Hi there

I am going overseas and the communications are terrible there. I was wanting to divert all calls to another phone (telecom nz) and was wondering how I do this. A friend told me that there is a code or something. Sorry if I'm being dumb but I called the call centre and they couldn't tell me.

Thanks
N

IF from your VF or TC homeline;

http://help.vodafone.co.nz/app/answers/detail/a_id/5629


You will need to subscribe to the service by logging into 'my account' then once it is activated you can use the guide I posted above. 
Just remember you will be paying international calling rates for the divert from your NZ homeline to an overseas number. You will also most likley have to pay Telecom roaming charges for recieving the call (if that applies to your Telecom mobile plan).

It might be cheaper to call NZ via calling card and clear your Voicemail and then if urgent call those people via calling card (or mobile if your plan for roaming is cheap). 

Just remember, you wont get texts or MMS diverted at all.

If this is mobile remember that when you divert calls you will pay for those diversions. If someone calls you on your Vodafone and you send the call to another number this second "call" is charged to your account. Depending on the number of calls It may be a bit more expensive than just clearing the voice mail once every few days as suggested.

NO.

Just post what it is - landline, prepay mobile etc. and what type of number you are wanting to divert to.

It's not related to the make and model of handset so much but knowing this INFO we could tell you where the option is in the menu of the handset to divert calls

http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?topicid=36945

Diverts are for Voice calls only and not TXT / PXT

But I am confused why you need to divert it to a Telecom handset when Vodafone NZ providers roaming in the same places as Telecom and maybe a few more places

Perhaps she's going to Australia where the Telstra network is more expansive?
