My iphone 4 call forwarding will not work using the *72 instructions. I have to go into Settings then Phone then Call Forwarding then turn it on or off. Is there anyway to make a shortcut on the home screen to turn call forwarding on or off?

The *72 instructions are for cdma phones. Call Forwarding for a Koodo Phone with SIM Card A number of different call forwarding scenarios are available for phones with SIM cards. For each scenario there is an associated code, but instructions remain the same: To activate: Enter the activate code below before the area code and the number you want to forward your calls to. Enter # and then press SEND (send key varies by handset). You'll see a message informing you that call forwarding has been activated. For example: Call Forwarding Unconditional to phone number 416-123-4567 dial *21*4161234567# and hit SEND     To deactivate: Enter the deactivate code and then press the SEND key. For example: Deactivate Call Forwarding Unconditional dial #21# and hit SEND *21* forwards all calls *67* forwards calls when busy *62* forwards calls when unreachable *61* forwards calls when you don't answer

Are you allowed to create direct dial shortcuts on the home screen like Android or BlackBerry 10? If so you could just add those to the home screen. OR make a contact in your contacts and Name is 000_CallForwardOn and another 001_CallForwardOff. that way they will be at the top of your contacts list.
Thank you Timo and Chad. You have put me on the right track.
