Call Forwarding to a 1-888 number

For the last 3 years I have been successfully forwarding my phone to my office number. I have a virtual office in the US and we have a 1-888 number. When I am busy working I forward my phone to this 1-888 number and it has always worked fine.

 

On Thursday, this suddenly stopped working. I tried forwarding to a local number, with no problem. However, it doesn’t work anymore with *any* 1-800 or 1-888 numbers (I tried forwarding to 1-800-GOT-JUNK and didn’t work).

 

Why did it suddenly change? How do I fix this?

Right....point being.....if some mysterious switches were switched.....would OP need USA addon? Likely not. 🥴 I-am overthinking it all.

Thanks, yeah it’s strange I can call the number I just can’t forward to it. And I’ve been forwarding my calls to the number for the past three years without a problem. The number hasn’t changed.

Dumb question. Is the 1-888 number accessible from Canada or USA only? 888 numbers Canberra set up by zones.
