Local Talk

These features are standard with Local Talk service. You can opt out of any feature you don't want.

Caller ID  Displays the incoming caller's name and/or number. To enable this feature you must use a telephone capable of displaying Caller ID information.

Voice Mail  If you don't answer, the caller hears a recording that prompts him to leave a message. Retrieve the messages by pressing *86. 

Call Screening  Reject incoming calls from a list of up to 13 numbers. When a call comes in from one of these numbers, the caller hears a message that says the party they're calling is not accepting calls at this time.

Call Forwarding  Send calls to another number while you are away, and back to your home phone when you return.

Reject Anonymous Calls  Some callers block their identity, so your caller ID displays "private" or "anonymous" when they call. This feature enables you to reject unidentified calls. Callers with blocked identity hear a message that says you do not accept anonymous calls, and they should unblock their line and call again in order to reach you. 

Speed Call 8  This convenience feature lets you assign two-digit codes for up to eight frequently-called numbers. To place a call to a speed number, just press the two-digit code on your phone keypad.  

Call Waiting  If a second call comes in while you're on the phone, you'll hear a tone to let you know that a call is waiting. You can switch over to the second call while keeping the first call on hold if you want.
