I'm being charged for call forwarding calls that I never make or receive


Hi there,

Apparently, over the past few years, my account has been charged for $1.35 extra each month, or more, to calls to Anaheim. I never made these calls, nor do I even receive them.

I keep waiting for this issue to resolve itself, but it hasn't yet, I'm wondering  how I can fix this? If possible re compensated, too. I'd definitely like to block it, but I don't know how.

Thanks in advance

What phone do you have? Is it a koodo phone or a phone you got from the states (ebay kijiji or private sale)? I ask because the voicemail center may need to be reprogrammed to send calls to koodo voicemail instead of whomever that phones provider was.

Per the koodo terms of service, you have one month to dispute any charges on your bill. If you have been waiting for this problem to resolve itself for a few years, good luck getting a credit for any charges older than that.
Try entering this in your phone dialer:
*#68#
Then press Send.

You may see a prompt stating "MMI Code started."  Wait a few seconds and it will return a different prompt if the Call Forwarding code is active and to which number.  If it says None, then you should be good there.

You can also try these other codes:
*#67#
*#61#

All codes listed above are for checking the status.  Codes to cancel or activate can be found in the source link below.

Hey Agnes, 

I think Chad may be on to something.

I did an internet search using the information you provided and I stumbled across an independent voicemail service called Youmail (with the number 714-204-3114).
  
If this is the number your calls are being redirected too, my recommendation would be to cancel the service as shown here http://bit.ly/1Iw0Nvs. Even if you never had an account with them, you can still deactivate call forwarding by following these instructions http://koo.do/1IfSnco (use the code for Koodo).

For futher assistance please contact our tech support department at 1-866-995-6636 (option 6 from another line).

Hope this helps!
