Call forwarding when abroad



I don't want people ringing me to know I'm abroad. If I set up 'call forwarding' to a UK landline will people who try to call my mobile hear the UK dial tone (because its been diverted to UK number)  or the international one?

Hello @Charl7 they would hear the standard UK dialing tone while waiting for the call to connect if you set up call forwarding to a UK landline or mobile number. 🙂

Hi, how do I set up the call forwarding once I am abroad? 

I'm currently in Cyprus and want to divert all calls to a UK mobile number back home so I don't get the abroad ring tone of someone rings me. 

I've tried diverting calls and it just keeps saying "call settings error. Unexpected response from network".

Hi @Magough,


Welcome to the EE Community.


It's not possible to set up call diverts once you have left the UK.


Your phone must be connected to the EE network during setup.
