How do I set up call forwarding?

Call forwarding sweetens up your existing phone service. You take one phone number and forward it to another. Simple as that!

Let’s say you have two cell phones. Carrying these in your pocket isn’t the most efficient or comfortable. With call forwarding, you can ditch one of those phones, port the number to NumberBarn and forward incoming calls to your other cell phone till the cows come home.

Or perhaps you have had the same ol’ landline number for years and years. You are moving to a new state and the new service provider can’t support that number but don’t want to lose it because everyone and their doggy has that number. You can keep that number by porting it to NumberBarn and forward calls to an existing number, like your cell phone, so you can still talk to everyone.

If you’re still scratching your head asking yourself what call forwarding is and why it even relates to you, be sure to read this guide on everything you need to know about call forwarding. Then hop back over here to get your account set up.

Sounds like a lot of work. But, you can bet the farm that it’s easy as Grandma’s blackberry pie to make this happen! Watch the video below to learn how you can use your online control panel set up call forwarding for your number.
