Call and Text Forwarding

With Burner's call and text forwarding, you can forward your Burner calls and texts to any US/CA number you want! Just follow the steps to verify a number, and you can choose to forward calls, texts, or both! It's the perfect solution for going out of town and transferring calls and texts to your assistant or receptionist. 

To turn on call or text forwarding, follow the directions below: 

1. Go to your Burner's settings page by tapping the gear wheel at the bottom of the screen.
2. Scroll down until your see 'Forwarding', and tap the option. 
3. Tap the 'Forward to' option to input the number you wish to forward to. Once input, tap 'Save' on the top right of the screen. 
4. A prompt will pop up to begin forwarding, which states "This number has not been verified. Forwarding will start once the number has been verified." tap 'Send Verification' to send, or 'Cancel' to cancel. 
5. A prompt will pop up allowing you to choose between a text or a phone call for verification. Tap the verification method of your choice. 
6. A message or call will be sent to the forwarding number to be accepted. In the app, you will see a heading that states "222-333-4444 is set up as a forwarding number but it has not yet been verified. Once the number has been verified, forwarding will be activated. Use the text / call switches to set up the initial forwarding. 
7. From here, you can make your selections for forwarding calls or texts, but it is dependent upon the 'Forward to' number being verified.
