Effective Thursday, April 8th our retail locations are OPEN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Full COVID-19 Response update here.
Set up your home phone, cell, and business to ring simultaneously for incoming calls. The first line to answer takes the call either live or by voicemail.
Set up several numbers to ring in a predetermined order. If you do not answer at the first number, the call will go on to ring the next number in the list. Unanswered calls can be routed to your voice mail service.
If you are not available to answer the phone or busy on another call, then call answer is for you. It is an answering service that works on your existing touch tone telephone taking messages, which you can retrieve, from home or away from home.
Residential customers can retain up to 30 new or saved messages for a maximum of 10 days.
