Can I transfer incoming calls to my iPhone without going through a carrier such as au, docomo, or Softbank?

Can I transfer incoming calls to my iPhone without going through a carrier such as au, docomo, or Softbank

I think that most iPhone users in Japan use carriers such as au, docomo, and Softbank.

Telecommunications carriers that install and operate their own communication networks and provide their own communication services are called telecommunications carriers.

In fact, these transfer settings can be made only with the iPhone without going through a communication carrier such as au, docomo, or Softbank. You don’t even need to apply for a career.

The type of transfer that can be set on iPhone is “Unconditional transfer” of “Automatic transfer” .

“Unconditional forwarding” on the iPhone is to directly forward the incoming call to that iPhone number to another smartphone, mobile phone number such as a mobile phone registered as a forwarding destination, or a landline phone.

This forwarding method doesn’t ring the source iPhone, so the call is forwarded to another number without ringing the source iPhone or having to manually forward the call.

If you are using an iPhone, you do not need to go through a carrier even with UQ Mobile or Rakuten Mobile.

In this article, iOS is updated to the latest version (as of February 17, 2022) “iOS15.3.1” as an example . You can use forwarding .

Before making transfer settings, first check the iOS version of your iPhone.

If the “System version” item confirmed in 4. above is not “13” or later, please update from “Software Update”.

After confirming the iOS of the terminal, set “automatic call forwarding”.

How to set up “automatic call forwarding”

  1. Tap “Settings” on the home screen
  2. Tap “Phone”
  3. Tap “Automatic call forwarding”
  4. Set “Call Forwarding” to (ON)
  5. Enter another phone number to forward to in “Forward to” 
  6. Setting completed

If you check the status bar in the control center, you will see an ‘automatic call transfer’ icon next to the wireless communication system icon such as ‘4G’ and ‘Wi-Fi’.

If this icon is displayed, the setting is completed.

By the way, regarding the forwarding destination phone number, this is a specification that cannot be registered for 2 or more.

Therefore, please note that it is necessary to set only one phone number as the “forwarding destination” .

Which phone can be set as a forwarding destination? Introducing compatible models

The compatible models that can be set as forwarding destinations are as follows.

  • iphone
  • Smartphone (5G/4G LTE/3G)
  • Other mobile phones/garage phones (4G LTE/3G)
  • Satellite phone (fixed line)

It seems that any phone number that is commonly used can be set as a forwarding destination.

By the way, I set my “landline phone” as a forwarding destination, but when I called the phone number of the iPhone that was set to forward, I received a call on my “landline phone”.

About ringing time settings for “Call forwarding” and remote control from other phones

If you want to set the ringing time until you are connected to the forwarding destination while the radio waves are in reach, or if you want to set up the call forwarding service remotely, these settings can be made from the iPhone’s “Settings”. not.
