  • Allows you to use a single telephone number. With Single Number Reach, your desk phone and mobile phone will ring when an incoming call arrives. Outbound calling also gives the same caller identity regardless of whether you use a desk phone or a mobile phone. In addition, you can set call forwarding directly from the mobile device.

  • With Join Conference, you can join an audio unified communications conference with a click of a button directly from your mobile calendar without having to dial any numbers or remember passcodes.

  • Simultaneously sign in to more than one application (Office Communicator, Office Communicator Mobile, Office Communicator Phone Edition), at the same time and have multiple options for communication. In order to keep presence information up to date, the presence indicator now shows Mobile as an option for your availability, enabling people to easily keep track of your status.

  • Global address list (GAL) support and contact lists with distribution groups help users easily search for people within their organization, see their presence information, and communicate with them.

  • Multi-party IM conversations let people initiate and participate in IM discussions with more than one person at the same time.

  • By optimizing performance, battery life is now improved by 350 percent, giving you plenty of time to answer your calls and collaborate with your team without having to worry about your battery life.
