Are there charges for using Lingo call forwarding?
There may be charges for using Lingo call forwarding, it all depends on your Lingo calling plan. If the number you want to forward calls to would be free if you dialed it directly from your Lingo phone, then call forwarding will be free too. If there would be a charge if you dialed the call directly, then you will be charged for each minute of the call that is forwarded. For example, if you are on the Hello America Unlimited calling plan and forward all calls to a phone number in China, then the per minute calling rate for China would apply.
