How-To: Choose which calls to accept with Call Screening

How-to /

Call Screening will tell you which number your calls are coming from and give you the choice of when to accept a call.

  • You can hear either the dialled TTNC number or the caller's number when you answer the call
  • Calls are only answered if you press '1' on your phone's keypad
  • This helps you to avoid your mobile's voicemail kicking in when you're on other calls or have no signal
