I have a RC Office Premium account. I am trying to set it up so that if someone calls in and presses 1 for sales, my desk phone rings first and if I don't answer, the call goes to an external number (answering service).
I do not want all calls to my desk phone forwarding to the answering service, only callers who pressed 1 for sales and then I didn't answer in time.
Since call queues do not let you no-answer-forward to an external number, RC support created a new "Extension" in the users tab (Sales, ext 1) and set up call handling rules to first ring my ip phone and then go to an external number.
My question: will I be billed extra for this?
I have read many forum posts about RC's deceptive billing for non-device/non digital line extensions. I just signed up and am frustrated that this system, with all its complexity, can't accomplish what I need, and worse that I could be hit with a surprise bill later. No one at RC support seems to be able to clearly explain whether this new extension will be billable or not. They don't even understand their own billing rules.
Can a RingCentral community staff member please comment and provide a definitive answer? I'm close to canceling already and going with another provider who can do ring group forwarding for free.
