Never Miss a Call Again with Vonage’s Network Availability Number®

There are times in life when you simply can’t keep your main phone connected or when connectivity becomes spotty during long transitional phases.

This is never more true than during a move.

Even just the word “move” can fill a person with dread, as cascading “To Do” lists force you to consider each and every ugly aspect of house hopping, up close and personal. And with today’s harried lifestyle and packed schedules, at the top of that list is what to do if your Internet is down for a long stretch or if you are waiting for an important call. Thankfully, for Vonage customers this isn’t a problem.

Broadband not working yet in your new home? Don’t fret about missing calls on your VoIP service by setting up your Network Availability Number® on your Vonage account and having all your calls forwarded to your cell phone. Network Availability Numbers are just one of the many features that has made Vonage the leader in VoIP calling services and that can make even the trickiest move a total breeze.

Just log in to your Vonage Online Account and click on “Features” which will lead to a “Network Availability Number” page. Once there, simply select the line you want the Network Availability Number to back up — most likely a cell phone, although landlines work equally well. Then click the “Configure” and enter the number on which you’d prefer to receive calls — any number in the U.S., Canada, or Puerto Rico. That becomes your Network Availability Number. Click “Submit” and you’re done.

Now, before the movers even arrive, you can start getting all your Vonage main line calls forwarded to a totally separate phone! Important business calls, family checking to see how the move is going well, drivers in your caravan. They can all reach you anytime you’re needed. Reliability, opportunity and simplicity — that’s what Vonage is all about.

Try out the Network Availability Number feature and see if you agree it could make a big difference during your next move.
