Simultaneous Ring allows you to specify a set of phone numbers to ring in addition to your primary phone when you receive a call. This feature is helpful for those times when you are not at your desk and want to receive inbound calls at an another number such as your mobile phone. You can turn off simultaneous ringing when you are at your desk.
