Call Forwarding

Now you can transfer an incoming call to another number. Call forwarding is a great feature for the business person who wants to catch after-hours business calls at home or for anyone who does not want to miss an important call.

To Forward Your Calls

  • Lift the handset and listen for the dial tone.
  • Dial *72 (on a rotary dial phone, dial 7-2 and wait four seconds)
  • Again listen for the dial tone.
  • Now, dial the number where you wish your calls forwarded. (Speed Calling codes may be used if you also have this feature.)
  • When someone answers at the forwarded number, your Call Forwarding feature is in effect.

If there is no answer, or if the line is busy, hang up and repeat the previous steps. If you do this within two minutes, you’ll hear two beeps meaning your Call Forwarding feature is now working.
Once you have activated Call Forwarding, the phone will make one short ring each time a call is being forwarded. You are still able to make outgoing calls from this phone.
If you wish to change the number your calls are being transferred to, just deactivate the Call Forwarding (see below) and then follow the steps above for Call Forwarding

To Deactivate Call Forwarding

  • Lift the handset and listen for the dial tone.
  • Dial *73 (on a rotary dial phone, dial 7-3 and wait four seconds.)
  • Listen for two beeps. Call Forwarding is now deactivated and calls will ring on your phone.
