  1. This is only for apps and widgets. I used to have the call forwarding shortcut on my homescreen, but after the latest release it was removed. Now I have to drill down into three menus (before it was just one) to set up call forwarding, and cannot shortcut it to my homescreen.
    I use the call forward at least once a day, sometimes twice, now I'm spending an inordinate amount of time doing it. PLEASE HELP.

    1. Hi Edward Korotasz,
      Thanks for coming.
      I only know two possible ways that you can do to solve this problem.
      1. Use another launcher, such as Nova launcher. This launcher has the ability to add any shortcut to the Home screen.
      2. Use app called Eazy Redirect app. This app will act as a widget that provides 1 click for call forwarding.
      Finally, let me know if one of them is works for you :)
