    Charge in terms of a monthly fee? No. I have not seen anything. The unlimited plan includes it in the $50/mo rate.

    In terms of minute charges and such, normally it ends up being the usual charges you'd get from the caller to the line with the forwarding and then the line with the forwarding to the forwardee. But don't quote me on it. This is usually the case with landlines anyhow that I have seen.

    www.boostmobile.com would be a good place to look. A better place to post would have been the Boost forum too. Thread moved.

    I don't remember Boost branded phones having that ability. It does work however on my i880.
    I've made a few calls to my Boost phone that were forwarded to another line in my house. I'll just wait and see if there are any charges.
    Why don't you just call Boost CS?

    I know that on my Boost i335 you can do conditional forwarding. I'm not using it as an unlimited and it does use my minutes. However, if you have an unlimited plan, I can't see that being an issue.

    Well obvious it's 'free' on unlimited considering you have unlimited minuted so it's included in the $50/mo subscription. For paygo users, your calls are $.10/min so it gets charged as such.

    Basically forwarding acts somewhat similar to an automatic 3way call. The calling party is not getting a direct line to the forwarded number but rather passing through Boost/Nextel's interconnect systems and the usual charges that you'd get at each step along the way are taken into account.

    I suppose it is free on weekends with the $1/day plan. Sprint charges for call forwarding and does not take it out of your minutes. It's 25 cents I think. I did a test call and Boost did charge me 10 cents.

    I can confirm there is no charge on the unlimited plan but I have found that forwarded calls disconnect after 10 minutes.
