Note: You can control all of the conditional diverts together using *004*{NUMBER}# where "{NUMBER}" is the one you want to divert to, e.g. *004*443# for giffgaff voicemail. The conditional diverts can then be switched off and on using #004# and *004# provided that the last number has not been cleared by using a shortcode starting with ##, like the ##002# in the list above.
