  • If someone tries to call you while Call Forward is on, your home telephone will ring briefly to remind you that the service is activated. You can make outgoing calls, but you can’t receive any calls.
  • If you subscribe to voicemail and forward calls to an alternate number, your Rogers Home Phone voicemail won’t receive messages.
  • Only one call can be forwarded at a time. If the line is currently forwarding a call, all calls will get a busy signal until the forwarding is complete.
  • Call Forwarding can only be used to forward calls to Canadian and U.S. numbers.

If you’re subscribed to the Home & AwayTM Online Manager you can manage Call Forwarding online using your MyRogers account.
