We’re often asked, “How do I forward calls from my cell phone to a different number?”

Usually people want to do this to send calls to another phone such as a home phone or to an international phone (see below) if you’re traveling outside the US with a rental cell phone or international prepaid SIM card.

This general call forwarding procedure gives the approximate steps to forward calls from most cell phones:

1. Scroll through your main menu on your home screen and select the “Settings” menu.
2. Click “Call Settings” within the “Settings” menu and select “Forwarding.”
3. Decide which calls you would like forwarded and select that option. Options usually include “All Calls,” “Missed Calls” and “When Available.”
4. Erase your voicemail number from the “Forward To” section and enter the 10-digit number of the phone you would like to forward your calls to.
5. Select “OK” and your calls will now be forwarded until you change your settings once again.

Call Forwarding Rates and Details FAQs:

“Will forwarding my cell phone calls count against my minutes?”

Answer: No. The minutes won’t count against the phone whose calls are forwarded. BUT long distance rates might apply if you don’t have a nationwide plan.

“What will the rates be if I forward my cell phone calls to an international number?”

Answer: If you forward the call to an international phone number you will pay your cell phone carrier’s per-minute rate to dial that country. It’s the same as calling that international number right from the handset.

International Dialing Sequence – when forwarding cell phone calls to an international number it is necessary to add 011 and the country code then phone number in the space where the forwarded number goes. The 011 tells the phone it is dialing an international line and the country code directs your call to the phone number in that country.

“Is there a charge to forward my calls to the Talk Abroad SIM‘s US number?”

Answer: There’s no charge from your cell phone carrier as long as you have a nationwide calling plan or a plan that allows free calls to area code 940 (the Talk Abroad’s current area code, subject to change). There is an incoming charge of 25c per minute that is deducted the Talk Abroad available SIM card balance.
