Call Waiting

Back to User Guides


You can put one call on hold while you take a second call. This service is always active.

No more missed calls thanks to Call Waiting. If you are on the phone and a second call comes in for you, you hear a soft "beep".

To answer the second call:
After you hear the "beep" warning you that you have a call waiting, press the receiver button briefly. Your first call will be placed on hold and you will automatically be connected with the second caller.

To switch from one call to another:
Press the receiver button briefly. Your conversations with each caller remain private. 

To end one of the calls:
Press the receiver button briefly and continue your conversation with the remaining caller.

To activate Call Waiting Cut-Off:
This service also has a Call Waiting Cut-Off feature that allows you to disable Call Waiting temporarily during an important telephone conversation, or during data transmissions by fax or by modem. If you do not disable Call Waiting and you receive a call while you are transmitting data or a fax, your connection will be lost.
