Calling Features

CallerID
See the name (if applicable) and number of a caller on your phone’s CallerID screen.

CallerID and Number Masking
Block your CallerID name and number when placing an outbound call by dialing *67 (+ number being dialed).

Call Waiting
Be alerted of an incoming call when you’re currently in another call. The name (if applicable) and number of the incoming call will be shown on your phone’s CallerID.

Three-Way Calling
Talk to two other parties at once.

Unlimited calling to US and Canada
Calls to any US or Canadian phone number are included in your My Choice plan.

Last Call Return
Quickly return the last call received by dialing *69.

711
Relay service for those with hearing or speech disabilities.

7-Digit Dialing
Allows you to dial local phone numbers without the area code.

911
Dial 911 to be connected to emergency services.

Note: The Extend Home adapter is a VoIP device. E911 Service may be limited or unavailable in the event of a power outage or internet failure, we highly recommend you have an alternate means of contacting 911. If you make a E911 call from this device, you will be routed to a regional public safety answering point (PSAP) or a national call center. In either case, be ready to provide the emergency dispatcher with your actual location from where you are calling.
