Power Outage Your Unlimited Digital Voice service needs electricity to function. In case of a power outage, the Battery Backup Unit (BBU) will power your basic Unlimited Digital Voice services — including 911 dialing — for a minimum of 8 hours. Be sure you have a fully-charged battery inserted in the Unit. Note:
  • If the battery is drained or there is no battery present, the Service will not function for any purpose.
  • If your home security system is currently using a jack in your house, those same jacks can be used for Unlimited Digital Voice without impacting security services. In the event of a power outage, the power limitations apply to your alarm system.
  • The BBU will not power your internet services, television services, or computer. You are responsible for purchasing and/or replacing the battery in the BBU.
Out-of-Service Back-up Phone Number If there is an area-wide outage or you've lost power and do not have battery back-up, Unlimited Digital Voice lets you choose a number where your calls can be forwarded. Once your phone service has been restored, the forwarding will stop automatically.

Unavailable Call forwarding can be set up on under Setting. Once you are in the Setting page, go to the Calls tab.

Note: If you have enabled Selective Call Forwarding or Call Forwarding, the numbers you have set for Call Forwarding will override the Unavailable Call Forwarding Number. If you have Voicemail activated to take your calls or have Simultaneous Ring or Locate Me enabled, your call will go to your specified Unavailable Call Forwarding.
