    Hey all,
    I've recently been given an Android work phone and they've managed to split it so that it has personal and work sections.
    My question is...
    Can i forward all calls and SMS' from my phone to my work phone?
    Currently I've got the calls diverted but can't work out how to divert the SMS'.
    Also, will i require my phone to still have the sim card in it to keep the diversion going?

    Cheers.

    Just to confirm, you have an iPhone for personal use and now an android fior work?

    If so, you'll need an iOS app to sync SMS's

    Hand the phone back in, get a dual active sim phone... run your own number and work number on the same phone with a joint sms inbox.

    Both are android. Mine is an S10, they've given me an A70.
    I have to use the A70 for work, this is non-negotiable. The company i work for is pretty rigid with what we got...probs a samsung deal.
    What i want is to divert all call and sms' to the work phone.
    Sorry if i wasn't clear to begin with.

    I would recommend not doing this. Keep work and personal separate.

    Ah right.
    That makes it easier. There's a few SMS sync apps out there you can try and see which work best. I haven't used them before.

    Call diverts done through your telecom will work while the Sim card is out and the phone is off.
    There's no telecom SMS divert. You'll need an app to sync/forward them. This will need the phone on and Sim card in.

    hmmm, hardly seems worth it for my situation, i wanted to kick the phone and just have the work phone.
    keeping the 2 separate are impossible as im on call 24/7 anyway.
