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 call customer service at AT&T, Verizon,
Sprint or any other U.S. phone provider and ask to forward your phone calls to another country, you'll find the
answer will be either no, maybe, I don't think so, or they will have to get back to you or they don't offer that
service at this time.
(as of 1/1/2018)
U.S. phone companies will only forward your cell phone or traditional landline
PSTN calls domestically
Our service will forward calls
globally to any mobile, landline, call center or VoIP/SIP in any country.
There are two requirements you must have to divert your cell phone or landline callers internationally.
- Requirement 1
You 'must' have a call forwarding feature on your existing phone that you want to forward calls from. 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. The call forwarding
feature is provided within your existing mobile phone features or through your landline service features.
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
this new virtual phone number that enables a call to be diverted internationally.
When you receive your new virtual number, simply program your call forwarding feature of your existing mobile or
landline phone to forward your calls to the new internationally capable virtual phone number.
The new virtual number will then divert your calls to any phone number you desire
- 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 140+ 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 Italy 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 number's function is to forward calls between your cell phone/landline and your final overseas destination
number -where you wish to receive the calls. It's the international call forwarding facility.
