Before I take you through the guide, let me tell you a little bit about the Note 10 and 10 Plus.

Note 10 & 10 Plus

These handsets were released back on August 7. Samsung has introduced 2 variants of Note handsets for the very first time. Galaxy Note 10 is the lighter version and the Note 10 Plus is the top-notch/high-end variant. Note 10 and 10 Plus come with industry-altering design and features.

Samsung is using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 or the Exynos 9825 CPU inside. There is a RAM of 8GB on the Note 10 and 12GB on the Note 10 Plus. Both handsets start off with base storage of 256GB which goes up to 1TB. These phones have no headphone jack. There is a 3.5mm headphone jack.  Samsung has added a 3500 mAh battery in the Note 10 and a 4400 mAh battery in the Note 10 Plus. There is a fingerprint scanner (ultrasonic) underneath the screens of these phones. The iconic S-Pen is also there. The Note 10 and 10 Plus both have same triple camera shooters (12MP + 12MP + 16MP) at the back and as single 10MP on the front.

Those were a few highlights of the Note 10. Let’s me tell you what call forwarding is and how it works.

Call Forwarding on Galaxy Note 10

Call Forwarding is a part of supplementary services on a phone. This service is controlled by your network carrier. The purpose of call forwarding is to forward an incoming call to another number when the call goes unanswered or if your phone is busy. Call Waiting is also a part of these supplementary services.

One of the biggest drawbacks of default-enabled call forwarding on Galaxy Note 10 is, whenever someone calls you and you don’t answer the phone after 4-6 tunes, the call cuts off. That is because you have not set up the forwarding to another number.

This can really get you scratching your head because typically, the call should cut off if it goes unanswered after 10-12 tones. This happened to me on my S10 Plus and I was really, really worried about it. At first, I thought there was something wrong with my phone, but then I found that it was call forwarding in the play.

If you are facing any such problem on your phone, or you just want to utilize the Call Forwarding, you must learn how to handle it. You will now take a look at the steps to enable or disable Call Forwarding on Galaxy Note 10.
