Personal Phone Numbers
Personal Phone Numbers allow you to have a telephone number that you can
forward to one or more existing phone numbers anytime, anywhere. You can
even set a sophisticated scheduling for this.
For example, a business in Europe can have a U.S. number that customers
in North America can dial, but which forwards automatically to your European
office at cheap rates. You can have a separate number for your home-based
business to make it appear more professional. You can have separate numbers
for family members to provide a feeling of independence and a way to keep in
Personal Phone Numbers are easy to buy and configure. You simply tell the
system where to forward your calls for your personal phone numbers. There is
no limit to the number of personal phone numbers you can configure.
Call forwarding allows your calls to be routed to any landline, mobile
phone, IAX, or SIP phone depending on the time of day or day of the week.
You may provide several alternatives to try if your primary phone is busy or
you are not reachable. This is called a "follow me" service and is included
with your Diamondcard account at no additional charge.
You can define the time frame and which phone numbers to find you at. You
are not allowed to have times overlap. Switch from one number to the next
number happens when the phone is not available or when the timeout is over.
You set the timout in seconds for each phone number attempt.
For examples, you may set up something like the following.
For all working days from 8:00 till 18:00.
1. Your IP phone. 2. Your office number with timeout 30 sec.
3. Your cell phone number. 4. Voice mail.
In this example when somebody is calling your personal number, it will
first call your IP phone. If no answer or if you are offline the system will
route to your office phone. If nobody answers your office phone during the
30 seconds timeout, the system will then try to reach you on your cell
phone. If you are out of range or do not answer your cell phone the call
will then route to your voice mail.
Phone numbers are specified in international format (e.g. 49115234567).
Do not enter an international dialing prefix like 001 or 011.
SIP phone numbers are specified as SIPfirstname.lastname@example.org:port.
IAX phone numbers are specified as IAX2/user:email@example.com/number.
