Find Me Feature*

The Find Me feature reduces the chance of missing important calls. With this feature, you can program up to 5 external phone numbers (such as your cell number, your home phone, another office extension, etc.), so that if a user reaches your voice mail, instead of leaving a message they can choose to "find you" and the call will ring through to these other numbers.

Voice mail to email*

This feature is not available at this time.

The voice mail to email feature sends an email to you with a WAV attachment anytime you receive a voice mail message. This allows you to access and play your voice mail message from your mobile device without having to call into the telephone voice mail system. This feature is available for a one-time charge of $65.00.
