I keep getting this message: Call forwarding Connection problem or invalid MMI code.

Just one mistake I may be making.....after all the info is entered.....how do I exit to the dial pad ? I have done numerous ways.

It's network dependent but check my solution.

Hi. 

 

Thanks, but this didn't work for me. I get "incorrect mmi code", after typing in the second command with the amended ring duration.

 

Is this code current? I have an xz3.

 

Kind regards, Dave

You might want to google your carrier network, maybe they use a different code
