Introduction

Call Forwarding Selective allows you to forward specific calls matching your pre-defined criteria to a different phone number. This criterion can be a list of up to 12 phone numbers, a specified time schedule, or a specified holiday schedule. All criteria for an entry must be satisfied for the call to be forwarded (phone number/day of the week/time of day). If the call is not forwarded, the call continues as if this service was not turned on.
