Call Forwarding Activation/Deactivation

Thursday, 25 August 2011

Call forwarding or diverting is a feature that allows an incoming call to be redirected to another number. Forwarded call is treated as out going call from where it is redirected, so both the caller and the person who redirects the call are being charged for that call.

BSNL is providing this facility for mobile users, but you can forward only to own network(BSNL mobile/land line) not to other networks. This can be activated/cancelled  either by using call settings menu provided in the phone or by dialling the following service codes.

Call forward can be enabled for:

  • All calls
  • If busy
  • If not answered
  • If out of reach/switched off

Service Codes:


Forward ServiceActivateCancel
All Calls
*21*number##21#
If busy
*67*number##67#
If not answered
*61*number##61#
If out of reach
*62*number##62#

number should be in international format i.e., +9194XXXXXXXX. If the number is voice mail no(+9117010) then call forwarding becomes missed call alert service.

Try this to avoid cell phone radiation for free:

While at home divert all your mobile calls to your land line phone, if you are in bandham plan (unlimited free calls from mobile to land line).

Online mobile/DTH/DataCard recharge from paytm.com

Sunday, 21 August 2011

Recently I came across this wonderful site, where not only you can topup your prepaid mobile but also you can Recharge your mobile. I said wonderful because it spares you from going to uncaring BSNL cusotmer service centres.

How it is different from other similar services?

We have numerous sites offering online mobile recharge, it's not actually recharge what they offer, only topup. Even if they provide recharge, it's limited to only few fixed recharge cards.

What makes paytm.com to stand out from others is enter the recharge amount and get recharge done instantly. There is no minimum amount limitation, even you can recharge with as little as Rs.7/- (BSNL 2G data RCV). No extra amount is charged for availing these services.

What you can recharge?

  • Mobile Recharge for Airtel, Vodafone, Reliance, BSNL, Idea, Uninor, Aircel, MTS, Tata Docomo, Tata Indicom, MTNL, Loop, Virgin Mobile.
  • DTH Recharge for Tata Sky, Dish TV, Airtel Digital TV, Reliance Digital TV, Sun Direct and Videocon d2h.
  • Data Card Recharge for MTS MBlaze, MTS MBrowse, Reliance Netconnect+, Tata Photon Plus, Tata Photon Whiz.

Payment Options:

You can pay by net banking of all major banks, VISA/Master debit or credit cards.

Coming to BSNL customers, you can migrate easily from one plan to another plan, recharge stvs, data rcvs, discount rcvs etc. through online at your convenience from home/office without going to BSNL CSCs.

paytm.com Android App:

If you are android mobile user, you can install this from android market. You need to have credit card to use this app for recharging as there is no facility for other payment methods.

Please let me know if you face any problem, so that all can aware of it and also before entering recharge amount make sure it is correct.

Wish you happy Recharging!!!
