good day,

i am trying to better understand if there is a limitation on the number calls that can be forwarded from a cell phone that is set to forward calls.  in other words, if a call comes into a cell phone that is configured to forward to another number, and that call is answered, how many additional calls can come into the cell phone again and again and be answered.

i am trying to understand if there is in fact a limitation here with the carrier in terms of how many calls can be forwarded and simultaneously active.  to better clarify here is an example:

cell number 555-555-5555 is forwarded to landline 777-777-7777.  lets assume that 777-777-7777 is a PBX and it has no limitation on number of simultaneous calls it can receive inbound.

call 1 comes into 555-555-5555 and forwarded to 777-777-7777 and extension 100 picks up
call 2 comes into 555-555-5555 and forwarded to 777-777-7777 and extension 101 picks up
call 3 comes into 555-555-5555 and forwarded to 777-777-7777 and extension 102 picks up
and so on...

how does the carrier handle these forwards? what would be the limitation here?
