If you’re planning to switch from normal telephone line to VoIP, you do not need to compromise call waiting. Call waiting is a standard VoIP feature. Normal phone companies do not give this service for free. Call waiting is this feature where you can put someone on hold and take another call. This will ensure that you will never miss a call.
When you are speaking with a friend, you will be notified by your VoIP phone. The notification shows as a beep on your phone. VoIP adds to feature by giving you the opportunity to check who is calling you. This will allow you to make a choice of either you want to just take the call or not.
Switching from one call to the next call it is a very simple process. Your phone will have a special button that will allow you to switch calls. And if you want to go back to the original caller just press the button again. This allows for easy switching of calls and is less confusing.
To use call waiting, you will require a special analog phone or a special VoIP phone. Apart from that, you will still require the VoIP service plus a high speed internet connection. Keep in mind, that if you are currently using VoIP than most likely will not need any another equipment. You can be rest assured that most VoIP services give this feature for free. The extensive part of this feature is when you can tell who was calling plus put the call on hold. Even though it has fee, it is more than worth it.
