Can the GXV3240 or 3275 videophones be used for regular telephone calls?
Yes. Subscribe to the Small Business Advantage Calling Plan, which features both incoming and outgoing calls, then simply dial the phone number and the call is routed over the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) to traditional telephones.

  • For local and for long-distance calls simply dial like a regular phone.
  • For the Small Business Advantage plan it’s possible to select an area code in another city or frequently called location so colleagues, customers and potential clients would only be making a local call.
  • All plans feature unlimited local and long-distance calling to the US and Canada.

When using the GXV3240 or 3275 what numbers are dialed for video calls?
An eight-digit Account number or SIP User ID (i.e. 10011122) number will be provided to each subscriber after the Sign-up process. This Account number can be used for in-network calls.
