I live in Miami, Fl and my career is T-Mobile. When I dial the *#61#, my Forward to becomes +17325043103. Is this the number that I should because it doesn't work.

The number that comes up to forward is unknown to me. It should forward to my voice mail.

Is this a joke? Why should I have to jump through hoops to do something that should be in a Settings Menu right there on the phone?
