So, I have my spangly new handset on TMob. However I have the number I want still on Orange and for various reasons it is likely to be 40 days before I can PAC the number across.

i know Orange offer a call forwarding service but IIRC it costs money to use it. Does this cost come out of my inclusive minutes, i.e. one minute forwarded is one minute of talk time or does it incur an additional cost on top of my contract?

the other thing to note is that you won't get your text messages forwarded...

If you have a "spare" WM5 PPCPE device you can use SK Schema to automatically forward messages on.

Cheers Chucky. I *think* that would mean I would need the PPC on Orange to receive and then automatically forward the calls to TMob? Unfortunately my devices on Orange are Smartphones but until I get the PAC in place I will have a spare TMob PPC. Garrrrr.

Basically, you're billed as if you dialled the call on your handset - so if you can phone the number you're diverting to and it would come out of inclusive minutes, then it will if you set that number up as an unconditional divert.

As pointed out though, SMSs aren't diverted.

Cheers Swampie. Hmmmm, that might be worth doing for a bit, then.

EDIT - Do the SMS still get delivered to the original number or do they disappear?

The network will try to deliver to the original number for a set period of time. I think its 7 days - then they will be "undelivered" and deleted from the system.

You could set one of your orange devices to forward all calls to another number (In settings, Phone, Call forwarding) but leave the handset on to check sms's anyway.

Thinking that that is probably what I will do, at least for a few days this month. Cheers Jim.
