Call Forwarding

When you're on the go, your phone can follow you. With Call Forwarding, you can automatically forward calls to the number where you can be reached.

With Call Forwarding, you can:

  • Forward calls to another number when you can't answer your usual phone and don't want to miss an important call.
  • Forward calls to Voice Mail when you don't want to be disturbed.
  • Forward calls to your cell phone when you're out and about.
  • Forward calls to the cabin for the weekend.

Northwestel offers two types of Call Forwarding:

1. Variable Call Forwarding

When you need your calls to follow wherever you go, Variable Call Forwarding is the feature for you. With Variable Call Forwarding, you program—and can change—the number you want calls forwarded to, depending on where you will be.

Rate         $5.40 per month

2. Fixed Call Forwarding (not available with Cable Home Phone)

If you want your calls to be forwarded to the same fixed number, but want control over when the calls are forwarded, Fixed Call Forwarding is the feature for you. Northwestel will program the number to which you want calls forwarded, and you just enter a special code when you want your calls to be forwarded to that number.

Rate         $5.40 per month

Combine Call Forwarding with other features and save with the FeaturesPlus discount package.
