Phone Features

Caller ID ($3.00/month)

Caller ID with Name ($4.50/month)
The number and/or name of the person calling you will be displayed on or near your phone after the first ring.  Requires display phone or device.

Call Waiting ($1.00/month)
You can use the telephone without worry that you will miss another call.  You will hear a tone that notifies you when another person is calling while you are on the phone.

Call Forwarding ($1.00/month)
Forward all of your incoming calls to another phone.  This can come in handy if you are expecting an important call but need to leave the house.

To Use:

  1. Lift the receiver and listen for the dial tone.
  2. Dial *72, then listen for dial tone.
  3. Now, dial the number where you wish your calls forwarded.
  • When someone answers at the forward number, call forwarding is put in effect.
  • If there is no answer, or the line is busy, hang up and repeat the previous steps. If you do this within two minutes, you will hear two beeps meaning your call forward is in effect.
  1. Once you have activated call forwarding, the phone will make one short ring each time a call is forwarded. However, you can still make outgoing calls from this phone.

To Discontinue Call Forwarding:

  1. Lift the receiver and listen for the dial tone.
  2. Dial *73
  3. Listen for two beeps, call forwarding is now discontinued.

Three Way Calling ($1.00/month)
When you are talking on the telephone with someone, three way calling allows you to add a third person to the call.  It is an easy way to hold a conference with business colleagues or to coordinate family schedules.

To add a third person to the call:

  1. Press and quickly release the flash/switch hook button on your phone to place the first person on hold.
  2. Listen for dial tone
  3. Dial the third person’s phone number
  4. When the third person answers, you can talk privately before making it a three way conversation.
  5. To make the three way connection, press and quickly release the “switch hook”. You can now talk with both people at the same time.

To cancel the three way connection:

  1. If the third person did not answer or you wish to disconnect them, just press and quickly release the flash/switch hook button on your phone.  You’ll be reconnected to the person holding.
  2. If either of the two people hang up, you can continue to talk with the remaining person.
  3. To end the call completely hang up.

Line Blocking (no fee)
This feature allows you to block requested numbers from calling your landline.  You just need to notify CCT of which numbers you would like to block from calling you.

Call Trace ($1.50/month)
Allows you to activate an immediate trace of the last incoming call.  This is useful after receiving a harassing or prank call and you wish to pursue legal action.  To activate after receiving a call you wish to be traced, hang up, go off-hook and listen for dial tone.  Dial *57.  The number will be stored at CCT and will only be released to authorities or the telephone line subscriber.
