Q:

How do you accept collect calls on a cell phone for free?

A:

Because of its specific nature, a collect call cannot be received for free whether on a cell phone or landline. However, a collect caller can call a landline user who accepts the charges and then initiates a three-way call with a cellular user, which avoids additional cell phone charges.

There is a charge associated with any collect call, and someone must be billed for that cost. Some cellular providers do not allow collect calls to be received at all because of billing challenges. Cellular providers that allow the receipt of collect calls do so with fees assigned that must be accepted before the call is put through. Some people opt to use a prepaid service for collect call charges.

    Transferring calls to your cell phone from a landline is an easy task, but in order to do it, you must have the call forwarding feature enabled on your phone. Check with your phone company to make sure you have this feature. If you do, forward landline phone calls to your cell phone by simply dialing *72, entering your cell phone number and pressing the pound button on your landline phone.
