Simple Call Forwarding

Forward Your Business Number To An Existing Phone Line

What is simple call forwarding?

Simple call forwarding allows you to forward your UniTel Voice number to any existing phone number or device (cell phone, landline, office phone, home phone, VoIP phone, etc.). No auto attendant, no main greeting, you’re simply forwarding your calls directly to another number.

FAQs

Customer Service & Support

1. Is simple call forwarding right for me?

It depends. If you already have a phone system in place with an auto attendant or you have a live receptionist who answers your calls for you, using simple call forwarding makes sense. If you don’t have an auto attendant in place or a live receptionist to answer calls, we recommend you set up a main greeting to provide your callers with a more professional customer experience.

 

2. Can you set up simple call forwarding for me?

Yes, absolutely. Please contact our support team and let them know you’d like call forwarding set up and they would be happy to do it for you.
