Reverse Notify / Replay Line
You can now use 1-866-665-4386 as your Caller ID and the system will allow "Reverse Notifications". This will allow users who missed a call to ring back this number and get the last message they missed. Keep in mind that this doesn't work for Phone Notify! demos; also keep in mind that this counts as 1 transaction. You must have a license key to use Reverse Notify (transferring does not currently work with this feature. We do plan on offering it in the near future).
