Activating Call Forwarding

You can activate Call Forwarding whenever you want your calls to be sent to another phone, including a mobile phone. Once activated, all your calls will be sent to the forwarding number you request. Each time a call is forwarded, you will hear one short reminder tone on your home phone, but you will not be able to answer the call from your home number.

1. Lift your telephone's receiver and listen for a dial tone.
2. Press *7 2.
In some areas you must use 72#
Dial 1172 on rotary or pulse-dialing phones.
3. At the tone, dial the telephone number where you want your calls transferred.
You will hear the number you entered ring. When the number is answered, Call Forwarding is activated.
4. If the call is not answered or the line is busy, hang up and call the number again within two minutes.
You will hear two short tones telling you that Call Forwarding is activated.
5. Hang up the receiver.

Quick question -- how can I pick up office phone messages from home phone? I have a passcode#, but does it work from home?


If your employer allows it, you should be able to retrieve your messages. Here is how I suspect it would work:
  1. You call your office phone number (must be a direct line)
  2. A greeting message invites you to leave a message.
  3. At the beep that indicates the begining of the recording you key in your password .
  4. The answering system (if so programmed) recognizes the code number and sets off reading a few menu options, among which is one that allows you to retrieve your messages.

But these are just speculations, I have no idea if it is implemented in your enterprise phone system. Besides, you may have an extension number, not a direct line.

I suggest you call your number and explore the menu options the caller is offered. If you do not find any that allows you to retrieve messages, that option is probably not implemented.
Maybe you should investigate the possibility to reroute the messages to your home phone. However I remind you that some employers may not like that: All that comes to the company is company property, and rerouting messages may be construed as espionage (industrial spying).

If I were in your boots, I would not let my personal (private) messages (phone, e-mail) to transit through my employer's switchboard or e-mail server.

I would suggest that you ask the phone-system resource person.

How to retrieve voice mail from another phone


The factory preset code is "11".

Call your phone from a touch tone phone. Enter your remote code (11, or whatever you set it to) during the greeting message. The number of new messages will be heard, and the new messages will be played.
