Incoming calls to virtual phone numbers featuring call forwarding

A direct city number with a call forwarding feature allows you to receive calls at any location worldwide. When your virtual phone number receives an incoming call, the call is forwarded according to the chosen algorithm. The call forwarding scheme distributes all incoming calls between actual phone numbers in the pre-specified order.

If a virtual phone number is used for corporate office communications, the call forwarding feature can be set up so that all incoming calls will be forwarded to company’s city phone numbers during business hours and to the staff members’ mobile phone numbers after-hours and/or weekends. As a result, if your office phone numbers aren’t available, all incoming calls get forwarded to the mobile phone numbers of the company employees.
A virtual phone number with the call forwarding feature will allow you to receive calls in any place worldwide to solve all kinds of business issues.

Incoming calls can be forwarded to:

  • city mobile phone numbers;
  • Skype, SIP accounts;
  • virtual faxes;
  • voicemail.

Virtual phone number call forwarding may happen based on the following schemes:

  • An incoming call gets forwarded to a city/international or mobile phone number, or Sip phone.
  • An incoming call is forwarded through a complex call diversion scheme with simultaneous or consecutive calls to several phone numbers. When an incoming call is forwarded to several phone numbers at a time, the connection is established with the first one to answer the call. During consecutive call forwarding, calls are made to several numbers one by one, following the pre-specified algorithm. First, an incoming call gets forwarded to the first phone number on the list composed by a user. Then, if the first one is busy or unavailable, the call gets forwarded to the second one, and so on. You can use landline or mobile phone numbers, SIP phones or Skype accounts for consecutive call forwarding.
