I have the following problem: In my house, it is practically impossible to take a call on the mobile phone due to very bad mobile network connection. As soon as I am more than 2-3 meters away from any window both me and the person who called me cannot hear each other anymore. Probably the walls are made of a lot of reinforced concrete which creates interference. I wonder if there's any possibility to forward incoming calls to my landline phone whenever I am connected to the wifi in my house?

I read this article and came upon the app Call Divert but it seems that this app is full of ads. Is there any open source solution that does the same thing?

    My first thought for such things usually is tasker (not open source, but no ads etc. either). There might be other automation tools capable of that. They can act on events and states (in your case, "WiFi connected, SID xxx") and perform tasks. Not sure if any 3rd party app is allowed to do call divert in recent Android versions, with Google always taking away such things in the name of security (and yes, Call Divert is full of ads & trackers).

  • Hmm, I installed Tasker but it seems not to be straightforward to divert incoming calls with this app (diverting outgoing calls is fairly easy). I found these two pages that lead might lead to a possible solution but I don't know how to implement these suggestions into a working task (tasker-homepage, google-groups-page) Dec 22, 2020 at 18:57

    "Shall I leave this question as duplicate then?" I guess based on your reasoning you could leave this open, as my question is basically building up on this question Dec 23, 2020 at 16:32
