FAQs

General

Q: Even when the Mobility application is not active, incoming calls to my business number continue to ring my mobile phone. Can I turn that off?

To change the Do Not Ring Mobility setting, navigate to Settings > Preferences > Call Handling > Do Not Ring Mobility, and then select the desired option (On or Off).

Q: Can I use my Mobility license on more than one mobile device?

iOS

Q: Can the ShoreTel Mobility application have a different ring tone from mobile calls?

Q: How do I configure the ShoreTel Mobility application to only use the Wi-Fi network?

  2. From the Home screen, turn on Wi-Fi; select Settings > Wi-Fi and then choose a network.

Q: I accidentally activated Siri, how do I turn off the "Hey Siri" option (formerly known as "Raise to speak")?
A: To turn off this feature, navigate to Settings > General > Siri and turn off the Allow "Hey Sire" setting.

Q: My company requires a lock code on my iPhone, so by the time I input my code to answer the Mobility call, the call usually goes to voicemail or hangs up before I can answer the call. Is that the expected behavior?
A: Yes. Calls that are forwarded to the ShoreTel Mobility app have already been ringing one or more times before connecting to your mobile phone. In ShoreTel Connect Director, you can configure the number of times your ShoreTel phone number rings before going to voicemail. To avoid callers hanging up, consider using a lock code that can be entered quickly.
