Abstract

This design uses GPS (Global Positioning System) coordinates, in conjunction with mobile phone technology. The user is given the option to have their mobile device calls automatically forwarded to a designated landline number when at a specific location. The main advantage of this system is that the user does not have to manually change their forwarding number every time they relocate to another location in which they wish to have their mobile phone calls forwarded.
