Can't receive incoming calls

Postby lakerstrong » 06/06/2017

Hi all, I am currently unable to receive calls. The person dialing my fongo number gets a automated message, "no input so far" eventually it just hangs up.

My fongo does not ring at all, please help thanks

Hi,

You will need to setup receptionist otherwise it will not work. This is a requirement.

I don't believe you can setup just follow me with no receptionist.

Fongo Works is not intended to be a call forwarding service. Initially when you setup the account and do not configure the receptionist it will forward to the cell phone in which you signed up for (we will look at changing this), but once you set up your receptionist the service works as intended and you must record your receptionist greeting otherwise the caller will be presented with a blank receptionist greeting.

You could put in a support ticket to have your account deleted so that you could sign up again. Just an FYI though, account that have not completed the setup of their receptionist will be considered abandoned/incomplete and will be terminated at some point.
