Repeat Dial (*66)

If you receive a busy signal you can hang up, pick up the receiver again and dial *66. The system will continue to call the last number you dialed for up to 30 minutes. Once that line is free, your phone will ring with a distinctive ring to notify you. You may continue to make and receive phone calls normally while this feature is activated.

Cancel Repeat Dial (*86)- Disable repeat dial before the 30 minute time frame is over.

Return Call (*69)

Return the call of the last person who called you. Like Repeat Dial, if the line is busy it will continue to redial the number for up to 30 minutes.

Note: If the caller is calling you from a cellular phone, this feature will tell you the number of the last caller but you will receive a busy signal if you attempt to dial them back through the Return Call menu. Simply hang up and dial the number directly.

Cancel Return Dial (*89)– Disable return call before the 30 minute time frame is over.

Call Forward (*72)

Forwards incoming calls to another telephone number. If you forward calls to a long distance number, long distance charges may apply depending on your WavePhone™ package. To activate Call Forwarding, press *72, wait for the confirming beeps, and then enter the phone number you would like calls forwarded to. You will immediately get a courtesy call at the phone number where calls will be forwarded.

Three Way Calling

Bridge together two lines in addition to your own so that three separate individuals can speak on a single call.

  1. While on a call with one of the individuals you wish to conference with, press the receiver button (as though hanging up) for one second. You will get a dial tone and the other caller will be put on hold.


  2. Dial the number of the third party. When you get an answer, press the receiver button briefly again and all three parties will be connected. If the third party does not answer the phone, press the receiver button two times to cancel. You will still be connected to the first call.


  3. When either of the people you called hangs up, you remain connected to the other person. When you hang up, everyone is disconnected.

Note: Some phones have a "flash" or "link" button. Use this instead of the receiver button to change lines. While using three way calling, call waiting is unavailable.
