How to Forward Your Home Phone to a Cell Phone
Your time is valuable. You do not have time to sit around waiting at home for a phone call you might not get or are going out of town on business. Or, you have a phone plan that is very limited without features. Either way, this will get you on your way to forward a home phone to a cell phone.
Things You'll Need
- Cell phone
- Land line
Power on both of your phones to get ready to forward calls.
Make sure you have the call forwarding feature on your land line. If not, you will have to add it as part of a bundle or package or just as a separate feature. You can do this online or by calling the phone company if you have time to spare.
Press 72* and then your cell phone number. You might hear a few beeps. Check the number for accuracy. (Check with your phone company for exact forwarding digits, it varies by carrier).
Test the line by calling the home phone and seeing if does forward to your cell phone or just sends a busy signal. If not, repeat the steps.
Press 73# to take back the phone line and calls will start coming in on your home phone again.
