Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

First you pick up the handset, then...
You either dial a 72X (i.e. 720, 721, 722, 723) code, followed by the extension number, or if the number you want to forward to is an outside number, you dial


and the outside number to forward to. And then hang up the handset.

To cancel call forwarding, you pick up the handset, dial 72, and hang up.

(If this answers your question sufficiently, please rate my answer. Thanks.)

I tried 720 but it didn't work. The keys. On the top of the line keys I would like to forward the answering service to those for after hours

I'm not sure what you mean by the 'top of the line keys' ?

This call forwarding depends upon what phone system your phone is connected to - since the phone system box is what does the forwarding, usually. Do you know what phone system your Panasonic VB phone station has?
