    EC500 (extension to cellular): With this feature turned on you can answer your campus telephone calls on your cell phone and transfer them between your desk phone and cell phone, all transparent to the end-caller. With EC 500, you no longer have to give out your cell phone number because when you make a call, your desk number appears. The end caller does not see your cell phone number. Once EC500 is setup, the user can turn the feature on and off as desired. No monthly fee is charged for this service. There is a one-time programming fee of $35.
    The EC500 service requires a local cell phone and digital phone service.
