Distinctive & Priority Ringing

Distinctive & Priority Ringing

Description

Allows you to make your phone ring with a different ring cadence.  Use this service if you want to know when a specific person calls such as your manager or spouse or when you would like to easily tell when a call is from inside your group or outside your group.

Function

The criteria for each Priority Alert entry can be a list of up to 12 phone numbers or digit patterns, a specified time schedule, and a specified holiday schedule. All criteria for an entry must be true for the phone to ring with a different tone (phone number and day of week and time of day).

The change in ring on the phone is only a change in the ringing cadence it does not change the ringing tone applied.

Some Handsets support the use of different ring tones based on the Calling Line ID. This is a phone feature and not a feature of the WHC service.
