Call Forwarding
 

Expecting a call?  Don’t have time to wait around?  Forward your calls to another number with CALL FORWARDING.  It’s great for the business person who wants to catch after-hours calls at home or for anyone on the go who does not want to miss an important call.

 

With REMOTE CALL FORWARDING, you can turn the service on or off or change the number your calls are forwarded to from any touch-tone phone.

 

SELECTIVE CALL FORWARDING allows you to forward only the calls you choose.  Select up to 10 directory numbers to be automatically forwarded.  All other numbers will not forward.

 

With CALL FORWARD-BUSY and CALL FORWARD-NO ANSWER, you can send calls to a different telephone number if your line is busy or if the call is not answered after a designated number of rings.

To use CALL FORWARDING:
  1. Pick up the phone and listen for the dial tone.
  2. Enter *72 (or dial 1172 on a rotary phone). 
  3. Listen for the dial tone.  Enter the 1+ 10-digit telephone number you wish your calls to be forwarded to, followed by #.  (SPEED CALLING 8 or 30.)
  4. If the call is answered, CALL FORWARDING is in effect.  If the call is not answered hang up and within 2 minutes repeat steps 1, 2 and 3.  When CALL FORWARDING is in effect, you will hear a confirmation tone.
