  • If you selected A Mobile Phone, type in the cell phone number in E164 format which is +1 then the number, without dashes or spaces.  ex. +15551234567

10. Check the radio buttons of the options you would like to have effect the call

  • Leave Voicemail on Forwarded number – This feature will bypass the voicemail box for that user and leave it on the forwarded devices i.e Cell phone Voicemail, or Desk phone Voicemail
  • Forward direct calls only –  This will forward only calls directly dialed to your extension or direct dial number. (Ring Groups, Conferences, etc will not forward calls to your forwarding devices)
  • Keep your caller id- This will transpose the caller id to your cell phone, saying the call is coming from your number instead of the caller id of the person on the phone.
