Forwarding a Call to an Extension or Device

This article will give you step-by-step instructions on forwarding a call to another extension or device using either your desk phone’s Call Forwarding Always feature or SimpleSignal’s Anywhere Feature.

Call Forwarding Always

1. Dial *72 immediately followed by the number or extension to which you would like to forward calls.

You should then hear the following: “Your call forwarding always service has been activated successfully. Thank you.” Now, any call that would normally ring at your desk phone, will instead ring on the designated extension or device you set in Step 1.

2. To deactivate this service, dial *73.

You will hear the following: “Your call forwarding always service has been deactivated successfully. Thank you.”

SimpleSignal Anywhere
