Android programming - Call forwarding

In this post, I'm sharing with you the Android code to activate/deactivate call forwarding programatically.

The idea behing is to instruct the phone to send the MMI codes to tell the network operator to activate/deactivate the call forwaring. Please notice, that your operator must allow you to use this service otherwise it will not work.

In the exemple below, the call forwarding applies to all calls but you can use other options such as only when you are busy or you don't answer. You can find additional info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Call_forwarding#Keypad_codes
