Call Waiting

The concept of call waiting is one that is no longer new to people. I remember when call waiting first came out, many people were hesitant to sign up because they didn't know who was calling. I know with my family, we have many relatives abroad so call waiting wasn't an option at first.

The last thing we wanted was people calling us long distance and us picking up the phone without being able to talk to them. We didn't want family spending money long distance if we couldn't chat. The same was true for an answering machine--we didn't want people spending money to leave us a message.

With Internet Call Waiting, We Could See Who Was Calling

The great thing about Internet call waiting was, because of the Caller ID, I could see who was calling and decide to pick up the phone (just clicking a button made my phone ring) or decide to let the call go to voice mail. Relatives calling and not getting us was almost a thing of the past. It ended up saving my relatives money which is always a good thing.

With my upgraded Callwave software, I can actually have important calls routed to my cell phone. If I know my family will be out of the house, I can set up the call waiting software so that certain calls (clients or relatives out of town) go straight to my cell phone so I really don't have to keep missing calls. Because of the advances of the call waiting software, you may even end up getting rid of the service on your regular phone.
