    Do any of you know a way to forward calls through wifi?
    Or another solution to at least know I have a missed call?

    I rehearse music in a room which has no mobile signal. But I do have wifi.

    I'm on duty regularly for my work, and need to know at least that I missed a call.

    Multiple options would be ok:
    Forward the calls through wifi to another phone or tablet
    Use an app to send an email when I have a missed phone call
    Use an app which notifies my home automation system (Loxone), which in turn changes the lights in the reharsal room.
    Or other suggestions ;-)

    Kind regards,
    David

    Does your carrier offer WiFi calling? Is your device supported for such a feature on your carrier? This would be the easiest option.

    Welcome to Android Central! You could try using Google Voice, since that should also work on wi-fi only.

    Thanks for the suggestion! Unfortunately Google Voice seems to be available in the US only:

    Who's your carrier? Do they offer a signal booster for the home?

    My carrier is Proximus (Belgium). The signal booster might be an option for the rest of the house. But the rehearsal room is built inside a cellar.
    It is built with double walls (35 cm reinforced concrete and 15 cm limestone).
    I don't think I can ever get any signal through that ;-)

    A booster right near that wall should punch a signal through it - concrete and limestone aren't very good electrical conductors (unless there's a high metallic content in the limestone, which there shouldn't be). If the signal is strong right outside one of the walls, placing a booster at or on the wall might do it.

    Can you use Call Connect? https://www.proximus.be/support/en/i...t-app.html#/pc

    If you can, then it looks like you should be able to answer a call using a computer in your studio.

    Problem is that the room is inside the cellar. And there's a lot of rebar in the walls (and ceiling) of the cellar.
    When I go down the stairs, I already lose signal halfway the stairs...

    Thanks for the suggestion. I didn't even know this existed.
    But apparently it's a separate (payable) option and I'm not sure I can convince my company...

    Maybe I can use google home to answer the phone...

    You can make calls on a Google Home, but unfortunately I don't think you can receive a call on it.

    How about something like this? https://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-KX-...cUvbUpU6518969
