    How do I activate call forwarding on my iPhone 5s? Am I supposed to contact my service provider or is it something which can be activated using the phone settings?

    I believe you can just enable it in the settings. Go into settings and then to phone.

    Settings> Phone> Call forwarding> Turn toggle on.

    Or for conditional forwarding use below on your phone dialer keypad.

    To forward all calls unconditionally:

    to start, enter **21*number #
    to stop, enter ##21#

    To forward calls while youre speaking to someone else( when busy)

    to start, enter **67*number #
    to stop, enter ##67#

    To forward calls if you dont answer the incoming caller within 30 seconds( when unavailable)

    to start, enter **61*number #
    to stop, enter ##61#

    To forward calls if your cell phone is switched off or is out of reach

    to start, enter **62*number #
    to stop, enter ##62#

    To cancel all preset conditions:
    enter ##002#

    You will have to press the call button to activate the codes.

    Well I just tried and apparently after adding the number on which I want the calls to be forwarded there isn't any option showing up to submit it or an option that says done. I mean after I'm done entering the number what then? There's supposed to be something like 'done' or 'submit' right?

    You will have to press the call button to activate the codes.

    And you can try by calling the old number to see if the calls are getting forwarded to the new number.

    I think you didn't get my point!
    I went to Settings >> Phone >> Call Forwarding and entered the number on which I want the calls to be forwarded but after that what? What to do when I'm done entering the number? There is no option coming that says Done or Submit or Add so how do I add the number for Call Forwarding?
    The second option that you suggested was no good either. I entered the code like you said '**62*number# and what follows is shown in the screenshot! Call forwarding on 5s-imoreappimg_20150218_113919.jpg

    For Airtel, you need to subscribe to Call forwarding and is not on by default. Someone else on Airtel too had the same problem. Check how to do it with their call centre.
