What sort of telephones numbers can I get with my VOIP setup?
We provide clients get a geographically specific number. Customers in Johannesburg will be provided a 010 prefix number, Customers in Durban will get a 031 prefix number, Customers in Cape Town will get a 021 prefix, etc.

We'd be happy to assist with number porting. Please email email@example.com to get more information on this process.
How can I access my voicemail?

Can I forward my calls to my cellphone or another number?
Yes you can. To enable call forwarding dial *72(cell number you'd like to forward to)

My VOIP phone says I'm out of credit. Why do I have a credit limit and how can I change this?
By default all new VOIP setups are assigned a monthly credit limit (Homes are set to R200 and businesses are set to R2,000.00). These credit limits are in place to protect you from a outrageous VOIP invoice in the unlikely event that your VOIP handset is compromised. We would be happy to raise or lower your monthly credit to fit your needs. To do so please email firstname.lastname@example.org from the account holders email address and we will set your new limit as quickly as possible.
How can I check my VoIP balance or monitor usage on my VoIP phone?
I have multiple handsets and phones in my home, can I transfer between them?
If each phone is configured with its own unique extension, our VOIP department will be able to help setup extensions numbers (or feature codes as we call them) to help you transfer calls between extensions)
How do I physically transfer a call between handsets?
If your system is setup as per the above question to transfer, do the following:
Yealink T21P E2: Whilst on a call click the Transfer button linked to the screen (usually the left most button) > dial the extension number you want to call > click Transfer again.
Yealink W52: Menu > Call Options > Transfer extension Transfer
