Tips for Connecting with a Teleconference

Pathways of Light Office

Millions of people around the world are hitting phone carrier systems and the Internet at levels never before seen. This has resulted in some people experiencing busy signals whether calling in to a conference line or just trying to call friends and family. If you would like to help alleviate some of the strain here are some things you can do:

Call the Alternative Call-in Number. Call Alternative # 951-262-7373. After the call connects, you will be asked to enter the phone number of your teleconference, followed by the access code.

Download the Mobile or Computer App. If your mobile phone has Wi-Fi access to the Internet, you can use the Free Conference Call mobile app to connect from anywhere in the world to our teleconferences without using your cellular line. Go to the Apple Store (iPhone) or Google Play (Android) and search for “Free Conference Call.” The computer app allows you to connect directly from your computer. Click here to download the computer app.


How to Use the App

 

  1. After you download (and install it if you are using a computer) open the app.
  2. Click on “Join” at bottom left of screen. (NOTE: You do not have to Create Account or Log in.)
  3. Next screen: Click “Join new meeting”
  4. Next screen: Fill in meeting phone number and access code.
  5. Next screen: Click “Join”
  6. Next screen: Click “Call In Using WIFI or Data” NOTE: You must be connected to WIFI or you will be using your data
  7. Next screen: Fill in your name and click “Let’s go”
  8. Next screen: FCC would like to access microphone - Click “OK”
  9. Next screen: You are connected (may take a couple of seconds)

You can select the speaker icon to turn on and off speakerphone.
The “Mute” function is the microphone image on the lower left.
When the call is over, the “Leave call” function is the image on the lower right of arrow pointing right.

Join the teleconference 10-15 minutes before the hour to avoid the heavy call load that occurs on the hour. Carrier networks are less congested at these times.
