Are you tired of forwarding calls on your Android device and want to learn how to unforward them? You’ve come to the right place. This tutorial will guide you through the simple steps to unforward calls on your Android device.

Step 1: Open the Phone App

To begin, locate and open the “Phone” app on your Android device. This app icon usually resembles a telephone handset and can be found either on your home screen or in the app drawer.

Step 2: Access Call Settings

Once you have opened the Phone app, look for the three-dot menu icon (usually located in the top-right corner) and tap on it. A drop-down menu will appear. From this menu, select “Settings” or “Call Settings”.


The exact option may vary depending on your Android device’s manufacturer or version of Android.

Step 3: Locate Call Forwarding

In the Call Settings menu, scroll down until you find the “Call Forwarding” option. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 4: Disable Call Forwarding

Within the Call Forwarding settings, you will see various options related to call forwarding like “Always forward,” “Forward when busy,” etc. To disable call forwarding completely, select each option and disable them one by one.

  • Note:
  • If any of these options are enabled, it means that call forwarding is active for that specific scenario (e.g., if “Forward when busy” is enabled, calls will be forwarded only when your phone is busy).
  • To unforward all calls, make sure all these options are disabled.

Step 5: Save Changes

After disabling all the call forwarding options, look for a “Save” or “Apply” button in the Call Forwarding settings. Tap on it to save your changes.

Step 6: Verify Call Forwarding Status

To ensure that call forwarding has been successfully disabled, make a test call to your Android device from another phone. If the call rings on your Android device and does not get forwarded to another number, then congratulations! You have successfully unforwarded calls on your Android device.

Now you are free from call forwarding and can receive all your calls directly on your Android device.

In Conclusion

Unforwarding calls on an Android device is a straightforward process. By following these simple steps, you can easily disable call forwarding and receive all your calls directly on your phone. Remember to periodically check the Call Forwarding settings to ensure that it remains disabled, especially after any software updates or changes in preferences.
