iPhone, Tutorials

Are you tired of your calls being forwarded to another number on your iPhone? Don’t worry, turning off call forwarding is a simple process that can be done in just a few steps. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of disabling call forwarding on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Phone App

To begin, locate and open the Phone app on your iPhone. The Phone app is typically found on the home screen and is represented by a green icon with a white phone receiver.

Step 2: Access Call Forwarding Settings

Once you have opened the Phone app, tap on the “Keypad” tab at the bottom of the screen. This will bring up the dial pad interface.

Next, locate and tap on the “Call Forwarding” button. It is usually located at the bottom left corner of the dial pad.

Step 3: Disable Call Forwarding

After tapping on “Call Forwarding,” you will see a toggle switch next to it. If it is enabled or turned on, it means that call forwarding is currently active on your iPhone. To turn it off, simply tap on the toggle switch to disable call forwarding.


If you do not see the “Call Forwarding” button or toggle switch in the Phone app, it may be because your carrier does not support this feature or it has been disabled by your carrier.

Step 4: Verify Call Forwarding Status

To ensure that call forwarding has been successfully disabled, go back to the main screen of your Phone app and look for any indicators that suggest call forwarding is still active. These indicators may include visual cues like an arrow pointing upwards or an icon displaying a phone with an arrow. If you do not see any of these indicators, it means that call forwarding has been turned off.

Additional Tips:

If you frequently toggle call forwarding on and off, you can also set up a shortcut for easy access. Simply go to your iPhone’s Settings app, tap on “Phone,” and select “Call Forwarding.” From there, you can create a shortcut on the home screen or in the Control Center for quick access to call forwarding settings.

In Conclusion

Disabling call forwarding on your iPhone is a straightforward process that can be done within the Phone app. By following the steps outlined in this tutorial, you can easily turn off call forwarding and ensure that your calls are no longer being forwarded to another number.

Remember to always check for indicators that confirm call forwarding has been disabled. Happy calling!
