With Call Waiting, you can answer a second call while you’re already on the phone. You know someone is trying to call you when you hear a beep. If you don’t answer the first beep, you’ll hear another one in ten seconds.
If you want to end the first conversation and begin the second one, just hang up. Your telephone will immediately ring with the second call.
If you want to answer the second call without ending the first, excuse yourself from the first call, press and release the receiver button quickly. The first call will be put on hold while you are connected to the second call.
To return to the first call, press and release the receiver button again. You can switch back and forth between calls as often as you like.
With Call Waiting you don’t need to worry about missing important calls while you’re on the phone.
You can cancel the CALL WAITING feature for the duration of a call by dialing *70 and waiting about 5 seconds for a second dial tone. After you receive the second dial tone, dial the number you wish to call.
CALL WAITING is cancelled for this call. When you hang up CALL WAITING is restored for the next call.
