Uncheck the voice mail first of all - have you set CSS to the the CFWD flavour as well?

What you will want to do is forward to his cell # either after a ring-no-answer or forward all.

The above guide will explain your options. If you would like the user to intervene have them press the softkey cfwdall on the display.

Quickest way is to find his phone in call manager. Device>>>>phone>>>>Then find his phone by his Directory Number. After you are on the config page of his directory number, your options are to forward all, forward busy, forward no answer, and forward no-coverage. The above guide explains your options.

Hope this helps!

I have configured in the same way as mentioned in guideline but what happens whenever i try to call that ext. no. after 1 rings call is discarded.

I have configured in this call manager find the desired directory no.,click it and go to Call Forward and Pickup Settings,check both Forward No Answer Internal $ Forward No Answer External,check the voice mail box,provide the converge/destination no., No Answer Ring Duration given to 5 (sec).

please guide me ...
