Alexa Integration

Midco Home Phone and Alexa

Connect an Amazon Echo Connect into your phone line, complete setup with the Alexa app, and then you can ask Alexa to call individuals, a specific phone number or answer incoming calls. The Echo Connect uses your existing phone service to make and receive calls.

Midco does not provide support for third-party devices, and Amazon devices are not available for purchase through Midco.

 

Seven-Digit Dialing

Who: MN, ND and SD phone customers

Midco offers the convenience of dialing a seven-digit number (without the area code) for local calls from your home phone service. However, the Alexa app assumes customers dial 10 digits.

To add a seven-digit local number into your contacts so it works with Alexa:

  1. Go to your contacts on your mobile device which you also also use with the Alexa app.
  2. Add a new contact.
  3. Put a comma in place of the area code, and then the seven-digit local number. For example, the contact phone number will show as ,5553901 or ,555-3901.
  4. Import contacts from that device to the Alexa app.

That number should now be in your Alexa contacts.

 

Import Contacts with Alexa
  1. Open the Alexa app and select Communicate.
  2. Tap the person-shaped icon at the top right corner of your screen to go to your contacts.
  3. Select the three vertical dots in the top right corner.
  4. Choose Import Contacts.
