How to set up and use the MobileLink App on Android devices

To use MobileLink, you must be have an Enterprise Premium LunaVoice seat and have this service turned on. If you're not sure, contact LunaTech support for assistance.

Installing/Logging into MobileLink

If you've not already done so, download the Broadsoft MobileLink app from Google Play.

The app icon looks like   so be sure to download it and not another app with the same name.

Once installed, login using your LunaVoice credentials (i.e. a username and password that LunaTech provides to you). You generally only need to do this once unless you inadvertently log out of the app.


User Name.  This is the same as your LunaVoice user profile.  If you have a DID, it would look something like:
Password.  This is your web login password to your LunaVoice service.

If you don't have the above info, please contact LunaTech support for assistance.

Telephone.  Enter the mobile number of your smartphone, including the area code.
Host Name (or URL).  You must enter here in order to login to your service.

Once complete, click on Login to begin.


Choose Your Settings

There a many settings in the app that are at your control.  However, there are only a few places you need to concern yourself with that give you on-demand control of the full mobility experience of the app.

1.  Upon login, you're taken to the Dial Pad and above the Dial Pad, you will see "Call", "History", Directory", and "Settings".  Scroll over to Settings and select it.

2.  Once selected, you will want to open up the tab for Call Control and select BroadWorks Mobility.

3.  Under BroadWorks Mobility, make sure the main setting is turned to "On", which it should be by default.  

4.  Most of the other preference will be pre-enabled for you by LunaTech; however, the only settings you want to adjust to your personal preference are the "Phones to Ring" and "Answer Confirmation."  You can also change these back and forth on-the-fly as you wish.

Phones To Ring.  Your choices are Fixed, Mobile, or Both.

  • Fixed only rings work calls at your desk phone (if you have one).  You can still make calls from your smartphone with MobileLink but calls to you will only ring your office.
  • Mobile will only ring work calls to your smartphone, skipping your office phone altogether.
  • Both rings your desk phone as well as your smartphone, allowing you to pick up the call on either device.

Answer Confirmation.  If checked off, this is useful if you use your own smartphone for both personal and business use as it alerts you to the fact that the call is a work call that you can either accept or reject. 

With this setting on, when a work call comes to your phone, you will first hear a recorded message say "Press any key to accept this call."  If you don't want to take the call ignore or hang-up and the call will get routed back to your office phone's voicemail.

If you want to take the call, press any digit on your phone's keypad.

Note: You only have a few seconds to decide on this otherwise your office voicemail will pick-up the call automatically, thinking that you're simply unavailable. You can increase the number of rings before voicemail picks-up to increase your time to accept the call.

If you leave the setting unchecked, however, you skip this confirmation process and immediately get the call upon answering your mobile phone. This is particularly useful if your smartphone is a company phone which is used exclusively (or mostly) for business purposes.

5.  With the above set, click back to your main Settings screen and open up the tab for Outgoing Calls. 

6.  Click on Outgoing Call Options and select "Use Call Through Service."

Call Through will always put your call through your company PBX.  It first dials into the the PBX to get dial tone (you might see a 712 number) and then it connects you with the call.  This is the most popular choice and you can always change these settings whenever you need to.

Call Back is helpful if you're overseas and roaming and better off receiving a call -- not making one, which can be expensive.  MobileLink will call your company PBX briefly to arrange the call and then hang-up.  It will then call you back, patching the person you are trying to call to you, hence you're receiving the call, not making it.


Using the Directory

Your MobileLink Directory looks the like one below.

Unlike your Android, this screen starts-off empty until you search for someone.  Type in a contact name, hit the magnifying glass icon, and the directory will start to populate.  Once you find the contact you are looking for, click on their name and another menu will come up that will allow you to call the contact.

Under the initial Directory Search field, you will also see something that says "Display."  If you click on that, a menu of options appears.

  • All will search your directory of company users stored on the PBX as well as all the contacts stored on your smartphone.  This is the most popular choice.
  • Enterprise Directory will search only the company directory of users in your organization. Depending on how much user information is populated on the PBX, you can see a user's name, title, email, work and mobile phone, address, location, etc.
  • Local searches whatever users are stored specifically on your smartphone's address book or contacts.



The History tab will show you your call history in chronological order.  You will notice icons next to each telephone number in your history.  These icons illustrate whether a call was placed by you, received by you, or missed.  Click on any number to be able to dial that number back.


The Dial Pad

This is where you can dial not just external numbers but you can also dial others in your company by extension as well.

Note: If you are on a call on your desk phone and hold down the icon near the * button on your MobileLink dial pad, it will allow you to "pull" the call to your mobile app.  This is useful if you're on an active call at your desk and need to leave but don't want to lose the call.


Turning your MobileLink App "off"

If you wish to not receive work calls on your cell for a certain period of time, it is best to do the following rather than logging out:

  • Go to Settings
  • Call Control
  • BroadWorks Mobility
  • Phones to Ring
  • Change to "Fixed"

Doing this will cause all calls to go to your desk phone only.  Even if you do not have a desk phone, you can pick this option in order to allow calls to not come through to your mobile.
