Verizon VoiceWing offers several ways to forward incoming calls from your Verizon VoiceWing phone to another phone. Unconditional call forwarding allows you to directly transfer your calls from your Verizon VoiceWing phone number to another phone number. Conditional call forwarding gives you three different ways to activate call forwarding. You can forward calls when your Verizon VoiceWing phone line is busy, when there is no answer on your Verizon VoiceWing phone, or if your Verizon VoiceWing phone happens to be off-line. By saving call forwarding settings on your Personal Account Manager, you can quickly re-direct Verizon VoiceWing calls to another number directly from your Personal Account Manager, for example your wireless phone number. Using your Personal Account Manager, call forwarding can be enabled even when you are away from your Verizon VoiceWing Phone. All call forwarding options will disable your Verizon VoiceWing voice mail, but you can continue to make outgoing calls while call forwarding is activated.
A service which allows a call to be directed to an extension other than the one that was dialed. This is accomplished by the called party programming into the phone system the extension the incoming calls should be forwarded to.
A service provided by the telephone company that allows calls to one number to be automatically re-directed to another number. Calls can be forwarded to either a local or long distance number. In either case, the line with the call forwarding is charged for the cost of re-routing the calls (if any) to the other number. When a phone is call-forwarded, it usually rings at the main location to indicate that it is being forwarded, but it cannot be answered. When call forwarding has been activated, calls can still be placed from that phone.
If you're not at home but you still want to be able to answer your calls to your home phone, you can forward them onto your mobile. Very convenient when you don't want to miss any calls. Or when you want to pretend you're somewhere you're not.
Also known as call diversion. By dialling a code an extension user can divert incoming calls to another destination. The destination may be another extension, a group of extensions, the operator, or an external number, for example a cellphone. Different types of diversion are usually possible, e.g. Diversion of All calls, Diversion on Busy, Diversion on no reply.
Call forwarding (or call diverting), in telephony, is a feature on some telephone networks that allows an incoming call to a called party, which would be otherwise unavailable, to be redirected to a mobile telephone or other telephone number where the desired called party is situated. Usually, the forwarded line rings once, to remind the customer using Call forwarding that the call is being redirected.
