Forwarding one number to another

My work has a koodo (cell) number that is used only for voicemail, I never use the phone itself. I use my own personal cell, also Koodo, for everything, I don't want to carry two phones. Can I forward the work cell (keeping that voicemail separate) number to my personal cell # and not pay two full bills?

It seems silly that my work is paying full tilt for that line that is only used for messages and I am using my personal cell for everything. Is there some kind of solution?

A full VoIP service would be a much better choice for the Farmers Market. For a small monthly fee, you can have call forwarding, managed access, voicemail, text messaging to an email address of your choosing, automated assistant, calling hours, etc. You can easily forward where necessary.

Cost as low as $0.85 per month plus $0.005 per minute.

What Goran said gives you your best option. If you want your work phone to remain with Koodo, you can set up call forwarding on it to your personal phone, but all calls will be forwarded to you even if you dont answer (so you will be getting the voicemails on your personal phone too). Call forwarding is also an extra cost per month or $0.60/min if pay-per-use

Thank you!
Well you mentioned a way to not pay for two lines and that's just not feasible if you want to maintain a mobile line for work. Now, you can use a voip App like Fongo for your work line. It'll allow voicemails to be left and you can even have the app on your phone and answer calls while still keeping your own number fully separate. I'd check it out. You might find it to be the perfect fit for what you need.

Well call forwarding requires two lines. What do you need the work number for then? Sounds like something that needs to be worked out policy wise. Can you use your personal phone for work potentially?
So we are a Farmers Market that does not have an office, I work from home. The Market Koodo phone number was in existence before I came in. Essentially it is used for customers to leave voicemail. I check through the week and return calls. The Market number is Koodo and my persona cell is also Koodo, So I was wondering if I can forward the Market number to my personal number to keep the Market # intact publicly so we don't have to re-do all the numbers on paperwork everywhere. and I don't have to advertise my personal number everywhere. Additionally, if I ever leave I can just cancel the forwarding. Not sure if I've explained this well.
