Call ScreeningYou have control to ensure you receive important calls. You can limit the callers that ring your phone, filter callers, or forward important callers to another number.
Anonymous CallersCalls from anonymous callers (those without caller ID) can waste your time and distract you from other calls you want to take. Block them from even ringing your phone.
Custom Callers Use this feature to control who can call your phone and what happens when they do. These settings can be managed in the Voice Portal or by star code.
Robocall BlockingBlock the telephone numbers of known telemarketers and robocallers.
Sim RingEnables a call to ring to multiple lines and/or phone numbers simultaneously.
Call TraceCall Trace allows you to mark a harassing or threatening phone call in your Call History.
Call ForwardingWhen you aren’t available to answer calls on your phone, you can forward your calls somewhere else. Call Forwarding can be set up in the voice portal or by star codes. In the Voice Portal, you can set up a schedule to forward calls during certain hours, like your lunch break.
Remote Access ForwardingWhen you’re away from your phone but still want to receive calls, you don’t need to get back to your phone to set things up. Unconditional call forwarding, or forwarding of all calls, is available remotely using the voicemail system, so it will continue to function even if there is a power outage, internet outage, or device failure.
Call Waiting With Call Waiting, you can see who is calling, even if you’re on another call (as long as caller ID is supported on your phone). If a second call comes in while you’re on a call, you’ll hear the Call Waiting tone. To answer that call, you can choose to place your current call on hold and pick up the incoming call. Additionally, you can temporarily or completely enable or disable Call Waiting from your phone or in the Voice Portal.

VOIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) uses the internet to transmit voice data digitally, offering flexibility and cost-effectiveness for voice communication on various devices. It relies on internet connectivity, which may affect call quality. In contrast, Landline uses traditional copper wires for analog voice transmission, providing stable call quality and reliability, even during power outages. Landlines are fixed to specific geographical locations, while VOIP enables communication from any internet-connected place. VOIP typically offers advanced features like video conferencing, while Landlines may have limited features. The choice depends on factors such as cost, mobility, call quality, and the need for additional functionalities.
