Support Settings About Caller ID with Call Waiting

Introduction

Do you know you can see the number of an incoming call even if you’re already on the phone chatting with someone else? You can, with Caller ID with Call Waiting.

How it works

Enjoy the convenience of Caller ID and Call Waiting — at the same time. Now it’s easy to decide whether to pause your current call to take an incoming call.


When you hear the Call Waiting tone, look for the number of the incoming call — and where available, the name of the caller — on the Caller ID screen. If you want to answer it, press and release either the switchhook or flash button. If you don’t answer the call, it will be forwarded right to voicemail.


You’ll need a compatible phone that works with Caller ID with Call Waiting. We don’t provide this equipment, but you can purchase one in a local store. Please note that some types of calls can’t be displayed with Caller ID with Call Waiting.
