However, when starting to use the call forwarding function, the costs incurred are not limited to construction costs.

You must bear the charges for using the service and the call charges incurred when transferring.

Disadvantages of carrier call forwarding

If you have a line that you are using, you can use a call forwarding service by consulting with the person in charge of the company you are already connected to, which is an advantage of using a carrier.

However, there are also disadvantages such as construction costs and the fact that it is often not possible to call multiple numbers all at once, so it is better not to choose a carrier easily, but to carefully consider it.

Costs such as construction costs


As explained earlier, using the carrier’s call forwarding may involve construction costs and call charges.

After confirming the cost-effectiveness of introducing call forwarding internally, you should decide whether to start using it.

In many cases, it is not possible to set multiple forwarding numbers.


In many cases, the number that can be set as a forwarding destination is limited to one.

Therefore, if the person to whom you are transferring the call cannot answer the call, you may miss the call.

You may be able to forward the call to another number again, but be aware that you will generally be charged for each call .

It is necessary to take measures such as using a service that allows you to register multiple forwarding numbers.

Different numbers when calling back


Call forwarding is a very convenient feature, but when you call back from the forwarding number, the number that the caller initially sees is different from the forwarding number, such as your company.

In addition, if the forwarding number is the employee’s personal mobile phone, it may lead to the leakage of personal information.
