Trouble with call forwarding to our multiple lines & voicemail

We have a Vodavi phone system in our office. Each phone has 3 lines. When a call comes in to our main line, if it is not answered in 2 rings, it is supposed to be forwarded to our line 2. After 2 rings on line 2, if no one picks up it is to be forwarded to line 3. After 2 rings with no answer on this final line, our voicemail is supposed to pick up. This is not happening though. We have had our clients tell us that the phone rings 10-12 times before going into voicemail. Often, it rings 5 times on line 1 and 5 times on line 2, then goes to voicemail. We are quite possibly losing client calls who do not want to wait for 10-12 rings for a VM to kick in. We contacted Verizon and everything is seemingly correct on their end as far as the sequencing of the rings and call forwarding. They suggested it was something with our phones. We have no idea how to go about changing and/or testing our system. Do you have any thoughts on how our phone system could be the culprit for why the correct call forwarding sequence with Verizon is not "in sync" with our phones? Any ideas for correcting the problem?

It's not and they're idiots. The hunt sequence you describe CF-No answer is part of their arrangement, probably Centrex/Centranet.

This is one of the sloppiest setups they can possibly give you, but it relates to destinations for CF busy and CF no answer. Get someone who has a clue and tell them to adjust the time on the No Answer part, or, better yet, give you something that really works.

It depends on which Vodavi phone system you have. It will involve getting into programming mode and changing the ring assignments. Here is a link to some Vodavi manuals:

Call Waiting

THere are two answers to you question, depending on certain options and conditions.

First, where is the voice mail and where is the call waiting coming from?

1. If Voice Mail (VM) is located in the central office and you have a destination for call forward BUSY/NO ANSWER it will go to CO VM.

2. If Voice Mail on premise (Partner Mail), and you have CF BUSY/NO ANSWER set on your phone, it will go to voice mail....IF the call waiting is coming from another line. The CF and ring count is set in Partner system programming.

3. If you have call waiting coming on the same phone line and don't have CO VM, then you have no voice mail.

My CO codes for VM are 72# for Call Forwarding and *92 for CF Busy.

As Always, YMMV

Vodavi Telephone System Programming

The best way is to remove the phone line from the phone system and make it go direct to the fax. In the closet with the phone equipment. Find the fax telephone jack. Follow where the wires go(it will goto the phone system 25pr cable). Take the pair of wires off. Find the fax number that comes in from ATT. That is the location where you need to punch down the wires that come from the fax telephone jack. To test goto the fax machine pickup the phone on the side of the fax and call your cell phone to see what the caller ID is. God Bless. Jerry
