With Call Forwarding you can be sure you'll never miss another call, even when you're away from your wireless phone. This invaluable feature directs incoming calls to another telephone number of your choice. Calls can be forwarded to a local or long distance number.
Call-waiting allows you to receive an additional incoming call while you're already talking on the phone. Instead of giving the caller a busy signal, a beep tone--which is inaudible to the party to whom you are speaking--alerts you that another caller is trying to reach you; whether or not you choose to answer the call is up to you.
When the phone rings, you no longer need to answer it to know who it is. With Caller I-D, you'll see the caller's number on your digital phone display before you answer the call.
Conference calling, which is sometimes referred to as 'three-way calling,' allows you to carry on a conversation from your wireless phone with two or more people. To add a third person to your call, simply press and release the receive button once and wait for a series of beeps, then dial the number of the third person and wait for an answer.
When you're out and about, you can avoid the hassle of trying to find an outlet for your laptop and instead hook your laptop computer up to your cellular phone to check your e-mail. It's easy. Just make sure your laptop has a P-C modem slot and that you have a P-C modem card.
You can send a fax from your car, the airport or anywhere you happen to be using your wireless phone and a portable fax machine. Or your wireless phone and laptop computer with a fax modem. All you have to do is connect your wireless phone directly to your laptop, or portable fax machine with a simple data cable.
As businesses start to realize the myriad of applications the Internet has to their everyday operations, more and more people are using the Internet on a daily basis. And, more and more people are accessing the Internet from places other than their office.
Speed dialing is a feature that allows you to program your phone to dial the numbers you use most frequently at the touch of a button. This is a particularly handy feature to have when using a wireless phone since you may often find yourself in places where you don't have easy access to your address book or rolodex.
For people who use their wireless phone a lot, voice-mail can be an important feature. It answers your calls with a recorded greeting when you're talking to someone else or when your phone's turned off.
