Remote Call Forwarding from Traditional Land Line

Once upon a time it was possible to call your home land line (while away), wait for your VM outgoing message to begin, enter your PIN and then remotely activate Call Forwarding. In other words, you left the house and forgot to forward your calls. Not talking about a U-Verse, Digital or VOIP home phone but the original AT & T land line.

 

If anyone knows how to do this, an answer would be greatly appreciated.

Here's a link that addresses it.

They stopped offering that feature several years ago.  However, if you had it you were grandfathered in. 

 

I still have mine.  I switched to Uverse after they incorrectly informed me that that digital lines had remote call forwarding.  When I found out it didn't I immediately switched back before they completely turned off my regular landline.

I forgot to give you the number that I use for Remote Call Forwarding.    It is [edited for privacy-please do not post personal or unique information such as but not limited to full names, employee ID numbers, email addresses, phone numbers, account numbers, etc.]

The date on the users guide linked to was April of 2017 so if you had it at that time you should still have it.  I can't find anything definite that states when it was discontinued, but did find a post from early 2018 by a member that it was no longer offered.

That is for U-verse. It does not work. You can only access Unified Messaging.

Uverse does not offer remote call forwarding. I was grandfathered in on my traditional landline because i already had it.
