***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community! Beginning the evening of Sunday 12/4, both Communities will be placed in read-only mode. You’ll still be able to visit the Communities and browse content, but login will be disabled. On the afternoon of Monday 12/5, all users will be able to log into the new Verizon Community. We expect the new Community to be fully functional the morning of Friday 12/9. Additional details can be found in the Announcements board and under Featured Topics!

Just use immediate call forwarding.  It can be to your number, or set up free Google Voice number and have it go to a recording. 

  • Forward all calls immediately (mobile phone won’t ring) – Call *72 + the 10-digit number that you want to forward your calls to (e.g., *72-908-123-4567)
