How Do You Set up Call Forwarding on a Landline Phone?

To set up call forwarding from a landline phone, dial *72, wait for the dial tone, and then enter the number of the phone the calls are to be forwarded to. Depending on the telephone service provider, the person setting up the call forwarding either hears a stuttering dial tone, the phone the calls are forwarded to rings, or the user must press the pound sign to finish setting up the call forwarding feature.
