AT&T IP Flexible Reach Customer Portal: Enterprise Administrator Support

Call Forwarding - No Answer


The Call Forwarding – No Answer feature enables a user to redirect calls to another phone number when an incoming call isn't answered within a specified number of rings. (Each ring cycle lasts 6 seconds.) You must specify the forward-to number and the number of rings before forwarding.


Call Forwarding – No Answer settings are superseded by these features (if they are enabled): Call Forwarding – Selective and Call Acceptance, and Call Rejection.


Note: If enabled, the Intercept Announcement feature takes precedence over all other active features. For details, see Intercept Announcement.


If Call Forwarding – Not Reachable is set for this user, and the Call Forwarding – Not Reachable timer expires before the specified number of ring cycles for Call Forward - No Answer have played, then the Call Forward – Not Reachable settings are applied.


Forwarded callers are treated according to the Forward Calls to phone number's settings. For example, if the forwarded call isn't answered, callers may be prompted to leave voicemail for the forwarded phone number, not for the first phone number.
