It took me so much to squeeze this from them I decided to publish these codes here.

The guy seemed pretty keen on reminding me 4 or 5 times during the call that the codes wouldn't work along with the CallWaiting.

Of course, The codes worked without a hitch.

The call would have taken 4 minutes instead of 30.


CFNA (call Forward No Answer)

on
*10 0X XXXXXXX#

off
*710#


CFI (call Forward Immediate)

on
*11 0X XXX XXXX#

off
*711#


CFB (call Forward Busy)

On
*13 0X XXX XXXX#

off
*713#


VMS (Switch Voicemail off and on and change the Ringing time yay!)

off
*767#

on
*67#
*68xx# <----- where xx is seconds before VMS divert.

Any idea if you can have multiple diverts in place with Woosh, ie activate divert on busy and also activate divert on no answer?

Well that is very useful. I have 2 Woosh lines. One for personal use & one for business. I now have a the private line dirverted on busy to the business phone. So if two private calls come in at the same time we can answer them both. Perhaps my wife on one call & me on the other. But if no one is around to answer the private call there is no point in it going to the business line. Both phones are in the same house. If I can't answer one we can't answer the other.

Also if you were using a 3rd party answering service you could set up a different divert for busy or unanswered.

I find this all so very interesting. If you wanted all these details all you had to do is look at page 56 in your woosh quick reference guide that you received with your Woosh VIOP package, but, hey, we don't need manals do we. The other thing is the call forwarding feature is an optional ie, not free, service.

I assume you can have multiple diverts on woosh but let me test that.....


I had OCCF (Operator Controlled Call Forwarding) removed from my 021 mobile and I use that this way too. Very useful.

old_grey_geek, This post was published to be a consise guide and to assist the general public, not for an opportunity for you to bleat and as the comments show, it's been useful for some people.

Of course it's handy when you HAVE a manual! I sent it back with my broken gateway... which was simply not MAC linked to the network after hours on the phone theyt missed that!!!!! (stupid woosh)
Is also supect not all codes are there either.

Yes it's "chargeable" but not all customers will be charged for features, especially ones who get in early. I have national woosh roaming free of charge too, So don't assume.

I had to write it down anyway so simply popped it on here too!

Ultimate geek eh? Spots and glasses?

>Is also supect not all codes are there either.<
Suspect? RTFM Oh sorry, you sent it back with the "broken" gateway, do you mean the pppoE cable socket that has been a problem since roll out? Woosh says they are working on this and will have replacements as soon as poss.
I'm sure others that don't read manuals are greatful for your post but how many times do you have to be told to read instructions?
>Yes it's "chargeable" but not all customers will be charged for features, especially ones who get in early. I have national woosh roaming free of charge too, So don't assume.<

Ones who got in early? I suppose by this you mean beta testers? I got in on roll out day for the VIOP service 15 Sept. and raoming is there for the asking.

So I'm bleating? Bring it on. I'm in the mood for a flame war!!!!!

I ripped my old modem apart 2 days after getting it, the PPPoe and stupid booster cable connections were so flimsy.

it's now a concise tough little unit, half the size with a rj45 sockt, the way it's MEANT to be!
Funny, it worked so much better well after the chop. The "gateway" is the next for the chop now, no more sloppy plastic box that won't sit anywhere but in that monthrous plastic cradle thing!


Try the divert codes for me and let me know if they work!

To anyone who's been with woosh for a while, try asking for "roaming for life" and you might just get it. its amazing what companies miss. I've had free Texting phones, Free call phones, free whatever phones and once even a free landline for 2 years!
All sorts most companies are just so lax about it.

forget the flame war, i'm not in the mood.

I guess it's just the devil in me, just pulling yor chain paradoxsm. The boxes are a bit poxy but with a bit of gaffer tape and a couple of lazzy bands they seem to hold together for minutes. :-)

Old Grey Geek: Suspect? RTFM


You wouldn't believe how many people actually ask questions here, same questions easily found on the manual. That's why posts of this kind are welcome.

Old Grey Geek: So I'm bleating? Bring it on. I'm in the mood for a flame war!!!!!
Hmmm. Please no flames - doesn't go well with our Forum Usage Guidelines.

Ok, no flames.
The other thing I would like to point out to anyone who wants to hack thier woosh modems/ gateways etc. is that, once again rtfm, as of August (I think) the contract you have with Woosh states that, even though paid $95.00 for your modem and $95.00 for your gateway, the equipment remains the property of Woosh. I know this sux but it is a legal contract.

I can post a pic of the chopped modem. The box is currently at a mates house and not much to see anyway. just a plastic box with 4 connectors, USB, rj45, Power & Antenna coax.

i'll post it up shortly. (when I find it!)
