Most Popular Features

  • Call-Waiting

    Never miss another important call while using your phone line. Call Waiting notifies you that you have a second call waiting with a short tone every 10 seconds. The caller will hear the standard ring tone until you decide to take the call or let it roll to voicemail.

  • Basic Voicemail

    Basic Voicemail includes a voice mailbox that stores messages left by callers when the line is busy or unanswered. A distinct stutter-tone notifies you of new stored messages when you pick up the phone. Check your messages from any touchtone phone.

  • Premium Voicemail

    Premium Voicemail provides you with all the features of Basic Voicemail with the option of forwarding those voicemails to your email inbox. Our Premium package includes: 100 messages, up to 30 minutes of total time, and a 120 second limit per message.

  • Caller ID

    Knowing who is on the line before picking up the phone gives you the ability to decide whether to accept the call or let the machine get it. The Caller ID display device (sold separately) identifies the incoming caller, including their number, date, and time of call.

  • Private Number Blocking

    Protect your line from unidentified callers. Private Number Blocking screens blocked numbers with an automated message advising them that you do not accept calls from anonymous numbers, and how to unblock their number in order to reach you.

  • Solicitor Block

    Solicitor Block plays a warning message at the beginning of each incoming call that you do not accept calls from telemarketers, and instructs them to add your number to the ‘Do Not Call’ list. You can opt to turn off the automated message for specified callers.


Other Calling Features

  • Call Forwarding Fixed

    Accept important home phone calls even when out running errands or picking up the kids from soccer. Our Fixed Call Forwarding feature gives you the possibility to forward incoming calls to a pre-selected number. Simply turn the feature on or off as needed.

  • Call Forwarding Variable

    Our Variable Call Forwarding option comes with the same features as the Fixed plan, but with the option of choosing between more than one number. Forward your home phone calls to the office, your spouse, or your cell phone when expecting an important call.

  • Call Forwarding-Busy

    The Call Forwarding Busy feature is comparable to the Fixed feature, with the added benefit of forwarding incoming calls to a pre-selected number when the line is busy or unanswered. Activate this option when you expect to make a lengthy call.

  • Caller ID/Call Waiting

    This option combines the practicality of Caller ID and the convenience of call waiting. Place an existing call on hold to answer a second call from a known number. You can even toggle between two calls. Must have Call Waiting and Caller ID features activated.

  • Three-Way Call

    This feature lets you add a third person on a different line to a dialogue. Three-Way calling lets you conference a much needed second opinion or tie-breaker into the exchange, or strike up a conversation with two friends in separate locations at once.

  • Distinctive Ring

    This feature gives you up to three distinctive rings in addition to your regular home phone ring. All calls come through on the same line to your home phone, but unique rings can help you distinguish between a call from your mother and business.

  • Non-Listed Number

    Every home phone number gets listed in the telephone book automatically. The Non-Listed Number option eliminates your number from the automatic public listing, but still allows someone access when using directory assistance.

  • Non-Published Number

    In addition to the features provided in the Non-Listed Number, this option bars directory assistance from providing your number to callers. With this option, only individuals that you personally provide your number will be able to call you at home.

  • Remote Call Forwarding

    Similar to the basic Call Forwarding feature, Remote Call Forwarding lets you select to forward your calls after you have already left the house. Maybe your trip to the grocery store has had a few detours, but unforeseen delays don’t have to keep you out of touch.

  • Toll Restriction

    The Toll Restriction feature lets you choose to restrict outgoing calls that require an additional charge, such as dialing long distance, or internationally. This feature helps eliminate unintentional expenses.

  • Called Number Rejection

    Our Called Number Rejection feature lets you have the option to block up to nine known numbers. Simply indicate which telephone numbers you wish to block and they will be blocked automatically.

  • Caller ID Name Blocking

    This feature gives you the option to call from an anonymous number, invisible to Caller ID devices, when the situation calls for privacy. To make your information visible, simply press *82 before dialing the call.

  • Cancel Call-Waiting

    This feature gives you the option to call from an anonymous number, invisible to Caller ID devices, when the situation calls for privacy. To make your information visible, simply press *82 before dialing the call.
