We have just signed up for call waiting from BT. We tested to see if it worked by ringing our house phone from my mobile phone. This didn't work, is there anything in my computer which I need to access or turn on or off or some softwhere which I need to download?

Thanx In Advance

BT = British Telecom

It is a company in england where you get your phone line and that from.

Sorry I didn't realise!

Is it something wrong with the computer or the phone company?

Is this posted in the correct place?

I think the thread is in the right place as long as the operating system is one of these above.


OK... I don't understand exactly what the problem is... let me reread it

what do you mean by phone lines?

do you mean where you plug in your phone to the wall because we have 2 but 1 doesnt work. My internet and phone cable are both plugged into this splitter thing which is plugged into the wall.

yep I am using Win 98

It rings then says it is trying to connect you and the person knows you are waiting.
