Caller ID?

Hi, I don't want to miss a call while am on the
internet. I saw the previous discussion and I have
call waiting service, I tried "s10=1" without luck.
Now I am thinking mayber caller ID service will be
serve my purpose, if I put caller ID on the computer desk,
will it display information if sb tried to call me
when I am online?

Configure Dial Up Networking as if you did *NOT* have call-waiting.
Then, while you are online, the "alert" will interrupt your session,
and your modem *MAY* be sensitive-enough that it will hang-up;
however, it may be "resilient" enough to ignore the temporary-interruption.

Caller-ID shows you the number of the *first* person to call you.
You need "advanced Caller-ID" (or whatever name your telephone-company uses)
to get the Caller-ID information *with* the "alert" message
about the *second* person to call you.

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.
