    I am wondering if there is a way to forward calls from certain contacts or groups to a different number?

    Basically I have a group of contacts that I don't want to receive calls from during the day, so I want to foward those contacts to another number where they can leave a message. I don't want my Hero to ring or be alearting me that they called or that I missed their call.

    Is there a setting or an app that can do this?

    Thanks for any help!

    That is going to be tough, but I am interested in what is available. It would be nice to either do that or the inverse, only accept calls from specific people...

    Even if sending them directly to voicemail was acceptable to you, it would be painful to go to each user and do it manually...

    I guess you can do that with Google Voice. I'm not an expert, but in the settings you can choose what ever you want to do with your callers groups. Check this out.
    Unfortunately, I don't have any invitations, but I got mine from eBay for only $2.6
    That's all I know...

    If you go to the contact and go menu> edit and look under "Other" at the bottom you will see where you can select to have that contact's calls send to Voice Mail.

    Is that what you want?

    I do know where that is but no, that is not specifically what I am looking for. Basically I'd like to route a certain group of contacts to my other phone during the day. Then be able to remove that setting after work. I guess almost like Google voice, but the reverse... I don't want to have to change my number with everyone just to do this. In Google voice you can have a certain group receive a specific voicemail message. And you can route certain groups to ring your phone or go straight to voicemail. So basically I'm want to do that with my own number on my phone.
