Call Forwarding lets you forward your incoming calls to another phone number. Lift the handset and listen for the dial tone. Dial 72# (with a rotary phone dial 1172). You will hear four short tones, then call the number where you wish your calls to be forwarded. When someone answers the phone, Call Forwarding is working. Let that person know that they will be receiving your calls. If the number you are forwarding to does not answer, you must go through the steps again to activate this feature. Your phone will briefly ring each time your number is called. You cannot answer the calls. The ring is just a reminder that Call Forwarding is working. You will be charged long distance rates for any calls forwarded from your number to a number outside your local area. To discontinue Call Forwarding, lift the handset and listen for the dial tone. Dial 73# (with a rotary phone dial 1173). Listen for a confirmation tone. Call Forwarding is discontinued.
