This depends on where you have your DID forwarded to. If you forward the calls from your DID to your VoIP device or Localphone Voice Mail then you will not be charged for the forwarding. However if you forward the call to a mobile or land line you will then be charged for the call at our standard rate to the country the phone is registered in. As you edit were you would like the calls to be forwarded to on the Localphone Incoming Numbers page you will be given the amount you would be charged by Localphone for this forwarded call.
