually. Call forwarding can be used for any length of time and for any reason and can be reversed as often as it is used. Call forwarding of a landline phone requires a monthly subscription with the phone provider for the service to be used. Forwarding of a mobile device does not incur additional charges when performed from the device.
