For data jacks that VoIP phones run on you can essentially have an unlimited number of phone lines associated with one device.  By installing a 6 line phone and then adding on sidecars you can ensure that multiple lines will appear on the single data jack.

For traditional analog/Centrex jacks you can install four phones on the voice port of a jack. For example, two phones, one fax, and a credit card machine.

Please note this procedure will not work on the Cisco IP phones and since all Centrex lines are not compatible to add this feature you must call 6-7144 select option 5 to confirm the feature can be activated, if so we will activate the feature immediately. There is a $1.49 charge with each successful activation.

This is to address those instances where staff receive either obscene or harassing phone calls. The Call Trace feature enables a user to track a call already received and provide information to properly investigate a complaint.
