"Remote Call Forwarding." I used it for a while in Boston, with mixed
results. I could forward my calls remotely (from my home phone), but
sometimes the system just didn't work and callers got a fast busy.

Better solutions are:

1. A virtual number or VoIP number that you can forward. These are
widely available on the Web.

2. A cell phone that you keep with you that you can forward.

The basic idea is that you give out the virtual number (or web number,
or cell phone number) and forward that number to wherever you are.
