Phone company services...do I really need them?
Yes! They help you make the most
of your time...and give your business the professional look and
feel of a larger company, too. Caller ID service, for example,
along with a Caller ID box or Caller ID phone, displays your caller's
number before you pick up. Caller ID/Call Waiting gives
you additional convenience: it lets you see who's calling while
you're already on the line.
One of the newest services, Caller
ID/Call Waiting with Disposition, affords even more call-handling
capability. It allows you to either accept the Call Waiting call
(or arrange to talk later), put it on hold while you finish up
with caller #1, send the call directly to voice mail, or bring
it into your existing conversation for a 3-way conference.
Voice mail service records messages when you're on the phone
or away from it, and stores them in a password-protected mailbox.
To retrieve messages, simply pick up the phone. Hear a "stutter"
dialtone? You've got mail!
Order one of our voice mail indicators
and you won't even have to listen for the stutter. You'll see
a message-waiting light flashing on your phone. Questions? E-mail
us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're happy to help.
