This service lets you answer a second call while you are using your telephone.
How It Works
A short tone signals that another person is trying to call you when you are on the phone. The incoming caller only hears the usual ringing signal. You can put one call on hold while handling the second call, or alternate between the two.
To Answer The Second Call
Returning To The First Call
To return to the first call, simply press the switchhook once, firmly (1/2 second), and release it immediately. With this method you can switch between the two calls as frequently as you wish.
How To End Either Conversation
After you have finished talking with either caller, hang up. Your phone will ring and when you answer you will be connected with the person remaining on the line.
To Cancel Call Waiting
Turn on Cancel Call Waiting when you're making an important call and talk as long as you want with no interruptions. The Calling party will receive a recorded message that the call cannot be completed. After you finish your call, Call Waiting returns automatically when you hang up the phone. Cancel Call Waiting assures you of uninterrupted phone calls during important conversations, when talking long distance, or when using your personal computer modem.
