The Most Powerful VoIP Star Codes Unleashed

      Rating  0     Rating  0

All the features, known as “calling features” on VoIP lines are available as star codes. To use the VoIP star codes simply put the phone on speaker mode, and then dial the “*” followed by two or three digits codes. Most residential VoIP providers use two digits. On the other hand business providers will extend to up to 3 digits.

The neat thing is that star codes may be enabled or disabled, such as call forwarding, on-demand, or on a per-call basis. For example, dial *72 to forward all calls to voicemail when busy watching the game, et voila! 🙂
