Press 1 to Accept Call

Why do I need to press 1?

We reroute calls coming to your Burner and send them to your cell phone so your personal phone number stays private. This is why it looks like your Burner is calling you when you receive a call, and why it looks like you are calling your Burner when you dial out.

If someone calls your Burner and you don't answer, the call goes to your Burner voicemail. If you do answer, you'll hear “Press 1 to accept this call." Pressing 1 puts the call through for you. This functionality acts as a barrier that prevents callers from hitting your personal number's voicemail.

You can disable this feature by turning on In-App Calling (VoiP), which gets rid of the hassle of pressing 1 each time.
