Call forwarding on a cell phone and phone records

Hi MeFites! I was wondering if anyone can enlighten me on how call forwarding on my cell phone will show up on phone records. Also, is it possible to call someone while routing through the original number (from the forwarded-to phone)? How would this show up on phone records? By the way, the phone records I will be talking about are on AT&T and are on the online website. If anyone knows ways to circumvent AT&T's tracking, I would like to hear that as well. One last question: Will simply enabling call forwarding itself change anything on the phone records and is this visible on the records?

Background: tracking uses either GPS positioning through satellites or cell towers to pinpoint the location of the phone.
My thoughts: Will the records register an incoming call and then an outgoing call to the forwarded-to number? Or will there be simply the incoming call and that's it?
I also don't have access to the account, so I can't check. I also know that I should talk to the owner of the account and etc. but this is not viable at the moment.
Thanks for any help!
