Don't miss your calls, just Forward them!

Call Forwarding is a standard feature that is offered on most devices.  You can refer to your User Manual for device-specific directions. You can also follow these instructions to activate and deactivate Call Forwarding.   

 
To activate Call Forwarding from your device:

1. On your wireless device, enter **21*, the 10-digit number to which you wish to forward your calls, and #. For example: **21*1234567890# forwards your calls to the phone number 123-456-7890.
2. Push the Send, Talk, or the Receiver icon.
3. You will receive a confirmation message on your wireless phone indicating the activation of your Call Forwarding was successful.

To deactivate Call Forwarding from your device:

1. Enter #21# on your wireless device.
2. Push the Send, Talk, or the Receiver icon.
3. You will receive a confirmation message on your wireless phone indicating the deactivation of your Call Forwarding was successful.

You can learn HERE or visit the AT&T Answer Center and search for “What is Call Forwarding”.

It depends what device you have, I have seen options on the aria for number of rings. My iphone4 only seems to have the option to enable or disable call forwarding. Your best bet is to contact att directly.
