Can anyone recommend a softphone client for Windows 7 that supports call forwarding?

Basically I want to use the softphone client on my desktop PC, then when I'm leaving the office to click a button to enable call forwarding to my mobile phone.

I could enable it through my voip providers web interface each time, but I'm too lazy...

I know this is a feature on most hardware voip phones so I'm assuming a softphone must have it too.

Thanks,

Sam

I wasn't aware of any however it seems Bria 3 has the feature.

Standard Telephone Features
The CounterPath Bria softphone has all standard telephone features, including:
  • Call display and Message Waiting Indicator (MWI).
  • Speakerphone and Mute.
  • Redial, Hold, Do Not Disturb.
  • Call history – list of received, missed, and dialed calls.
  • Call forward.
  • Call transfer.
  • Call record.
  • Auto answer.
  • Six-party audio conferencing.
I don't think your going to get anything for free, advanced features usually come at a cost. However the link if you want it is http://www.counterpath.com/bria.html and the user guide can be found by clicking here.

Have you finally tried it? I wanna know if it smoothly works. Does it cost extra too?

Skype and 3cx do offer it. The 3cx will even allow you to create certain rules for the hours in which the call forwarding will be done. If your on the other line then your voicemail will pick up. If you want to pick up calls out of the office after hours than it can be sent to your mobile or the phone to your liking. Skype has this feature too and would be a lot cheaper.

Cool! I didn't know Skype has call forwarding. All I know though is that you can leave a message on its voicemail.
Skype has it and it's not expensive, it's pretty cheap and a cool feature.

Hello Everyone,

I see a lot of replies already but might as well put our name out there as a viable solution for this setup.

With Yay.com you can download our built in house App that can be installed on your smartphone, and on your PC.

When you are in the office you can make and receive calls directly on your computer, and while you are there just put the App on Do Not Disturb (DND) on your smartphone and no calls will be sent that way.

Then, when you decide to leave the office, you can simply log off your desktop App, and you can disable DND on the smartphone App, this will make all incoming calls being taken there! So you will never miss a call when you are out and about. All that is required is that you have an internet connection, either by Wifi or your mobile data.

This is done at the touch of a button, so it should be relatively straight forward.

If you want more information visit our website www.yay.com

Regards,

Miguel
