Use call forwarding

Mobile is very handy we can bring it anywhere and use it anywhere most of the time but even if this is the case there are some circumstances that prevents us from reaching and or attending to our mobile like for example if your battery is dead, you don't have a signal, you are using your phone talking to someone else or you are in an establishment which prohibits the use of mobile phone. In the situations mentioned Call Forwarding is very handy.

Questions and Answers

I can't find my own number on my phone?

Thank you, I could use your help with 2 different issues

Some carriers do not include the number on the SIM card; so, you will see something like "Unknown" instead of the actual number. You can try another method. Call your friend from your phone. Your number will be shown on his or her screen. You can record your number in your own contact list after that.
