Music on hold instead of ringtone

With Placetel you have the option of exchanging your ringtone for incoming calls with the music on hold stored in the system. The caller hears music on hold instead of a dial tone.

In the following steps you replace the ringtone with the music on hold.

  1. Switch to the "Telephone system" tab.

  2. Click on the menu item "Numbers" and select the number for which you want to use this option.

  3. Edit the current routing. You will find the "Miscellaneous" tab under the forwarding settings. There you can activate music on hold instead of the standard ringtone.
