Using u:phone with an iOS device

This user guide helps you to use u:phone via the OpenScape Mobile Pro app on your iOS device.

Requirements

  • You have a personal u:phone profile.
  • The device on which you want to install OpenScape Mobile Pro uses iOS version 11 or a later version.

 Note

OpenScape Mobile Pro is not a SIP client. This means that the software treats all calls as mobile phone calls. Calls you make and calls you receive via OpenScape Mobile Pro are always processed via your mobile number. When you are abroad, this can result in high costs for incoming calls (passive roaming).

Installing OpenScape Mobile Pro

Install the OpenScape Mobile Pro app via the App Store.

Handling calls via OpenScape Mobile Pro

 Notes

  • The call recipient will only see your 5-digit extension, no matter whether you have installed the app on your private device or on your official mobile phone.

  1. Open the app and tap Recents in the bottom left corner. 
  2. Then tap the handset icon in the top right corner.

  1. Enter a phone number in the keypad.
  2. Then tap the green handset icon at the bottom to make the call.
  3. The telephone system will call you first and then establish a connection to the recipient.

Alternatively, you can directly tap and call a contact from the call log.

Setting up call forwarding

To set up call forwarding to a device, you have to select it as the preferred device in the app.

 Notes

  • Callers who try to reach your extension will still only see your 5-digit extension and not the number of the device to which your call is forwarded.
  • Only call back via the app (see instructions on Handling calls via OpenScape Mobile Pro). Otherwise, the call recipient will see the actual number of your device.
  • If the preferred device is abroad, you may incur costs (such as roaming costs).


Open the app and tap More in the bottom right corner, then tap Devices.
