on the left-hand side of the main menu. Then, select Incoming Calls.

Spectrum Anywhere*

  1. Spectrum Anywhere simplifies communications for on-the-go users and remote users by extending the features of a desk phone to any other fixed or mobile device, regardless of the network or handset manufacturer. Callers dial one number and can reach you on any phone the user chooses. A desk phone, cell phone, and/or a soft phone may ring simultaneously. Enjoy voice call continuity with the ability to move live calls from one device to another without hanging up.
  2. Add locations (numbers) that can be used in the service by adding a number in the Add number text field.
  3. Check Don’t Divert Calls prevents a call ending up as a voice mail, which can be problematic in, for example, conference call situations.
  4. Select Answer Confirmation to receive a separate audio prompt when answering a call from that number (location). It may be useful in cases where, for example, mobile numbers are being used to prevent incoming calls going to mobile voice mail since the call will be ended without going to voice mail if the answer confirmation is not provided.
  5. Select the Call Control check box to enable the server platform to provide mid-call services such as Call Transfer and Conferencing for that number (location).
