Call Waiting

Don't miss an important call because your phone is tied up.

When you are on the phone, Call Waiting lets you know another call is coming through. Your caller doesn't reach an annoying busy signal, and you have the option of answering the incoming call or not.

When you do not want to be notified of an incoming call, you can engage Cancel Call Waiting for the duration of the call. If you are a Call Waiting subscriber who also uses dial-up Internet, using the Cancel Call Waiting function ensures that incoming calls don't disrupt your connection.
