The purpose of a Suddenlink phone is to replace an existing home line or supplement and reduce reliance on cellular coverage to overcome its shortcomings and reduce the amount of minutes or data needed. Suddenlink connects via a modem and wireless router and provides a wide array of features.
Suddenlink fills the gaps cellphones leave in emergency services by providing Enhanced 911 service, displaying the subscriber’s exact location in the event of an emergency. It offers call forwarding and unlimited local and long-distance dialing that includes Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Other features include call-waiting, caller ID, three-way calling, call return and call blocking. It also features TV caller ID, which routes the caller ID signal for incoming calls to the subscriber’s television and displays the caller information on his TV screen. This service is free with qualifying digital TV and phone bundles. Suddenlink can forward voicemails to up to three separate email accounts and allows the subscriber to listen to them on his smartphone or mobile device. This service is provided at no charge to voicemail subscribers. It also allows users to keep their phone numbers. Suddenlink easily connects to a phone modem with a cable connection and wireless router to deliver reliable and feature-driven service.
