[VoIP] How do I call people in a different phase of the telephone upgrade?

Five-digit dialing does not function between Centrex (Wayne State University's old telephone system) and the newer VoIP system If you are calling a user who is on a different phone system, dial the full number as if you are calling a line outside of WSU.

  • Example: If you previously dialed 7-1234, you will now dial 9-1-313-577-1234.


If you attempt to five-digit dial

  • From a Centrex number to a VoIP number: You will hear a fast busy signal.
  • From a VoIP number to a Centrex number: You will receive an error message.
