    Call Forwarding


    GSM supports four different types of Call Forwarding or Call Diversion. These are:

    1. Forward all calls
    Unconditionally forwards all calls made to your phone to another location, such as another phone number or voice mail. This setting, if activated, overrides all other types of conditional forwarding mentioned below. 
    2.Forward if busy/engaged
    Forwards calls to another location if you are using your phone and you have either disabled call waiting or if you are in the process of making an outgoing call. 
    3.Forward if no answer
    Will forward calls to another location if the call is not answered after a set period of time. 
    4.Forward if unreachable
    Forwards calls to another location if the handset is off or outside a service area. 

    The table below gives the call forwarding codes.

     Caller ID / Call Display


    If you wish to either show or hide your phone number on outgoing calls then you may either set this on your phone's menu or manually enter the code before dialing. These codes will override whatever menu setting you have on a per-call basis. 

    Do not display: #31#[phone number]
    Display: *31#[phone number]
    Status: *#31# 

    For Ethiopia users Ethiotelecom disabled this feature: you can check it the status just dial: *#31# ,service not provisioned. 

    North American GSM service providers also support the landline codes for this feature (these also work on CDMA and iDEN phones):
    Do not display: *67[phone number]
    Display: *82[phone number]

     There are also codes to show or prevent incoming numbers from being shown on your handset if you subscribe to this feature. I'm not too sure why you'd want to do this, but just in case you do: 

    Do not display: #30#
    Display: *30#
    Status: *#30#

     Call Barring


    If you wish to restrict calls that can be made or received by your handset then this is referred to as "Call Barring". All Call Barring codes are specific to your network, so you'll have to ask your service provider what [code] to enter below: 

    FeatureAllOutgoingIncomingOutgoing

  • How to get WiFi connection

    It happens that we visit places less often when we do not find an active WiFi hotspot (more importantly, a free one). Moreover, when sitting at a restaurant, the first thing we are curious about is whether the restaurant offers a free WiFi or not. Fortunately, there are many ways which one can follow to get free WiFi almost anywhere, and do it with minimal hassle. Let us check one of them out:

    When you search for available WiFi networks, you get a lot of free WiFi solutions but some protected WiFi networks as well. What if you knew the passphrase for the protected WiFi network? It would be just great!

    Maybe it would cause a problem to the person who owns it (if it is a metered connection) but you still get a free WiFi solution. So, Using this application,you do not need to ask anyone for it if the password is still the same as the user shared with the community.

Images that are not in the visible screen area will not be loaded during initial loading of the web page. Users who do not scroll down long web pages will be able to save a lot of network bandwidth that gets wasted in loading all images in the web page
