Call Forwarding after "X" number of rings

Post by CDR » Sun Oct 18, 2009 5:13 pm

It would be nice to have the option to call forward to another munber after a number of rings (select 1 to 6) to cover situations where you may be going back and forth during the day and you would like the oportunity to pick up at your primary number if you are there but it would automatically forward to another number after the selected number of rings in the event you are not there. I believe some of the land line carriers call the feature "ring no answer".

Vonage has it! So can OOMA!


NO pressing "1" either.

LOL

Thank you.

I agree, and I don't think it should be a difficult option to add.

I think Multi-ring is a better solution since there's no delay for the caller to endure, but the "press 1" thing should be optional.

This was a critical feature for me with Vonage.

My wife owns her own business, and sometimes she gets calls at home that are business related. However, most calls that come in on our home phone line are meant for the family. With call forwarding after "X" number of rings, I can check callerID, and if it is a business call, I let it ring through to her business line. If it's for me, I answer it.

Now that they've fixed the "Hit 1 to answer" issue, I hope this is next on the list.
