There are different ways to unforward Avaya telephones.

Call forwarding allows a person to forward their phone extension to someone else for call coverage when they are absent from their desk. There are three different methods to activate and deactivate call forwarding on Avaya phone sets. Station forwarding activation and deactivation is accomplished using either a call forward button or feature access code. Enhanced call forwarding is programmed on the station description form and changed by the system administrator. Enhanced call forwarding is usually done for forwarding extensions on a long-term basis or when someone is unable to directly access his physical telephone set.


Step 1

Press the "Call-Fwd" button on a digital phone to deactivate call forwarding to another station. The "Call-Fwd" button will have a visual indicator shown as a left or right arrow at the side of the button display or the background area shaded when the forwarding feature is active.
