FAQs:

How will I be notified of new messages?

  • RingCentral users have an online account where they configure their answering and notification options.
  • If you want to be notified when a new fax or voicemail arrives for you, select how you want to be alerted—via email and/or text message on your cell phone or pager.

What if I’m traveling in another country?

  • You can have your calls and alerts reach you on any international number by setting your call forwarding preferences to direct calls and messages to the overseas number.

Can I hear the voicemail or see the fax as soon as I’m notified?
