Here is how to cancel ALL diverts, including the divert to 443 (voicemail) if the call is unanswered. Please note, this cancels *ALL* diverts, and is a quick fix only - you'll have to turn back on, individual diverts (if the network supports them), should you need them.

 

This is a GSM standard network code:

 

Cancel ALL diverts (can't stand wasting my ££ on voicemail, to pay for someone ELSE'S message to me) ---> ##002# (send)

 

 

~~~ Please note that this code is a GSM standard, and should work for most, if not all UK networks ~~~

Call waiting activation and cancellation:

 

Activate call waiting: *43# (send)

 

Cancel call waiting: #43# (send)

 

 

 

 

Per-SMS delivery report (done manually, as O2 don't support automatic delivery reports):

 

Create your SMS, using *0# (then a space) as the first characters, then continue as normal, then send as normal, and you'll receive a delivery receipt as an SMS, when the recepient handset receives the SMS (NOT proof of reading!).

 

I guarantee this works, as I have been using it on O2 and gg for years.

Your guides, though handy for some, need to be posted in the Top Tips forum.

 

If you use the "options" feature within the threads you can ask the Eds to move them for you using the "report" feature within it.

@jimandrews produced - and maintains - a much more easily readable version of this list.

 

With due respect and acknowledgement of your efforts in cutting / pasting wherever you got your version from, it wouild be better really not to confuse the issue by producing multiple versions of the same thing.

 

In this case, @jimandrews' one has been tried and tested for a long time.

 

Regards
