0.3 The forwarded-to number

As indicated in GSM 02.82 the forwarded-to numbers are stored in the international format. If according to GSM 02.78 the served subscriber is provided with a Translation Information Flag (TIF-CSI) then the HPLMN shall treat the forwarded-to number transparently at the time of registration, i.e. not perform any checks or translations. In this case the forwarded-to number shall be stored in the format as it was received from the MS.

Therefore, if transferred, the forwarded-to number is transferred from the HLR to other network entities and stored in the VLR always in the format as stored in the HLR.

0.4 Cross phase compatibility

For the following supplementary services, a number of changes exist between the present document and the Phase 1 specification:

– Call forwarding unconditional;

– Call forwarding on mobile subscriber busy;

– Call forwarding on no reply;

– Call forwarding on mobile subscriber not reachable.

The main body of the present document assumes that all network entities comply with this version of the service. In each case an additional subclause (subclause x.6) defines the additional requirements for when one or more network entities or the MS complies with the Phase 1 specifications for the supplementary service procedures.
