Hello. I'll be glad to help you with this issue. Is the 703 area code number an AT&T landline?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No , It was a Verizon landline that I turned into a wireless line with ATT. I have a ATT Microcell which is needed for cell phone reception and this gave me the opportunity to cancel my Verizon land line. But noe I have lost the call forwarding that I had to my cell phone.

Are you trying to transfer from one cell phone to another cell phone?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No it is a landline phone connected to a wireless transmitter which connects to the Microcell I bought from ATT to improve my cellphone reception at home.l

Will this then forward ALL calls or can I set a number of rings before it forwards the call?

I want the not answered calls to forward. If all calls are forwarded I would have to remember to forward the calls to my cell when I leave the house.and turn forwarding off when I am home.

I want only calls that are not answered after 4 or 5 rings to be forwarded. I do not want every call automatically forwarded.

I don't see this as an option for wireless calls
