Limit profile destinations are categorised into underlying levels:


  • top level 1, 'Emergency Services', has no underlying sub destinations
  • top level 1, 'UK', has eight level 2 sub destinations
  • top level 1, 'International', has several level 2 sub destinations to represent each underlying continent, with level 3 sub destinations to represent each underlying country within continent, and finally level 4 sub destinations to represent carrier types within each country:



Taking the above example:


  • the top level 1, 'UK', the value of 20,000 minutes here means that this is the maximum value - a threshold - that can be set for any underlying sub destinations under 'UK'.  Each sub destination must have a value set to either ''Barred (0 min.) or with a permitted value; in the example above, 'Premium' is limited 2,000 minutes per month, 'Operator & Directory Enquiries' is limited to 5,000 minutes per month and so on
  • similarly, for top level 1, 'International', the threshold value of 10,000 minutes here means that this is the maximum value that can be set for any underlying sub destinations under 'International'


Please also note that:


  • the top level threshold values do not act as a overall count for underlying levels and each end-level destination must have a value set
  • the top level limit thresholds will be coloured grey and an underlying sub destination cannot be set to be greater than its grey 'parent' value
  • underlying destination value limits will be coloured blue and cannot be set higher than their grey 'parent' value; calls to these destinations cannot be made when these limits are reached


In order to permit quick and easy destination setting for a destination and all of its underlying sub-destinations, make use of the 'Update All Sub-destinations' checkbox:



In the example above, all sub-destinations within Europe are being set to allow up to 1,000 minutes per month.
