Phone FAQs

How do I forward my work phone?

You can redirect all calls from your Cisco work desk phone to a different phone number.

  1. Press the Forward button on your phone. Depending on your phone model, it may be labeled “Forward all”, “CFwdAll” or similar.
  2. Enter the phone number to forward your calls to. For example, 907-222-2222*.
  3. Your phone will beep two times and display the number your calls are forwarded to.

To cancel forwarding, press the “Forward Off”, “Fwd Off” or similar button, or press “CFwdALL” again if it is still displayed. This depends on your phone model.
