Eircom call forwarding

I would like to forward calls from my landlines to my mobile, but only after the landlines has rung out for a while!

I have rang Eircom and asked about this and was told it's not possible.

Other phone providers out there offer this services such as Imagine WiMax!

Unfortunately I can not change to them at the moment because they only offer bundles and I do not have 20 euro a month at the mo.

I'm on Eircom free line rental for 10 months at the moment and I only receive calls on the line so I'm not actually being charged anything.

I cant move to NTL either for other reasons

Is there a solution to my problem ?

Call 171

Type your pin as 1234#

Then type in your own pin.

From here you can forward calls to your mobile if they call that number.

Thanks for the reply but that was not what I asked!

I only wont the call forwarded after it has rang out long enough so that if I'm at home I can still just answer the phone.

But if after 15 rings say, I want it to then forward the call to my mobile.

Imagine WiMax uses very different technology to your eircom phone like, as such they really can't be compared as alike...the same goes for UPC

If you don't want to miss a call when you're out you can put a divert on it then.

Dial *21* your mobile number and then #. Then just take it off when you're back by dialing #21#

Cabaal I did not say they were alike! I mentioned that WiMax offered the service I wanted.
why can I not compare the 2? There technologies might be different but they both offer a phone service! which is what I am referring to.

techno-allah if you had taken the time to read the thread properly you would have seen that I am not looking to simply divert the call.

I am fully aware of *21*

If I use the divert option (*21*0851234567 #) I have to manually input the code and my number every time I leave my house and undo it when I return.

way to time consuming and completely impractical.

Well looks like it's a case of tough sh*t so if you can't take 10 seconds to do it.

Save *21*0851234567 # as a speed dial on your phone.

Almost perfect!

such a simply procedure to solve my problem.

speed dial will do nicely till I can afford to change over to WiMax

thank you very much Stench Blossoms and Sponge Bob.

thank you techno-allah also as it was your comment that got me to were I am.
