Call forwarding is a great feature for those who travel frequently or are in and out of their homes on the weekends and don't want to miss critical calls.
Call forwarding allows you to enter a number to have your calls forwarded to if their is no answer or if your line is busy. Some services allow selective call forwarding, which means only certain calls are forwarded so you don't pick up your cell phone for every telemarketer that calls while you are on vacation. Some services also allow you to select if your calls are forwarded on busy, on no answer or automatically.
Call forwarding is a great way to stay in touch while living a busy lifestyle.
If you are at home most of the time or don't get many pressing calls on your home line, call forwarding may not be a feature that is useful for you.
But if you are like most of us and need to stay in touch while out and about, it is invaluable.
