You can use the Simultaneous Ring to link your main number to your mobile or office assistant.
Note: While SimRing provides a simple mechanism for linking to alternate numbers we recommend limiting its use for an individual number owner needing to link their main phone to one or two alternates, such as a mobile. For more sophisticated call flows also review the Forwarding and Trunking, Call Queuing, or Auto Attendant features. When using a mobile number in simultaneous ring, if the call is answered by the mobile, an outbound call will be charged at the rates of your current plan.
