5 Ways to Screen your Calls

When your phone rings, you don’t always want to answer it. Sometimes you’re busy doing something else, other times you just don’t want to talk to that person. Either way, it’s nice to have different ways to screen and possibly redirect incoming calls. Here are 5 ways you can screen incoming calls.

Caller ID
It's helpful to see who's calling before you pick up the phone. With Caller ID, you can see the name of callers, even if they’re not in your address book.

Distinctive Ring
Distinctive Ring allows you to set a specific ring or call-waiting alert for calls that meet specific criteria that you determine. This helps you prioritize specific calls as they come in.

Voicemail Monitoring
Voicemail Monitoring allows you to decide whether or not you want to send an incoming call to voicemail. If you don’t recognize the caller-ID, you can listen as they leave a message, or pick up the phone at any time to speak with the caller.

Receptionist
Give callers a personal, human touch each and every time they call. Receptionist enables a telephone attendant or receptionist to monitor phone status for selected employee phones and easily manage incoming calls.

Anonymous Call Rejection
Anonymous Call Rejection intercepts calls from people who are using a blocking feature to prevent their name or number from showing up when they call. Any incoming calls that don't show a name and number are rejected.
