How to Use Call Forwarding

Call forwarding automatically forwards your calls to another location when you plan to be away from your telephone or you do not wish to receive any calls. Note that you, not the originating party, are billed for any toll charges when the forward-to number is outside your local area.

If you have call forwarding, it is one of three types:


Call forwarding by ring count to fixed number after (X) rings

With this option, the forward-to number and number of rings before forwards, are selected by you and permanently programmed by Mid-Rivers. Forwarding is automatic if your phone is not answered after the indicated number of rings.


Fixed call forwarding to a fixed number

With this option, the forward-to number has been selected by you and permanently programmed into Mid-Rivers' equipment.

With the phone off hook:

1. To activate this feature dial *72, wait 4 seconds for 2 bursts of dial tone, then hang up. Your phone will now ring at the number you designated.

2. To deactivate this feature dial *73, wait 4 seconds for a dial tone, then hang up. Your normal service is restored.


Variable call forwarding to any number

With this feature you select the forward-to number when you activate call forwarding.

With the phone off hook:

1. To activate this feature dial *72, wait 4 seconds, for dial tone; then dial the forward-to number and wait 4 seconds for 2 bursts of dial tone. The called number is stored and call forwarding is activated. If you wish to call the "call forwarded to number," wait another 4 seconds and the call will be placed.

2. To deactivate this feature, dial *73 and wait 4 seconds for 2 bursts of dial tone; then hang up. Normal service is restored. *For fixed and variable call forwarding, your telephone receives a burst of ringing when a call is forwarded. This indicates the forwarding feature is activated and also reminds you to deactivate the forwarding, if desired. With fixed and variable call forwarding you cannot answer your phone until you deactivate the forwarding feature, but you can originate calls.
