There are many ways to forward your phone line depending on your telephone line carrier, the service that you subscribe to and the telephone system that you use.
Bell Canada Standard Line Call Forwarding:
Dial *72, you will hear a series of beeps and then dial tone. Enter in your assigned Encore TeleSolutions account number. You will then ring through to one of our Tele-Receptionists and your line is connected!
There are many ways to un-forward your phone depending on your phone service provider.
Bell Canada Standard Line Call Forward Off: Dial *73, you should hear two shorts tones followed by dead air. Hang Up, the telephone lines should now ring at your location.
This is a type of automatic call forwarding set up with your telephone line service provider. With this type of call forwarding, calls can be routed to Encore TeleSolutions after a pre-set number of rings. If you are unable to answer the call in your office by the selected number of rings that call will come to us instead of reaching your answering machine!
