Call Forwarding and Inbound Trunking

Note: When forwarding a call to a mobile number you will be charged for an outbound call at the rates of your current plan.

Inbound Trunking

By default, inbound calls are delivered to a phone which has logged in against that same number. However, some customers prefer to have multiple inbound numbers terminate on a single logged-in device. This setting allows you to send inbound calls for this phone number to the registration or login of a different number on your account. By using this option you can create one or more inbound trunks for your incoming calls. If you enter a number here which is not on your account – then this setting will simply be ignored and removed. The number format should be the same as the registration ID. e.g. 61280111800.

  1. Log into your Account.
  2. Switchboard.
  3. Your Number or all.
  4. Inbound.
  5. Select Inbound trunk number.
  6. Log into each restricted line and use Inbound trunking to pointing each required line to your terminated trunk DID.

After-hours Voicemail

Use the forward when unavailable to set up a separate after-hours voicemail message. This will require an additional number for the voicemail service.
