Because of the existing climate, there are a lot of folks at home on the internet (working, Netflixing, online learning, etc.), so there will be times where your internet connection is going to be spotty. We suggest that you set your phone up to forward your calls to your mobile phone (cellular data) and ring your VoIP phone. That way, you can decide if you want to answer through your mobile app or your mobile phone.

For instruction on how to forward your number, go here.
