Ultra Call Forward

Ultra Call Forward provides you with the ability to activate and deactivate the Call Forward Variable feature from most touch-tone telephones outside your home. This service also allows you to remotely forward your calls to another number. To access this feature, you must dial the Ultra Call Forward access number (1-855-787-2393), the number of the line to be forwarded, and the pin number assigned to the individual telephone line being forwarded.

NOTE: The PIN number is established when the Ultra Call Forward feature is added to the telephone account. If you do not know your PIN number or would like to have your PIN reset, please contact RCN at 800-746-4726. The PIN must be a 4-digit number and must start with a number between 1 and 9.
