The 911 Info tab (see screen below) allows you to verify or change the address to which you want emergency personnel to come if you dial 911 from your VoIP phone. We verify your address with regional and national 911 address databases, so it is crucial that you change it appropriately and re-verify if you move.

The 911 Info Tab

Warning: 911 response is not automatic with your VoIP service. If your address has never been entered or you move and do not change your 911 address, a 911 call from your VoIP phone may be significantly delayed or misrouted. You can always call 911 from a traditional land-line phone or from a mobile phone.

911 Info Tab

To Enter or Change your 911 Address To enter your address for the first time (if it somehow didn't get entered when you signed up for service) or to change the address shown, enter the new (or changed) data, carefully following the fields. Note: Street # and Street Name are in separate fields, and apartment or unit numbers are in their own field, titled Address Type #. Then click the Validate button and you'll either get a response Number is Valid, or Number isn't Valid, but here's a few close choices. Once you've gotten a valid response, then click Update Entry to change you 911 Address.

Warning: If your new 911 Address is not confirmed, then emergency personnel may not be able to send assistance to you. Please refer to the 911 Dialing section of our Terms and Conditions of service for important information on potential limitations of this 911 feature, including the differences between the VoIP 911 feature and traditional 911 service.

What is the Great Options Tab?

From the Great Options tab you can download add-ons and products that enhance your VoIP service functionality. This manual is available for download from this tab, as well. This screen will look something like this:

  • "I use CallBlast all the time to forward my client calls to my mobile phone. That feature alone is a remarkable timesaver for me. It lets me be away from my desk most of the time and still take every call “live” that I want to. I have a second line we use for our home number, and I love the videophone—I can see my friends instead of just talking into a piece of plastic. "
