Modify LOCATE ME feature for home phone

Status: Not Likely
by dkhieu88 on ‎02-09-2012 09:09 AM

Currently, when the LOCATE ME feature is turned on with, say 3 rings, then the home number rings 3 times, then a "THE PERSON is being LOCATED" message comes on, before the so-called located phone number rings.

Is there a way that we can turn off that message. I think the call-forwarding action should be completely seamless. The caller should not need to know that the call is being forwarded.

Status: Not Likely
Appreciate your feedback. We probably would not eliminate the message because most callers are used to calls being answered after 3-5 rings with voice mail or answering machines. With Locate Me, they could hear considerable more rings and hang up without an alert that the system is trying to locate you. You could use Simultaneous Ring so your callers won't hear any kind of message but the ringing cycle would be like they are accustomed to.
