Things to Know

  • Long distance charges apply if you forward your calls to a number outside your local calling area.
  • Unless calls are forwarded to your Fido Voice Messaging service, Call Forward minutes are always charged at a pay per use rate unless you have a Call Forwarding add-on. They never deduct from the minutes included in your monthly plan.
  • Calls can only be forwarded to a Canadian or an American (country code "1") phone number.

Unconditional Call Forwarding

No calls are received on your phone, and all incoming calls are redirected to the number you chose. Here's an exemple:

    • Whenever you’re at home and don’t want to answer two different numbers (landline and cell phone) you can simply forward all your cell phone calls to your home phone.

Conditional Call Forwarding (only available when you don’t have Voice Messaging)

Redirects calls if you’re out of reach, if you do not answer or if you’re busy. Here's an exemple:

Out of reach:

Your incoming calls are redirected to a chosen number if your phone is switched off or is outside your coverage area.

No reply:

Your incoming calls are redirected to a chosen number if you don’t answer (normally within 20 seconds).

Busy:

Your incoming calls are redirected to a chosen number when you’re already on a call.
