Could you please tell me which one is correct:
1. Would you please pass the information onto John.
2. Would you please pass the information through to John.
If both are correct, what is the difference then?
You could also use 'pass it over' and 'pass it across' with a similar meaning. 'Pass it off' is in no sense the opposite of 'pass it on'. 'Passing something off [as]...' is trying get a counterfeit accepted: 'Eliza Doolittle paased herself off as a princess'.
Thank you both Bhai & Bob,
May I use both options (or even more that you pointed out) regardless an information being verbal or in some sort of physical form (such like a letter or email, etc)?
Yes. The information doesn't have to be in physical form in order to be passed on to someone.
