Make your home phone awesome with 20 great phone features for only $5 a month.
It gives callers to your phone the option of leaving a message if they haven't been able to reach you. You can then listen to your voicemail at any time, from any phone in New Zealand.
You can forward calls to another number when you’re not at home or when your line is busy. You can even set this feature to permanently forward all your calls.
It allows you to keep your number private when making a call. This can be on a per-call basis or set permanently.
When you just miss a call, hit the feature star code to ring that person back.
You can decide to screen ‘blocked’ numbers or all calls. Callers will go on hold until they state their name – you can then decide how you want to manage the call; answer it, send it to voicemail, etc.
Allows you to switch between callers. With this on, you'll be notified by a 'beep beep beep' during a call if someone else is trying to ring you.
Allows you to see who’s calling – their number will be displayed on the phone screen before you pick up.
Choose your own ring tone! Callers will hear the music of your choice when they ring you instead of the standard ‘ring ring’.
Do Not Disturb
With this feature enabled you can send all calls straight to your voicemail or choose to play a busy tone. You can also choose your own hours for this feature to be set.
Set up your own conference call with three parties or more.
Last Number Redial
Use this feature star code to ring back the last person you called.
With this feature set up you can have up to three other phones ring (even your mobile), when someone calls your home phone.
Have control over your bill by setting up a PIN code. You can choose to have this set for any outbound calls or only toll calls (calls other than free local area calls).
This lets you access your home phone line remotely. If you’re at a friend’s place and need to make a toll call but don’t want your friend to pay, use this feature to make the call from your home phone while you’re at their place.
Turn this feature on and you can avoid all those annoying ‘blocked’ numbers, or you can choose to reject all calls that you receive from a particular number.
Save time dialling by setting up your frequently dialled numbers in speed dial.
This feature allows you to schedule the times for many of the EasyPhone Features to be turned on and off, when and how you like.
Voicemail To Email
Get your voicemail sent to your inbox. This feature converts your voicemails to an audio file that can be sent to your nominated email address.
Use your home phone as an alarm clock with this feature.
Who Called Me
