Alerts you with a beep if someone is
trying to call you while you're on the phone. You may then put the first
person on hold while you answer the second call. Allows important calls
to get through even when you are on the phone.
Cancel Call Waiting
Lets you turn off the Call Waiting feature on per call basis. This feature prevents interruption during important calls or data transmissions and is active for all Call Waiting customers.
Turns a two-way conversation into a three-way
conference call. It saves time and money by getting everyone on the
phone at once and enhances your business image. It's very convenient
for quick conference calls. It is also great for teens who like to talk
with more than one friend at once.
Usage-Sensitive Three-Way Calling
Works the same way as Three-Way Calling. The only difference is that you will be charged $0.75 each time when you activate it with the *71 code.
Speed Calling/Speed Dial 8 & 30
Reduces your dialing time for emergency or frequently called numbers by allowing you to dial using one or two digits. Your list can include long distance numbers. Available in either 8 or 30 number capacities.
Returns call to the last number that called you whether or not you answered the phone. If the number is busy, Call Return will continue to redial and alert you with a distinctive ring when the line is free.
Allows you to recall the last numbers dialed from your phone. If the number is busy, Repeat Dialing will continue to try until the call is completed, then you will receive a special ring and when you pick up, the number will automatically ring.
Screens your incoming calls by signaling you with a special ring when a number from your selected list is calling. You may have up to twelve numbers on your Call Selector list.
Uses distinctive rings to let you know
who a call is for. You will have two numbers on the same line, each
ringing the phone differently. Use one number for most of your calls.
Use the other number for those calls you don't want to miss or to alert
someone in your household that the call is for them.
Allows you to immediately trace the last incoming harassing or prank call. Information about traces will be provided only to the appropriate law enforcement agency after you have made three successful traces. You then work with the law enforcement agency to take appropriate action.
Whenever you need to transfer a call, we make it simple. You can transfer it to a different location or to the second line in your home. You can talk with the second party before you transfer the call, or include all three parties in the conversation.
Residential Call Hold
Allows you to place a call on hold and then continue the conversation either from the same set or from another more convenient extension.
Subscriber Activated Call Block (SACB)
Control the amount of long distance calls made from your home phone.
Allows a call to be automatically placed to a pre-designated number (such as 911) when the telephone is off the hook and no dialing occurs within 15 seconds. With this service, you have normal access to the phone, but you can summon help in emergencies just by knocking the receiver off the hook.
Telemarketer Call Screening (TMCS)
Prevents calls that are delivered as
blocked Caller ID or "out of area" from reaching the customer's
line. The calling party is played following announcement: "The
number you have reached does not accept calls from telemarketers. If
you are a telemarketer please add this number to your DO-NOT-CALL-LIST
and hang up now. Otherwise please press 1 or stay on the line."
Since telemarketers normally use automated dialers, they are unable
to press the 1 and complete the call. Also, any telemarketer who continues
the call after hearing the request is in violation of federal law.
Allows you to reject calls from a list of numbers you specify.
Provides the name and number of the caller on your special telephone or display attachment before you answer the call. After the first full ring, the name and number of the caller appear and you can decide whether or not to answer.
Caller ID Block
Prevents your phone number from being displayed to the person receiving your call.
Anonymous Call Rejection
Numbers that originate from a private line will be sent to a recording stating the call will not be accepted. Allows you to reject calls
from private lines and phones that read as private, blocking name and number.
Selective Call Acceptance (Avoid-A-Call)
Screens incoming calls against a list of subscriber-specified telephone numbers, and accepts any call from those numbers. Calls from any other telephone number route to an announcement that the subscriber does not wish to receive a call.
Caller ID On Call Waiting
Identifies the caller while you are on the phone (must have a unit that is compatible).
Allows you to transfer incoming calls
to another number. You don't have to miss important calls, or sit waiting
by the phone. It keeps your home more secure by giving the impression
someone is at home.
Preferred Call Forward
Works just like regular Call Forwarding; routes important callers to alternate phone numbers. You decide which calls are forwarded by building a list of up to twelve numbers.
Offers a simple and effective "find
me" service, in real time, for subscribers who are on the move
and don't want to miss an important call. It is ideal for small office/home
office, small business operators, and mobile subscribers (such as real
estate agents and sales professionals). A call to a single directory
number rings up to five different telephone numbers (EAS-Extended Area
Service as well as toll). Toll charges will apply. Whichever phone goes
off hook first receives the call, whether in the office, at home or
mobile. Any home or remote telephone may be used to activate/deactivate
the feature and make changes to the directory numbers in the ring list.
Call Forward Remote Activation
Allows you to activate your Call Forwarding from a remote location. For example, you may not know a number for the place you will be until you arrive. This feature allows for Call Forwarding to be activated when you know the number.
