I want to be able to have calls ring at my I phone for a few rings or a certain amount of time and then forward to another number, not my voice mail. I know you can forward calls to another number, but I want it to ring to phone first, then if I don't pick up forward to another number.
I am told you cannot do that but someone must of figured it out????

This is what I did. I hope it works for you.
I got the SIM card out of the Iphone and put it in my old RZRv3. I went to the menu of the phone. Under "Settings" went to "Call forward", selected "voice calls".
Then selected "Forward" then selected "If Unavailable". Back at the voice calls menu selected "to" and changed the phone number to the number I wanted to transfer the calls.
Accepted all changes "done". Got out of the menu. Got the sim card out of the rzr and put it back on my Iphone. Tested the my phone, called and after few rings the call was transferred to the other number. Maybe you can use any other phone, who knows, you will need to test.
I just have to mention that the voicemail for my account is not set up. Hasnt been for a couple of years. So it someone calls me, there is no voice mail. After 6 rings you can hear a message that says "I'm sorry but the person you called has a voice mail box that has not been set up yet. Good bye" and hang up. I just dont like voicemails.

if you don't happen to have another phone to use, this could also help you:
iPhone is considered as a revolutionary mobile phone
. May be it’s too revolutionary that it lacks some very basic features. Some iPhone users complain about the absence of conditional call forwarding feature (which can be found in most mobile phones):
iPhone allows you to setup basic call forwarding to direct all calls to another phone number. However, it doesn’t provide any interface to setup “Call forward if busy” and other conditional call forwarding.
Despite the lack of user interface on iPhone to activate conditional forwarding, you can use the so-called “Call Forwarding Code” to activate it. Here are the tricks:Activate Call Forwarding
To setup “Call forward if busy”, simply dial *67*[another phone number]# and tap “Call”
To setup “Call forward if not answered”, simply dial *61*[another phone number]# and tap “Call”
To setup “Call forward if unreachable”, simply dial *62*[another phone number]# and tap “Call”Deactivate Call Forwarding
To deactivate “Call forward if busy”, simply dial #67# and tap “Call”
To deactivate “Call forward if not answered”, simply dial #61# and tap “Call”
To deactivate “Call forward if not reachable”, simply dial #62# and tap “Call”
You do not need to remember all these codes. Say, you usually use “Call Forward if busy”, save the number as a new contact. Next time, when you need to activate call forwarding, just look up that contact and dial the number.
