How does Global Call Forwarding work?
It's simple. You must first set up an account with us. To set up an account, use the above link. You must select the city and area code of your local number, or virtual number, in Canada. Using the drop-down menu on the sign-up form (where it says "Select Your New Phone Number"), you select "Canada" and then "Toronto (+1 416)" or "Toronto (+1 437)" or "Toronto (+1 647)." You must also use the drop-down menu on the right side of the sign-up form to designate your "ring to" number (your destination number) in India.
Once your account has been set up, the virtual number is active. Your callers in Canada dial your assigned virtual number in Toronto. When dialing the virtual number you have selected, the callers are automatically connected to your India mobile number or India landline number. You can divert your calls to any telephone number in the world when and as your circumstances require. You can customize your settings and route calls anywhere in the world – when, where, and how you want it.
Can the service be used to forward calls from my
Canada mobile phone to an international number?
Yes, absolutely. Forwarding calls from your existing phone number in Canada, whether it is a fixed land line or a mobile phone with Rogers Wireless, Bell Mobility, Virgin Mobile, Telus Mobility or any other Canadian mobile provider is simple. You simply forward calls from your existing Canadian number to the Canada virtual phone number that you have purchased from us.
When callers dial your existing phone number, calls will then forward to your virtual number - which, in turn, forwards to your destination (or "ring to") number in India. There is NO delay in the call transfer. The fact that the call is being forwarded to India will be undetected by the person calling your number. In fact, we can even disguise the ring tone so that it sounds like the Canada ring tone.
