Call Transfer: How to transfer a call

Call Transfer allows you to transfer an active call to a different phone mid-conversation.

What is Call Transfer?

Call Transfer is a feature that allows users to send an in-progress phone call to a different phone during the call. Calls can be sent to a cell phone, office phone or another home phone.

Consider these scenarios:

  • You take a call on you home phone and then have to leave the house. Transfer the call to your cell phone to keep the conversation going.
  • Your sister-in-law is calling to talk and then wants to talk to her brother. Transfer the call directly to your spouse's cell phone.

How to transfer calls

To transfer a call to another phone, do the following:

  • Put your current call on hold by pressing and releasing the receiver (flash) button. 
  • When you hear the stutter tone, dial the number you want to transfer the call to. 

Once your call is transferred, you have a few choices.

  • Simply hang up to complete the transfer.
  • Stay on the line until the person you're transferring to answers, introduce the caller and then hang up. 
  • Or, start a three-way conversation by pressing and releasing the receiver button.
