Screening works with the Live Call Forwarding
feature to fully screen Live Calls being forwarded to the number of your
choice. You might say this feature is your new personal secretary but without
the added expense.
does it work?
this feature is turned on the caller will be prompted to record his/her name
before being connected with you. When you receive the call forwarded from the
TeleCenter system instead of being connected directly to the caller you will
hear the recorded name played to you. Similar to having your incoming calls
screened by your personal secretary, this gives you the ability to take the
call or send it to voicemail. The Call Announcement
feature will then prompt the following options to be given to you; in option 3
you have the ability to replay the callerís name.
accept the call, press 1.
send the call to voicemail, press 2.
replay the callerís name, press 3. (Caller's name will replay
exactly as they recorded it)
hear the Caller ID of the person calling, press 4.
record a short message to caller, then transfer caller to voicemail, press 5.
repeat this menu, press *
Screening lets you know EXACTLY who is calling!
