How call answering works

  • Call answering answer a call – A call is answered by call answering when you do not answer your phone after a designated number of rings, or when you are already on the phone.
  • The message is stored in your mailbox – the caller hears your greeting and can then leave a message. The message is stored in your “mailbox” until you listen to it. You can then delete the message or keep it to play again later.
  • How your mailbox works – Your mailbox contains your messages, your personalized greeting, and your password. You play your messages at your home phone or any other touch tone phone by calling a system access number to reach your mailbox. You also record your greeting and create your password through your mailbox. Members of a family or any other group can have private submailboxes with their own password and greeting. All your interaction with the call answering system is confidential; no one else has access to your mailbox.
  • Call answering guides you – At each step prompts tell you which key to press or what your options are.
  • Your telephone – Any telephone works with call answering; no special equipment is required. For complete system use, a touch tone telephone is required.

With Caller ID, you can know who is calling even before you pick up the phone. Caller ID shows the caller’s name and phone number on a special display unit (sold separately). Most units also give the date and time of each call. Then, you can decide whether to answer the phone. Per call blocking of number display is available to all customers. Simply press *67 (or dial 1167) before the telephone number you are calling.

If someone else is trying to call you while you’re already on the phone, Call Waiting will alert you with a “beep.” You may then put the first person on hold while you catch your second call. Now you can keep on talking even while you wait for another important call.

  • Here’s How Your Call Waiting Feature Alerts You
    • A beep tells you another call is waiting. Only you hear this tone.
    • Another reminder will be heard 10 seconds later if the waiting call remains unanswered.
    • The second caller hears only the normal ringing tone.
  • To Answer The Second Call
    • Depress the switchhook for about one second to place your call on hold.
    • You will automatically be connected with the second caller.
  • To Alternate Between Calls
    • Depress the switchhook for about one second to alternate between calls.
    • Each conversation is private and cannot be heard by the other caller.
  • To End Either Call
    • Simply hang up
    • Your telephone will ring
    • When you answer it, you’ll be connected with the other caller.
  • To Temporarily Cancel Call Waiting Before Placing A Call
    • Press *70, wait for dial tone and make your call.

Now you can transfer an incoming call to another number. Call forwarding is great for the business person who wants to catch after-hours business calls at home or for anyone who does not want to miss an important call.

To Forward Your Calls

  • Lift the handset and listen for the dial tone.
  • Dial 7-2-# (on a rotary dial phone, dial 7-2 and wait four seconds).
  • Again, listen for the dial tone.
  • Now, dial the number where you wish your calls forwarded. (Speed Calling codes may be used if you also have this feature.)
  • When someone answers at the forwarded number, your Call Forwarding feature is now in effect.

If there is no answer, or if the line is busy, hang up and repeat the previous steps. If you do this within two minutes, you’ll hear two beeps meaning your Call Forwarding feature is now working. Once you have activated Call Forwarding, the phone will make one short ring each time a call is forwarding. You can still make outgoing calls from this phone. If you wish to change the number your calls are being transferred to, just deactivate Call Forwarding (see below) and then follow the steps above for Call Forwarding.

To Deactivate Call Forwarding

  • Lift the handset and listen for the dial tone.
  • Dial 7-3-# (on a rotary dial phone, dial 7-3 and wait four seconds).
  • Listen for two beeps. Call Forwarding is now deactivated and calls will ring on your phone.

$2.50 per month

Now you can turn an everyday two-way phone call into a three-way conference conversation.

To Add A Third Person To Your Call

  • First, depress the switchhook for about one second. This will place the first call on hold.
  • Listen for the dial tone. Then dial the third person. (Speed calling codes may be used if you also have this feature.)
  • When the third person answers, you may talk privately with this person before you make the call three-way.
  • To make the call three-way, depress the switchhook for about one second to add the person on hold. Your three-way call is now underway.

If for some reason the call to the third person is not completed or you decide not to add the person to the call, depress the switchhook twice to resume your conversation with the person on hold.

To Disconnect The Third Person

  • Press the switchhook for about a second. You will now have only the original party on the line.
  • If either of the other two people hangs up, you can continue to talk to the one remaining.

To Disconnect Completely

  • Simply hang up.
