At Truphone, you can divert incoming calls to any fixed phone or mobile number that is the same as your Primary number. For example:

  • Calls to a UK primary number can be diverted to another UK mobile number or fixed phone.
  • Calls to a US primary number can be diverted to another US mobile number or fixed phone.
It is important to note that enabling the Call Forwarding feature means that all calls to your Truphone primary and additional numbers will be forwarded to your designated number.

Conditions To Enable Call Forwarding

There are several conditions that need to be met in order to allow a call to be forwarded to a designated number.

  • Call forwarding is available to our business-to-business and business-to-consumer customers.
  • Call forwarding is not available to customers subscribed to the Truphone Mobile Recording service.
  • The phone number must be in an international format e.g. UK +447408... or USA +1618... etc.
  • Calls cannot be forwarded to Emergency or Premium Rate numbers.
