Don’t Forget To…
Make Arrangements Regarding Your New (Temporary?) Phone Number – This can vary depending on what your decision is regarding porting your number. if you are porting over your existing number, DO NOT cancel with your existing provider until the number is completely ported to the new carrier. If you have a new number, be sure and let everyone know, say, with an email blast; if you have a temporary number (which is needed during the number porting process), it may be easiest to have all calls routed to your cell phones for the brief time that your number is being ported. More on Number Porting.
Tip: If you cancel your service with your old carrier before your number is ported, you’ll lose it.
Configure Your Dial Plan – One of the first things you need to do is organize how your calls will be routed. You’ll have to define a number of call rules, including:
*What hours for your desk phones to ring
*How to handle off-hours—whether calls go to voice mail or another phone, such as your cell
*How to handle faxes
*What buttons activate certain features, like pressing 1 for voice mail
*Setting your dial-by-name directory
*Simultaneous and sequential ringing/Find me & follow me rules
Tip: Be sure to configure your E-911 settings when you first set up your PBX
Review Your Bill – Review the first and second month’s bill to make sure that you have all the services you paid for. There are setup fees that may or may not be waived, activation fees, and number porting fees. If there’s something you don’t understand about your bill, be sure to call in to customer support, as they will explain it to you or fix the problem.
Write a Review – Share your experience with the world. Other people will get to gain from what you learned along the way. Talk about pleasant and unpleasant surprises, too. Other potential customers will want to know your experience. Leave a review here.
