You can add information about alternate devices that you use—such as a mobile phone, a home phone, or a phone at another work site—to your Cisco Unity Connection preferences. This makes calling Connection from an alternate device more convenient because the system recognizes the number and behaves the same way as when you call from your primary extension.
You can have up to ten alternate devices. Your Connection administrator may also add alternate devices for you, in addition to your primary extension. (When you access the system by phone, Connection does not list administrator-defined alternate devices. You can, however, view them in the Messaging Assistant).
When you sign in from a phone number that is not listed in your alternate devices, Connection may ask whether you want the number added. If you choose to add the number, Connection will recognize it and behave the same way as when you call from your primary extension. If you choose not to add the number, Connection will not ask again about adding it.
You can add or delete alternate devices by phone.
