Cingular To Offer Unlimited Call-Forwarding Plan

In another move to deal with potential local number portability issues, Cingular is now offering a service that will let users forward calls to their home or office phones. Already some carriers offer such an option, but this one won’t count the minutes or charge minutes against your plan – though, it will cost you $3/month and require that you buy a $40 device. The forwarding works automatically when you place the phone in the device cradle (which also recharges your phone). Seems like a creative way to address the questions people have had about providing a single phone number that uses the most appropriate network.
