NTT Docomo offers a forwarding service called “Call Forwarding”.

In this article, we will introduce NTT Docomo’s call forwarding service in detail. Let’s check how to apply and how to set up after introducing the service.

Check the overview of NTT DoCoMo’s service “Call forwarding”


An application is required in advance to use “Call Forwarding” provided by NTT DoCoMo, but there is no monthly charge.

However, call charges will be incurred when the call is skipped from the forwarding source to the forwarding destination.

Calls can be forwarded to landline phones and mobile phones all over Japan, as well as phones located overseas.

Service settings can also be made from a phone other than the registered phone.

By using a 4-digit network PIN, you can operate remotely from your personal mobile phone, general telephone installed at home, public telephone, etc.

However, please note that you cannot use “Call Forwarding” if your billing plan is “ahamo”.
