Mobile Voice Access

Question

How can I make calls while off campus that appear as though I am on campus?

 

Answer

You can use Mobile Voice Access

Mobile Voice Access is used to make calls from a single phone line using a personal device.  It also includes the option activate Mobile Connect which rings your personal device when your desk phone rings that line.  This is an excellent alternative for call forwarding a single line as well.

Access to Mobile Voice Access will need to be granted by IT. They will require a personal phone number to get set up. 

 

Instructions

Mobile Voice Access allows you to make calls from a cell phone, landline phone, or Google voice number while making the call appear as if you are on campus.

Making a Call With Mobile Voice

  1. Call 616-234-4001 - You should hear a Welcome prompt and be asked for a PIN number.
    • If you hear a prompt asking you for your remote destination number, then let IT know as there is a configuration issue that will need to be resolved.
  2. Enter your PIN: 1234
    • 1234 is the default PIN
  3. Press 1 to make a call.
  4. When entering the number to make a call, enter the digits just like you would from on campus, including 9 for an outside line and 1 for long distance calls.
