i have had 3 friends try to call forward me and they cannot do it/i tried from my cel to the house phone...no luck. anyone?
What do you mean "call forward you"? Call forwarding is something you do with your Cox phone line with *(astrick) codes on the phone. Do you mean you can't forward your cell phone to your Cox land line?
changing their phone to mine
Then that is not them forwarding you, that's them forwarding their own phone. So your saying that doesn't work? What happens when they try? Busy signal? Error message? Can they forward to other people's numbers? How about a Cox number like the number you call for support?
my brother who forwards his home phone to his business everyday for 20 years is forwarding his calls to me for a couple of days, it doesnt do anything (he says) anyway cox is clueless to it. i had another buddy try it and he had the same thing happen...but everything on my line is working...except receiving forwarded calls
Try calling your number. I wonder if your number is forwarded by mistake, and the system isn't allowing a forwarded number to be forwarded to. Or you could just dial *(astrick)73 from your Cox home phone. Then have him try the forward again.
Also, when did this start? Like when was the last time someone COULD forward their line to your Cox line? The reason I ask is because in some areas Cox is upgrading the phone system, and there have been a few quiks like no TV caller ID. I wonder if this is another one of them.
