Software that can notify me phone calls when I am online.

Are there any FREE software available that can at least notify me of phone calls when I am online? I want a such software that is FREE and do not need to subscribe and pay monthly fee as a service.

¿D'you mean you want to be notified when, WHILE YOU'RE CONNECTED TO INTERNET, you receive a call?. If so, you have to use a special kind of modem capable of recognize incoming wait-calls.

If you have call waiting, and you recieve a call, the beep can sometimes cause problems with your internet access.  Only a special modem that recognizes this tone, and sends a flag would do what you are asking.

Hardware is not free, but talk is cheap! : )

Reclaim your office - Try the MB 660 headset now!

High level of background noise often makes it difficult for employees to concentrate fully on their jobs – or to communicate clearly on calls. The MB 660 headset helps you create a disruption free workspace.

Because you are using the full analog part of your phone line, you will not be able to be notified from your phone connection. You can get voice mail, that will let the other party leave a message.

You also can get call forwarding, which will redirect to another phone line. I actually heard of a product that lets you redirect to a number, which accesses the internet, then emails you who called, but the program name escapes me right now.

There also was a product that Best Buy used to sell which would let the internet "Piggyback" on the Digital end of the line, so you could recieve calls. I haven't heard about it lately, so I do not know if it is still around.

All of these options are probobly going to cost you something.

Just snag a little caller ID box, that will pick up incoming calls and numbers while you're occupying the line even.  Not free, but real nice.

There is no Free software, but there is a moden i use alot when talking to my customers.  It is the Boca Tidlewave modem.  It has the ability to recognize a call waiting tone.  Answer the call waiting tone and then after you are done talking etc... switch back to the internet.  It also has the ability to do a shotgun like technology with other Boca Tidlewave modem.

What he mentions will not keep you connected to the internet. That will reconnect to the internet when you are done talking.
