Enabling and disabling the EC500 feature on your phone remotely:

First, what is EC500?

The Extension to Cellular Service (also known as EC500) adds flexibility and convenience for customers on the move. The service allows Johns Hopkins customers with Avaya telephones to have incoming calls to their desk phones ring on both their office phone and one outside phone (typically a cellular phone). When a call comes into your Hopkins extension with EC500 enabled, the caller ID information of the caller will still appear on your cell phone.  This is an add-on feature with an additional monthly charge. You can e-mail SON-CampusOperations to have this feature enabled or complete the Telephone Service Request yourself.

Enabling and disabling EC500 remotely

The following numbers MUST be dialed from the phone that receives EC500 calls:

ENABLE EC500 Remotely, dial 443-287-6256

DISABLE EC500 Remotely, dial 443-287-6255

The setting will be changed and the call will be disconnected. There is nothing else you need to do.
