    Default iPhone and call divert?

    OK

    I've done a couple of searches, checked the iPhone User Guide online... to no avail.

    Today I missed a call.
    Normally on all my other phones I have set my phones up to Divert to Voicemail if unanswered, if not available, etc etc etc. I leave Call Waiting ON - so don't divert calls if busy.

    I couldn't find any options on the iPhone to divert calls if unanswered / not available?
    I found Call Forwarding (but that looks like it will forward all calls - and not ring on the iPhone).

    Tried Voicemail options too, but couldn't seem to find the option there either?!?!

    It has been a long day - or am I missing something / somewhere?

    you havnt said what carrier you are with,

    but for Optus you do stuff like this -

    Optus - Personal - Setup: Voicemail

    I'm sure the other carriers have similar codes. Just a matter of finding them

    ah Telstra.

    Normally every other phone I've had you can adjust the settings on the handset though...
    Nokia even allow you to delay diversion if unanswered in 10 sec increments...
    Sony Ericcson allow changes to Unanswered, Busy, Unavailable, Busy, ALL

    yet iPhone only seems t call forward ALL calls?

    Thanks Vandozza!

    I just found a list here too
    Telstra Codes

    It didn't appear via the # 100 # menu list.
    Will try both full network codes and see how I go.
    Thanks!

    One of u guys left a message and showed us how easy u can do this settings, simply put ur sim card in an old nokia and do divert calls setting and put it back on ur iphone and u are done .
    i did it and it works perfect.

    iphone doesnt have divert calls time but there are so many smart people out there that can find a way to resolve this issue.
    thanks
