Call Waiting/Caller ID
Call Waiting/Caller ID works in conjunction with Caller ID. If you have Caller ID, this service will allow you to see who is trying to call you while you are on the phone. Your Caller ID box (or phone) will display the caller’s name and number (if available), so that you may decide whether or not to answer the incoming call.

** Caller ID service is susceptible to fraud. Using a practice known as “Caller ID spoofing,” disreputable parties can deliberately falsify the telephone number relayed as the Caller ID number to disguise the identity and originator of the call. Congress is currently considering new laws that would make this practice a crime and permit law enforcement authorities to take action against spoofers.

Note: Service requires compatible phone or Caller ID box.
Extra service charges may apply if added after initial hook-up.
