Activating an alternate call plan

The purpose of alternate call plans is so that you can quickly redirect your inbound calls. We recommend you create several alternate call plans to accommodate a variety of scenarios. That way, when an unexpected situation or emergency occurs, all you need to do is activate one of your plans. You can activate alternate call plans from either your mobile phone or computer.

To activate an alternate call plan:

  1. Click Services, then click Network, Security, and Communications.

    Control Center shows a list of all services assigned to the billing accounts under the enterprise ID.

    • To filter your services based on a specific value, select an attribute from the Advanced Filters icon (), click the section(s) you want to filter by, type your filter criteria, then click Apply.
