    • Call forwarding features are offered on both the first and second lines.
      • Types of call forwarding:
        • Unconditional (*72): Calls are immediately forwarded without the phone ringing.
        • Conditional: Calls that are forwarded to another number when the person who is calling you gets no answer or a busy signal.
        • Busy (*73): Calls will forward if phone is ringing busy.
        • No Answer (*74): Calls will forward if the phone not answered, or if the End key is pressed. Call forwarding charges apply when forwarding calls to other cellular or landline numbers.
        • Forward Busy and No Answer (*28): Combination of the above.
    • Unconditional Call Forwarding (*72) is charged at a flat, per-minute rate of $0.20 unless you have a Simply Everything plan.
    • Unconditional Call Forwarding cannot be set if either of the following apply:
      • Any call restrictions are added, excluding Caller ID.
      • The phone is no longer active.
    • Conditional: Calls are forwarded to another number when the person who is calling  you gets no answer or a busy signal. You can choose to set up  conditional forwarding based on the following:
      • Call Forward Busy (*74)
      • Call Forward No Answer (*73)
      • Forward Busy and No Answer (*28)
    • Call forwarding does not deplete cellular minutes included in your plan.
    • Call forwarding charges apply, except in the case of voicemail or SMS numbers.
    • Call forwrding is included at no charge in the Simply Everything plan.
