Forward Calls Option

Updated: 11/13/2019 2:28 AM

Forward incoming calls to an outside phone number or any phone number or extension on your account.

Calls forwarded to phone numbers not included in your plan may be subject to additional charges.

NOTE: If you use the Vonage Business Cloud Mobile App on your mobile phone, do not forward calls to the mobile phone's number.  This causes the mobile phone to receive two calls at the same time, immediately sending the call to the mobile phone's voicemail.
