|Call Hold - standard
||This allows you to place
a call into a hold state while you do something else such as look
up some information that the caller needs.

tones. Lay the handset down. The caller cannot hear anything going
on at your end. To return to the call, depress the switchhook again

After dialing a long distance number and there is no connection, hold
the switch hook down for 8 seconds before dialing out again. Otherwise
it will put the first call on hold and a charge will be applied.
|Enabled VoiceMail (EVM)
for faculty and staff
|EVM allows your
mailbox.sc.edu account to be the repository for all your voice,
fax and email messages. EVM has three components:
- evmDelivery - Get unified messaging capability with your
existing Octel message server. This application delivers all
voice and fax messages to your existing email system. Now you
can easily view and print your faxes from your email inbox or
listen to a voicemail message on a computer that has a speaker.
- evmNotify - Message waiting, when and where you need it.
Exactly like a message waiting light, except the application
generates an email notification to any email address, including
wireless PDA's and digital cell phones. This application is
great for remote workers.
- evmForward - Ever need to forward a voice message to someone
not in your voice network? This application enables you to
forward voice messages to anyone with an email address.
evmForward is also an ideal way to archive those messages you
want to save.

|Stutter Dial Tone - standard
||Have you ever wanted voice
mail but didn't apply for it because your telephone set doesn't have
a message waiting light? University Technology Services can install
a feature called Stutter Dial Tone which is an audible sound that
tells voice mail users a message is waiting in their mailbox.
|Extension to Cellular, EC500
for faculty and staff
||EC500 is an enhanced feature
that is available with our university telephone switch. EC500 treats
your cell phone as if it were an extension of your desk telephone.
