Outgoing calls in voicetools

Is anybody else having problems with outgoing calls being logged in the Voicetools?  This has been on-going for over a month.

There have been several tickets open, which have always been "escalated," but that doesn't seem to fix anything.  I have talked

to probably about a dozen phone CSR's, but nobody seems to be able to give me a definitive answer as to what the problem is.  I

gave them permission to set up a temporary password so they can look at my call history.  I have started my own phone log because

they ask me what numbers I called and when.  Still no resolution.  I talked to someone last night and he told me it's because I dial

*82 before the number.  That seemed odd to me.  First time I heard that and why should it matter that I dial *82?  One girl I spoke with,

who seemed quite knowledgeable, pinpointed the problem started in October when I was switched over to the new "platform" as she

called it.  What does that even mean?  I am trying to be patient, but this is getting ridiculous.

  • Hi Rosebud84, Cox has been working all year on a project to update our telephony network by removing outdated Circuit Switch technology and replacing it with Packet Switch technology. You were migrated to the Cox Voice platform on 10/19/18. The morning after you were migrated, you tried to access your Call History via the Cox Connect App. You may recall seeing a message instructing you to download the Cox Voice Everywhere App; prompting you to post in Forums to ask about this change. The team working one of the tickets escalated on your behalf was able to determine that calls made using the *82 code were not being recorded in Call History. A code change was implemented on 11/19/2018 to include all *82 calls in Call History going forward. Try making a test call to a friend or family member through the Cox Voice Everywhere App. The Call History within the Cox Voice Everywhere App should update and display the outgoing call 15 minutes after the call is placed. Keep in mind that calls made using the home phone will not show in Call History within the Cox Voice Everywhere App, but instead will display in Call History when you log into phonetools.cox.com online. -Becky, Cox Support Forums Moderator
