You can choose whether your voicemail’s are saved in the Fongo cloud, or if they’re saved on your home phone device’s answering machine. Where you want your voicemails saved should have a LOWER “rings before voicemail” setting than the other voicemail option, so that it intercepts the call first.
Simultaneous All your call forwarding numbers will ring at the same time, including your home phone number, so you can choose where to answer the call.
Sequential If you have multiple call forwarding numbers, they will ring one-by-one. If there’s no answer and no voicemail picks up, the call will route back to your Fongo voicemail.
Call Forward Options
Always Call Forward Your call forwarding settings will kick-in immediately, for every call.
Call Forward When Unavailable
Call forwarding settings will only kick-in if there is no answer on the home phone number, or if the adapter is offline.
If your home phone device is capable, you can have a 2nd phone call come to your home phone number, which you can pickup, leaving the first call on hold until you’re finished with the 2nd call that came in.
