Tired of a busy signal? Let Automatic Callback keep trying the busy line- and tell you when it’s free. You simply dial the number you wish to reach. If the line is busy, hang up the phone. Then, pick up the receiver again. When you receive a dial tone, dial *66. A voice prompt will let you know the line is busy and that the system will keep trying for 30 minutes to reach your party. When the line becomes free, you will receive a special ring to let you know the line is now available. If you pick up the receiver, the party’s number is automatically dialed. There’s no need to waste time dialing and dialing. If you forget the feature is active and leave the house, the party will not be called and the feature expires after 30 minutes. If you receive a call while you are waiting for the callback, no problem. The system will remind you when your phone is free.

Two things are really frustrating. One is getting a busy signal when you’re trying to reach your own home; the other is missing an important call because someone in the house is using the phone. Call waiting stops these problems. A gentle tone tells you when someone is trying to call. You can put one party on hold and talk to another.The cancel call waiting function cancels call waiting for an individual call on a per line basis. This feature can be turned on before or during an important call so you won’t be interrupted by the call waiting beep.

When talking to someone, add a third person to the call. It’s easy to coordinate family schedules or hold a telephone conference with colleagues. It is very simple to get started. Simply call the first party you wish to talk with. Once you have informed the caller about the 3-way call, hit the flash button (or hold down the switch hook for approximately 1 second and let it up). You will get another dial tone. Dial the second party’s number. Inform them about the 3-way call. When you hit the flash button again, all 3 parties should be on the line. You cannot hang up from the conversation without disconnecting the other 2 parties.
Call transfer is similar to 3-way calling, but allows the originator of the call to drop out while leaving the other 2 connected.
