AT&T Corp. said Monday that its “AT&T CallVantage” voice-over-Internet-protocol service is now available throughout California, as well as in parts of New York state and in San Antonio.

The company rolled out AT&T CallVantage in New Jersey and Texas two weeks ago.

Consumers in the Los Angeles, Oakland, Orange County, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose and Riverside/San Bernadino metropolitan areas gained access to AT&T CallVantage Monday. The VoIP service will be expanded to other areas in California and the nation over the coming months, AT&T said.

AT&T added that it will offer a special introductory rate of $19.99 per month for six months to those who subscribe to AT&T CallVantage by May 31.

The VoIP service’s features include: “Call Logs,” which track incoming and outgoing calling with “click-to-dial” capability; “Do Not Disturb,” which allows customers to receive calls only when they want, while letting emergency calls ring in; “Personal Conferencing,” which enables users to set up meetings with up to nine additional callers; “Locate Me,” which enables home phones to find customers by ringing up to five phones all at once or one right after the other; and “Voicemail with eFeatures,” which allows customers to hear their messages from any phone or PC and forward voice mail to anyone on the Web via electronic mail.
