Now the person appears in your delegates list, which will be a default selection in your call forwarding and simultaneous ring options.

  • Go to Settings > Calls. Under Forward my calls, you'll see My delegates as the default Forward to option.

  • Go to Settings > Calls again. Under Calls ring me, you'll see My delegates as an option in the Also ring menu.
