Call Interceptor: V-Extensions - Manual
Call Interceptor: V-Extensions
Overview
Call Interceptor: V-Extensions uses the touch-tone phone calling capabilities of Vonage Extensions to make calls using your Android Phone. It provides you with an extensive set of rules for determining which calls should be intercepted and routed through Vonage Extensions and which Access Number should be used for the intercepted call.

The Interceptor is notified everytime an outgoing call is about the be placed and it determines if the call should be intercepted and routed through Vonage Extensions. This means you place calls/dial numbers as you normally would.

Calls that are routed through Vonage Extensions appear to the receiptent as being from your Mobile Number.

The call log of your phone is modified to show the number originally dialed not the Access Number number.

You have the ability to select which Access Numbers are used and can even assign individual Access Numbers to each contact. A random Access Number will be used from the list of choosen Access Numbers when one hasn't been assigned to the contact.

Tri-State Checkbox
Tri-State CheckBox: These have three states (On, Off and Question). On and Off worked as they do with a normal checkbox. When Question is choosen, this will cause the Interceptor to prompt you before dialing the call allowing you to choose whether or not to intercept the call.

If Question is set for any of the rules that apply to the current call, you will be prompted.
