With call forwarding, you can ensure that you never miss important calls and stay accessible anytime and anywhere. You have the flexibility to set up forwarding based on your different presence status such as “When Busy,” “No Answer,” or “Always” for personalized forwarding.

Use Case of VoIP Call Forwarding
