Please remember that 911 lines are reserved for emergency calls only.  
Here are some reasons you might call 911:

To report a crime in progress, 
To report a fire
To request medical assistance or to request an ambulance. 

 

A monthly fee of $2.00 applies for most all business and call center service types that require 911 service activation. The 911 cost recovery fee is charged per 911/e911 registered location/phone number on your account. Prodigy Phone is required to provide 911 service by the Federal Government and this is an Prodigy Phone imposed fee to recover costs associated with providing this capability.
If you have any questions regarding e911, please contact us at + (832)582-3846

Emergency information is not automatically associated with your physical address; this is something that send us with your new location to keep updated in our system. Therefore, if you move your analog telephone adapter (ATA), you must update your account or 911 emergency operators will receive the wrong information when you call.

Please note that 911 service may not be available depending on where you travel to, or it might not be be able to receive your 911 information automatically.

VoIP is totally dependent on your broadband connectivity.  Therefore, if the power goes out, the equipment that supplies your broadband internet connection stops working.  This also means that your VoIP phone service will not be functional, including your ability to dial 911.

Here are some things you can do to make sure you have access to 911 when you need it:

  • Purchase and install an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS). This device stores backup battery power that your broadband devices can use if the power goes out. There is a limit to how long the backup power will last, so keep that in mind when choosing a UPS.
     
  • Use your land-line to call 911. If you have a secondary phone line from your local phone company, you can use that to call 911, even if the power is out. 
     
  • Your cell phone can also be used to call 911 in an emergency. 

Whether your system is unavailable or you are experiencing an Internet or power outage, Prodigy Phone offers you the option to redirect the incoming calls to your DID numbers to any location where you can take the call, for example like your cell phone.
