Save money on your phone bill using Call Forwarding

Paying two phone bills sure does stink. Nix that second bill and save some dough!

Here’s how our Call Forwarding service can help you.

Receive calls on a phone you already have

Transfer your existing phone number or buy a new number with NumberBarn to have calls ring from that number seamlessly on your other phone. Your callers will have no idea that they are being forwarded.

When the calls arrive on your other phone, you’ll know who is calling, whether it be business or personal.

If you’re busy, calls will be forwarded to your NumberBarn voicemail box. Audio messages will be emailed to you for easy listening.

And, you can turn your landline into a number on which your clients can text you. Every US or Canadian local number can send and receive text messages, from our mobile app or right from your computer screen, no matter where in the world you may be.

Here’s how to buy a new number and receive calls from that number on a phone you already have.

Or, bring your phone number to NumberBarn from a different provider and forward calls to an existing phone.

Don’t answer the phone right away

You, your hostess and head pizza chef over at Piggy’s Pizza Palace want to receive incoming calls. Using an auto attendant menu, you can greet every call without having to pick up the phone. Here’s how it works:

Calls to your business number ring directly to a auto-attendant menu recording.

“Thanks for calling Piggy’s Pizza Palace. For reservations, please press 1. To speak with the head pizza chef about his pie of the day, please press 2. To speak to the manager about how awesome we are, press 3. To leave us a message, stay on the line.”

  • When someone presses option 1, it will ring to the front desk for your hostess.
  • When someone presses option 2, it will ring to the head pizza chef’s cell phone.
  • When someone presses option 3, it will ring to your cell phone.

If no option is selected, the caller will be sent to the NumberBarn voicemail. Messages will be left on your account and an audio file are sent out via email.

Here’s how to buy a new number and forward calls right to an auto attendant menu.

Or, transfer a phone number from an existing provider to use with NumberBarn.

Return phone calls on your own schedule

The Call Forwarding plan gives you the flexibility to send callers straight to voicemail.

Instead of answering the call immediately, ask your callers to leave you a message. The audio file of their message is sent your way via email. You can also listen from within your NumberBarn control panel via computer or mobile app.

Return their call at your convenience using your NumberBarn number as the outgoing caller ID.

So how much does this cost?

Call forwarding starts at only $6/month for 300 minutes per month.

Need unlimited minutes? Our $19/month plan will do the trick!
