Online Caller Notification Tools

The functions that programs like Callwave can provide are very similar to what South Slope Telephone can offer you for free! If your computer has a modem that uses the v.92 protocol with Modem On Hold† as a supported feature you can take advantage of these features today.

There is one major difference between Modem On Hold† and Callwave. The difference is that Callwave can record a voicemail for you that you can listen to once you connect to the Internet. Both technologies allow you to determine if you have an incoming call and discover the identity of the caller if you have purchased Caller ID service from your telephone company.

Modem On Hold† actually allows you to put the Internet session "on hold" while you take the incoming call. Callwave types of service only allow you to know that a call is coming in and allows you to listen to the message the caller leaves while you are still online.
