    • In this release, saving a fax is not supported; the fax can be saved from your desktop in SmartPBX however.In the interim, some of our users are "saving" these fax images by taking a screen shot with their phone.  
    • In SmartPBX you can define if you want to receive an email of your fax, and/or send a fax to another number by email.  If you have turned this setting on and are not receiving your emails, please check your "Junk" mailbox.  You may see notifications like below.  Remember to allow incoming emails from the no_reply server your system uses.

    Settings Options

    • Enable Call Forwarding
      • Set the phone number you want to forward the call to.
      • Also ring my other devices.  If checked, will ring all devices that are assigned to this CallThru phone #.

    Dial pad and Program Settings

    When you select the dial pad icon at the bottom of any screen you will access your calling window, as seen below.   In addition, you will see a gear at the top right.  This will display the Program Settings screen, seen to the right (for reference ONLY!).   

                     callthru iOs screen shots - 6.PNG                   CallThru.us iOs Program Settings.PNG

    Most of this Program settings page is provided FOR REFERENCE ONLY.   Check with your system administrator before resetting any of these fields.   

    • Account Setup
      This displays the User Name and Password generated by the QR code during setup.   
      Delete this ONLY if you want to remove the application entirely from your phone.

    • About
      At the bottom of this screen you will see a version number for your app.  This can be useful during troubleshooting calls.  If you have auto-update set to on in your Apple apps. settings you will likely have a current version.  
    • Reset application
      This may be recommended if there is inconsistencies with your SmartPBX application and/or you are changing your phone number.

    Making a Call using CallThru.us

    Go to your Dialpad and Dial a Number !

    In the background, the CallThru app follows these steps when making a call:

    call thru how a call is made1.png

    What callers will see is something like this:

    • A quick screen that says "initializing" before the call is completed. 
    • An access number that the app is dialing.   NOTE: This is not the phone number you are calling, it is the access number that the CallThru.us has allocated to relay your call. 
    • Select the access number to initiate the call.

      callthru iOs screen shots - 7.PNG


    What the call recipient will see depends on your settings:

    • The person receiving your call will see a number you have assigned as your caller ID in your PBX system.
    • If your caller ID is not set up to be shown, then your caller ID will show as Anonymous.

    Receiving a call from CallThru.us and your PBX system

    What callers will see / hear depends on your settings in your PBX application.  

    • Your cell device is added to your user settings, and will adopt the general settings you've applied to your other devices. 
    • The caller will hear what your PBX system had defined, and a possible pause during the phone forward process.  

    What you will see / hear 

    • When a call is forwarded to your cell phone, it will ring as a normal call.  When you answer however, it will prompt you to "Press 1 to continue."  This is currently what indicates the call is from your PBX system.   Future releases will provide alternate preference options for identifying these calls. 
    • If you want to customize when you get calls (e.g. turn the ring off at certain times, customize a voicemail) go into the device settings for this CallThru device, and select which devices. you want to set to DND (see Settings Options, above)

    If you are not receiving calls

    Here's some troubleshooting ideas if your phone is still calling out but not receiving calls:

    • Verify your phone has been added to you as a user in your PBX setup.
      • It should display in Smart PBX as in the above post, as a listed phantom device (without an icon for now)
      • it should display in User Portal under Settings & Devices.
    • Check your settings for where your calls are sent to.  By default when you set up your cell phone the calls will be treated as your other devices are treated.  If you want your cell to have unique behavior, adjust the settings in Smart PBX under Find Me, Follow me, as above.
    • If you are still not receiving calls, you may want to reconfigure the phone -- the phone number you entered may not have synched correctly as the number of your cell phone (think typo, we are adding a way to verify your input, will be available shortly).   It is possible to dial out with an incorrect cell phone, but not to dial in.   To reset, 
      • From the app on your phone, choose the gear at the top right of your dialpad, and select Reset Application.  
      • Go to the User Portal app on your desktop, pick the Mobile Tab
      • From this tab, type in your number
      • When you see the QR code screen, instead of capturing the code there, choose the "Link new phone number" arrow at the top left
      • Enter your phone number again very carefully and double check it! 
      • Capture the new QR code
    • This should reset your phone and your desktop

    NOTE: For a more detailed view of these steps -- with screen shots, refer to the CallThru FAQ.

    Reviewing your CallThru.us settings  

    There are three places to check and set your CallThru Settings and preferences:

    • From your CallThru.us settings screen
    • From your SmartPBX and/or User Portal application on your desktop (soon also on your mobile phone)
      • Control the ringing and routing behavior of incoming calls, e.g. voicemails, etc.
      • Set your assigned devices and fax boxes.
    • From your iPhone settings screen 
      • Control permissions for the CallThru mobile app related to iPhone data access, for example if CallThru can access your Contacts, Microphone and Camera.  During your installation, you are asked to enable these;  however if you choose not to at the time, you can through the iOS settings screen.  See below
      • Reset and/or re-couple your phone with your CallThru app.


    Settings controlled from standard iPhone settings screen
    These are the traditional settings that you can control through your iPhone for most applications.  If you declined access to your contacts during configuration, you can override that in these settings.  Your contacts will display once the setting is changed.
