    Hi,

    I think that there may be several factual inaccuracies here that you may want to clear up. First off, I believe that most (all?) US carriers will charge you air time for forwarded calls, so you will not be saving money as you suggest. This used to not be the case, many years ago, but people very heavily abused it and, unless I’m wrong, they started charging.

    Also, the article states that this program needs to be running (device on) in order for the forwarding to work. You should check with the author of the software, however the forwarding is probably done using the standard network call forwarding commands and once a forward is set, it will probably remain in effect (it’s on the system’s switch, not the phone) whether the device is on or not. The issue is that *changes* will not happen unless the device is on so the program can run and send a new command to the switch.

    Best regards,
    Neil
