Robi Call Waiting/Forward/Divert/Holding
Robi Call Waiting/Call Holding
Do you need to manage two calls at the same time? Not a problem at all!
Call Waiting lets you know when you are on a call and someone else is trying to get through to you. You will hear a tone that alerts you to the incoming call. On the other hand, the Call Holding Service allows you to put your current call on hold and either deal with the incoming call, or make a new call. It is also possible to switch alternatively from one call to the other without terminating either of the calls.
You can activate or deactivate Call Wait through the menu of most phones. Alternatively, you can use the codes below.
- To activate Call Wait and Call Hold press *43# and SEND
- To deactivate Call Wait and Call Hold press #43# and SEND
- To check if Call Wait and Call Hold are activated or deactivated press *#43# and SEND
There’s no charge for either of these services. But please look at your mobile phone manual to find out how Call Wait works on your mobile phone.
It might not always be convenient to answer the phone. So if you’re already busy on a call, cannot answer phone or just don’t want to be disturbed, you can divert your calls to your voice mail or any other number.
Call Forwarding allows an Robi Postpaid and Prepaid user to divert incoming calls to another Robi or any other number in Bangladesh including BTCL number (except international number).
