Call Waiting/Caller ID works in conjunction with Caller ID. If you have Caller ID, this service will allow you to see who is trying to call you while you are on the phone. Your Caller ID box (or phone) will display the caller’s name and number (if available), so that you may decide whether or not to answer the incoming call.
To Use Call Waiting/Caller ID
- If you decide to take the call, depress and release the hook switch or press FLASH to place your current call on hold and connect to the other calling party.
- To alternate between calling parties, depress and release the hook switch for each transfer.
To Cancel Call Waiting/Caller ID
- Press * 7 0.
- Call Waiting/Caller ID will automatically be restored when you complete the call.
** Caller ID service is susceptible to fraud. Using a practice known as “Caller ID spoofing,” disreputable parties can deliberately falsify the telephone number relayed as the Caller ID number to disguise the identity and originator of the call. Congress is currently considering new laws that would make this practice a crime and permit law enforcement authorities to take action against spoofers.

Note: Service requires compatible phone or Caller ID box.
Extra service charges may apply if added after initial hook-up.
