Directed Call Pickup


Directed Call Pickup allows a user to dial a feature access code (*97) followed by an extension, to pick up (answer) a call directed to a user with that extension (in the same customer group). If the ringing party has already answered the call, or if it has no alerting call, or if the dialed extension is invalid, the user receives a reorder treatment.
