Call Forwarding

Caller ID Name and Number
Caller ID will let you know who is calling before you answer the telephone. Caller ID information is sent to the called party between the first and second ring. Caller ID requires a display unit, which will also store names and telephone numbers of recent callers.
Caller ID On Call Waiting
This feature delivers caller name and number information on an incoming call while the subscriber is on another call.
Conference Calling
Conference Calling (also called Three Way Calling) allows you to talk to two different people at the same time, to add a second person to your call or to put one call on hold and make a second call. Three way calling can be used for local or long distance calls.

Conference Calling Plus allows you to transfer a call to a third telephone number or it will allow you to hang up on a Conference Call and the other two parties can continue their conversation. You can hang up without disconnecting the other two parties.
Continuous Redial

Last Call Return
Last Call Return gives you the number of the last incoming call and allows you to return the call, whether the call was answered or not.

Speed Dialing
Speed Calling allows you to reach up to 30 frequently called numbers by dialing just one or two digits instead of the entire phone number.
Teen Service*
Teen service is a second telephone number that shares an existing telephone line. Teen service is particularly useful if there are teenagers in the home. A distinctive ring of the teen service tells you that the incoming call is for the teenager. Teen service is also useful for someone that is running a small business out of the home. Call Waiting will also give a distinct double tone when the teen service number is called. All long distance originates from the main number.
