Call forwarding not working well

Hi Dawn,

Now I somehow figure out the problem with call forwarding. Please verify with your engineer:

If I set the wait time for call forwarding (from my whistle phone to my cell phone) to less than 5 seconds, the forwarding wont't work at all. The caller will hear "Please hold while I connect your call", and immediately "I am sorry but I can not complete your call". My cell phone doesn't receive anything.

If I set wait time to more than 5 seconds, the call will be forwarded to my cell phone, but the number of rings on my cell phone before the caller hearing "I am sorry but I can not complete your call" (and then cut off) depends on the seconds I set. If I set 7 seconds, my cell phone rings one time (the caller hears more rings, around 4 or 5) and then cut off. If I set 10 seconds, my cell phone rings about 3 times. If I set 20 seconds, my cell phone rings about 6 times.

Please confirm that this is how your system works: in order for me to get longer rings on the cell phone that my whistle phone is forwarded to, I have to set longer wait time (and the caller needs to wait for longer time).
