Why is my call automatically forwarded to other sim card when I never even activated the call forwarding feature? I don't even know who's number is the one the call is forwarded to? And I can't even disable it? I tried restarting my phone, reinstalling my simcard, and even reseting my network settings but nothing solved the issue. What am I going to do?

Hello Faith12345,

Thanks for letting us know your experience with your beloved Samsung Galaxy A72 having issues with the call forwarding feature that automatically forwarded to other SIM card when in fact this feature is not even activated on your phone. Even trying out by yourself the troubleshooting steps that you could possible do, the issue remains and you cannot disable it also. I feel you and understand where your frustration is coming from as you are worried for a device you've take care so much and the incoming calls that you might have missed. If my device is facing similar experience, I will be bothered too.

Before you try the recommendations below, be sure to check if your device's software and related apps are updated to the latest version. To update your mobile device's software, follow these steps: 

Step 1. Go to Settings > Software update.

Step 2. Tap on Download and install.

Step 3. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Step 4. Restart your device.


Call forwarding enables incoming calls to be directed to a different phone number. To enable or disable the call forwarding feature, follow the easy steps shown below.

The call forwarding feature is used to transfer calls to another number when the phone is: 

  • Busy
  • Unanswered

Step 2. Tap on the 'More' options icon (three dots).  

Step 3. Tap 'Settings' and Scroll down to 'Supplementary Services'.

Step 4.  Tap call forwarding from SIM1 or SIM2.

Step 5. Tap 'Voice Calls'.

Step 6. Choose when to forward a call from any of these options:

  • Always forward
  • Forward when busy
  • Forward when unanswered
  • Forward when unreachable

Step 7.  Enter the contact number that you would like the calls to be forwarded to.

Step 8.  Once complete tap on the 'Enable' button.

To disable tap forward when busy. Tap 'Disable'

Whenever I end a call, my call will be forwarded to an unknown number. My family even got scared when a man answered when they called me. Please help.
