    Hi,

    I am having some woes using Call forwarding with IOS 12, and perhaps UK Vodafone.

    At first, once updating to IOS 12 on my iPhone X, I had to keep re-entering the number I want to forward the calls too. This was not the case with IOS 11 as it remembered the last number used.

    I then switched iPhones from X to XS MAX - Backed up the iPhone X and restored onto XS MAX and the same issue persisted until now.

    Now it won't even allow calls to be forwarded. I enable call forwarding, enter the number and then it switches back off. If i re-enable it again and reenter the number, it switches back off immedaitely again.

    I've rebooted, turnoff\on, hard reset the phone, used +44 #######, 0044##### with no luck.

    Any idea's. Bug in IOS 12?

    Many thanks in advanced.

    It’s working fine on my iPhone 6S Plus, iOS 12, and at&t. I enter a number, it forwards, and then stays on.

    Just tired it on my son's 6 plus and works with IOS.

    Not sure what the issue is on my X and XS Max. Just tried resetting all settings too with no such luck.

    I use the gsm codes and have a contact called call forward and cancel forward. I have them as favorites. works well for me with iOS 12 also.

    code is:
    **21*NUMBER#
    cancel is #21#
