If I activate Call Divert on No Reply, how long will it take for an incoming call to be diverted?
About 30 seconds. This gives you the choice of answering a call before it is diverted to your Voicemail - where you will receive a SMS notification if a message has been left in your inbox. Also, there will be a "missed call" indication on your phone, where you can view details such as the caller's number and time of call.
