Questions and answers

How much do call diversions cost?

There's no setup cost for diversions, but there are charges for calls diverted to other numbers or an operator (CALLscreen). You can use My Vodafone to check your plan for rates.

Roaming charges might apply if you’re using your phone overseas, so check out support page for more info.

What call diversions are available on prepaid?

If you’re on prepaid you can forward calls to Voicemail or Call Catcher.

You’re unable to divert calls to other numbers or services.

What numbers can I divert calls to if I’m on a monthly billed plan?

If you’re on a monthly billed service, you can divert calls to standard Australian mobile numbers through My Vodafone.

You can also set up a call diversion to a standard Australian landline number by using GSM codes.

You’re unable to divert calls to 13, 1300 and 1800 numbers.

What do ‘Unanswered’, ‘Unreachable’ and ‘Engaged/Busy’ mean?

If you don’t want every call to be forwarded, you can set up conditional diversions so that your calls are only diverted in specific situations:

  • No answer/unanswered – if your phone rings out
  • Unreachable – if your phone is off or out of coverage
  • Engaged/Busy – if you’re on another call, or you reject an incoming call

All of my calls are being diverted and my phone doesn’t ring. How do I switch it off?

If you dial 1213, this will switch off an all calls diversion and keep your conditional diversions in place.
