New Feature please

Follow Me, Find Me – When your phone is not answered, your calls will automatically be directed to a sequence of numbers of your choice until the call is answered. You do not need to list your number to direct unanswered calls to your voicemail.

Carmen, Go to Google and take a look at Google Voice. Several of us have it to "follow and find".

GV is not precisely follow and find -- it rings all the destination phone numbers simultaneously rather than one at a time, and the caller talks to whoever answers first. That's better, I think, because it doesn't introduce the delay that follow and find would introduce.

This is also known as call hunt, which has been requested a few times.

I personally would not like the delay. I don't think callers would stay on the line long enough to go to more than 2 or 3 numbers.

Multi-Ring already gives this capability to some degree by ringing your home phones and one additional number at the same time.

You can get and setup Google Voice to ring many different numbers at the same time.
