How to forward your existing mobile or landline phone to
a phone number in another country
With an International Virtual Number it's easy to forward your cell phone or landline calls to any country.
If you are a current USA customer of AT&T,
Verizon, Sprint or any other U.S. phone provider and request that they forward your existing phone line to another
country, you'll find the answer will be either:
- I don't think so
- They will have to get to you
- That type of service is not offered
U.S. and most other worldwide phone companies will only forward your cell
phone or traditional landline calls to another phone number in
the U.S. or your country -not internationally.
Our service will forward calls globally
to any mobile phone, landline or VoIP address in any country.
There are two requirements you'll need to have to divert your existing cell phone or landline calls internationally.
- Requirement 1
Your the phone number you wish to forward overseas needs to have a call forwarding feature as part of the feature
set from your mobile provider.
In other words, if you want to send your phone calls to a phone overseas, you need to have a call
forwarding feature with your existing cell phone or landline service.
Now that you've confirmed that you have a call forwarding
feature on the phone number that you wish to forward overseas, you now need an international
virtual number. It's
your new virtual phone number that enables diverting calls internationally.
How to do it
When you receive your new virtual number, simply set-up your call forwarding feature of your existing mobile or
landline phone to forward your calls to the new internationally capable virtual phone number that you selected and
The new virtual number will then instantly divert your US or other country cell
phone calls to any phone number you desire globally.
- Setting it Up
If you know the overseas phone number where you want your calls forwarded to now, that is great but not mandatory
at sign up.
If you do not know
the final overseas call destination number yet, you can temporarily set up your account with your home or office
number as your 'ring to' number. So temporarily your new virtual number will ring in on whatever number you set
up on account the registration form.
When you get to your travel destination or anytime you determine your final overseas number, simply log in to your account management online and change the temporary
'ring to' number to the real international call destination number to start receiving your calls.
Removing the virtual number and returning to normal
After you decide your call forwarding requirement is over and you
return home from your assignment, simply disable the call forwarding feature on the cell phone or landline you
diverted to the new virtual phone number.
Everything will now work as it did before. You can then cancel the virtual number because there is no continuing
use for it.
How do I buy a virtual number?
Acquire a virtual phone number here
Choose from 1000s of available countries and city numbers using the worldwide database of virtual numbers.
If you are setting up your U.S. cell phone to redirect calls abroad, it does not matter what area code you select
on the sign up form because most U.S. cell phone plans have nationwide long distance included. You could be in
Montana and choose a California virtual number without any economic consequences. A landline may be a different
story unless your landline has nationwide long distance included.
When you receive the activation email with your new virtual number, that number will already be enabled and capable
of sending calls to whatever number you submitted on the sign up form as your 'ring
to destination' number.
From the phone that you want to redirect, use the call forwarding feature offered by your cell phone company or
landline provider and set up the call forwarding number to your new virtual number which will forward your calls
You do not need to be located in the U.S. for this to work
- Our plan also works from any
country where there is virtual number availability. There are now over 150+ countries with virtual phone numbers to choose from.
For example, if you are a resident of Italy and have an Italian cell phone or landline. You could acquire a new
Italy virtual number and use the same directions already described. i.e. Simply forward your Italian mobile to
your new Italy virtual number which diverts to any phone number, globally.
You could travel to another country and have your Italy mobile or landline
callers sent to your final destination phone number located in anywhere
- In summary
The virtual numbers function is to forward calls between your cell phone/landline and your final overseas destination number -where you wish to
receive the calls. Your new virtual phone number is the international call forwarding facility. See
- Calls to your
mobile or landline will be instantly diverted to your designated 'ring to' number in any country
