Most VOIP providers allow you to forward calls.  I've used PhonePower for 8 years their website allows you to configure your lines as you wish.

They have a wide variety of capabilities for both wired phones and windows.  And they are cheap (about $9 per month), when you pay for 2 years up front.   I can forward with no local ring or with simultaneous ring.  Or I can set it to ring one destination for x amount of time then have the second ring for a different x time and even a 3rd.  It can get tricky.  I don't want certain voice mail picking up forwarded calls, so I had to experiment with the time.  

This site is one among many that compares VOIP providers.
