Welcome to the Freeola Internet customer support pages. This guide is designed to explain the options within MyFreeola that allow you to customise your Freeola Voice home VoIP service with additional features. For more internet help topics please visit our main Support Page.

Through the Freeola Voice section of your MyFreeola account you can enable, disable and modify specific features of your service. This guide aims to outline these features, and the options available when using them.

To start, log into the MyFreeola Control Panel that manages your Freeola Voice service and select Freeola Voice (VoIP) then Freeola Voice (VoIP) from the left-hand menu - this will open the Freeola Voice Overview. Click Settings next to your package, then scroll to the bottom of the page to the Additional Settings section.

    Once active you can access your mailbox by dialling *95 from your handset.

    • Set ring timeout in seconds - How long the line will ring unanswered before sending the caller to Voicemail.

    • Voicemail PIN - Enter a 4 digit PIN to prevent unauthorised access to your Voicemail messages.

    • Notification Email - Entering an email address in this field will generate an email message to that location every time you receive a voicemail.

Call Forwarding Settings
  1. It is possible to forward all calls into your number to a different number - this can be another VoIP service, a traditional landline or mobile number.

    Please Note
    Forwarding your incoming calls to another number will result in call charges as if you were making calls to the number, these will be charged to your VoIP account or taken from your monthly minutes (as appropriate).
  2. Call Forwarding can be scheduled for specific times, in specific situations and with specific actions. You can customise your Call Forwarding using the drop-down menus provided:

    • Time Interval - This field sets when you want the forwarding to be active: Always, Public Holidays England/Wales or Public Holidays Scotland.

    • If Call Status Is: - If you only want the calls to forward in specific circumstances, this field allows you to specify these. You can forward Any call, or only calls when the line is Busy or Unanswered or if the Call Fails completely.

    • Action: - The action you would like calls that meet the above criteria to take: Forward will forward all calls to a specified number, Follow Me will ring your line AND the number specified and Send To Voicemail will divert the call to your Voicemail (if active).

    • Preserve Caller ID - Tick to display the Caller ID of the caller on the receiving device.

  3. In the example below, we have enabled forwarding for England/Wales Public Holidays that will forward all calls received on these days to a mobile telephone number.
