Please note that when you forward your calls, they will not redirect back to your AceVoice mail box. Messages will be left in whatever messaging system is on the forwarding destination.

Optional: Check ‘Attach Message’ to attach a .WAV file of the actual voice mail to the e-mail. Please note that you will still need to log into the voice messaging system to delete the messages from time to time.
Call Waiting & Three-Way Calling
Most phones have a ‘Flash’ button which allows you to switch between calls. When you hear the call waiting beep of a second incoming call, press the ‘Flash’ button to switch to the second call. Press ‘Flash’ again to switch back to the first caller.
While you are on the phone with the first party, press the ‘Flash’ button, you will hear a dial tone pulse. Enter the telephone number of the third party, and once you are on the phone with them, press the ‘Flash’ button again to bring the two calls together.

Use Your Adapter Away From Home
Plug your adapter into any broadband connection* just like on your local network at home, make and receive calls just like you always do!
*The quality of calls will depend on the quality of the network you are using, and the adapter needs to be able to get an IP address via DHCP.
