A telephone function called call forwarding enables incoming calls to be sent to a different phone number. As a result, whenever someone dials the forwarded number, the call is instantly sent to the specified number.
Typically, a code must be dialed, the phone’s settings must be used, or the phone service provider’s app must be used to enable this function. People who are regularly on the go or away from their primary phone number may find it beneficial since it enables them to accept calls at another number without missing any useful ones.
