GeoDivert automatically diverts calls from your Voipfone telephone number or extension to your iPhone or Android when you move away from your usual location.
So, if you usually work from an office, but travel a lot, just set your office location in your phone, then whenever you leave, your calls will be sent to your iPhone or Android. When you're back in the office, the divert is automatically switched off. Change your location anytime. No fiddling around, no passwords, no forgetting, simple.
GeoDivert is real, one number, unified telephony that gives the freedom to travel without worrying about missing calls.

The app itself is free. It's exactly like setting a divert in your account, it costs the same, but is fully automatic.
Our mobile app's GeoDivert feature works using a combination of geo location methods - satellite positioning to set the home location and mobile transmitter mast triangulation and WiFi access points to calculate movements away from it.
This means that:
Everyone using GeoDivert will have a slightly different experience depending on where they live or work and their proximity to a reliable mobile signal.
This means that when you first start using GeoDivert it's important to test it fairly thoroughly around your fixed point to see how quickly it detects your movements.
If you have no signal where your set location is, the app will not be reliable.
If you don't hear the voice message telling you that your phone has diverted within 5 minutes of moving away from your set location, it means that your phone wasn't able to connect to the internet. To fix this, wait until you have a good signal and then open the app. This will force the divert (do first check that you have the app's audio alerts switched on).
New technology can seem confusing at first, but don't worry, we are here to help!
