Is there any free software that helps to alert incoming phone calls while you are connected to the internet? Noone can get through my phone and it sucks. I live outside the US.
I connect the net via internal modem on my notebook.

Thank you

well .....

AOL offers call waiting feature as a premium service.

also i think the new V.92 modem has a "modem on hold" feature but u may have to install some software which comes with the modem i suppose.

Whatever you do, DO NOT GET AN EMERSON SWITCHBOARD. Or that other product that does the same thing. They make a great $40 door stop but they are useless for modem-on-hold.
I haven't used any of these, but based on many reviews I would say go with Callwave. The V.92 feature isn't particularly reliable.
