Calling Features


Calling features                             

Call Forwarding    

This feature permits you to have calls to your number forwarded to another number when you plan to be away.  Your phone will ring one time for each call, but you can't answer it.
    Turning Call Forwarding on:
        1.  Dial 72. Listen for the dial tone.
        2.  Dial the number to which calls are to be forwarded.  (If this is a toll call from your telephone, you will be charged for all forwarded calls.)  After receiving confirmation tone, wait 4 seconds for call to complete.  If called party answers, notify the of the call forwarding condition.  If the line is busy or the call is not answered, hang up.  The called number is stored and forwarding is activated whether the call is answered or not.

Three-Way Calling

This feature allows you to make a call while holding a previously established connection.  You can then have a three-way conference.
    To establish a second connection, do the following:
        1.  Flash your hook switch.  Listen for three bursts of dial tone.
        2.  Dial number of third party.  (If third party doesn't answer, flash your hook switch to return to the original call.)
        3.  When the third party answers, flash your hook switch to set up a three-way conference.  If either of the other two parties hangs up first, you will still be connected to the remaining part.  If however, you hang up first, all connections are released.

Call waiting

The call waiting feature enables you to recognize and answer an incoming call received while you are busy with a previously established call.  You are notified of the incoming call by a burst of dial tone (call waiting tone).  You can then flash your hook switch to place the original call on hold and answer the incoming call.  A second hook switch flash reconnects you to the original call.  Subsequent hook switch flashes will switch you from one call to the other.  If, when you hear the call waiting tone, you wish to terminate the original call, simply hang up.  The waiting call will then ring your line and you can answer in the normal manner.
