Calling Features

Calling features are powerful tools that help manage incoming and outgoing calls. Our best deal on calling features is the Ultimate Value Pack, which includes 17 features for $2.50/month. Caller ID allows you to see who's calling and screen calls before answering. Call forwarding allows you to send calls coming into your home or business phone to any other phone such as a cell phone or another landline. Restrictions allow you to control access to long distance and other toll generating calls like collect calls, 3rd-party charge calls, calls placed to 1-900 numbers, and more. And, best of all, many of the features can be turned on the same day that the order is placed. Contact a customer service representative for help selecting features that best suit your personal or business needs.

Voice Mail Packages

Copper Valley's flexible and convenient voice mail service makes history of troublesome answering machines and missed calls. Our voice mail system reliably takes messages for you even when the electricity is out or when your phone is busy. Our system sends a signal to your phone's voice-mail-indicator so that it beams red, notifying you that you have a waiting message. But our voice mail system doesn't stop there. It also offers message saving, forwarding, and most convenient of all, the ability to send an email message to you with your voice message attached!
