Enhanced Services and Features

 

Answering machines are helpful…
limited, but helpful.

Despite their convenience, answering machines eventually stop working. Machines are just that way. But with Voice Mail from Citizens Telephone, you never have to worry about a little machine – which means you won’t get stuck with up-front costs for equipment that may eventually break. Plus, Voice Mail can actually record incoming calls while you’re on the line. So why spend money on old technology? Call Citizens Telephone and order Voice Mail today.660.584.2111, or 800.321.4282.

 

Voice Mail Service

Voice Mail is a computer-based answering service that works between your phone and the switch at the telephone company. It can handle more than one call at a time; and you can mix it with other features, like pagers. You can also retrieve your messages from any phone anywhere. It continues to serve you during a power failure.

 

Toll Control

Toll Control restricts all direct-dialed long distance calls. The restriction can be bypassed by dialing a 6-digit code before dialing the long distance number. This would allow only those members of your household to whom you have given the code the ability to place long distance calls.

 

Nuisance Trap

Nuisance Trap provides the capability of capturing and recording the telephone number of the calling party for each local telephone call to your number. The phone number will be reported to a local law enforcement agency where a report is printed containing the time of the call and the calling party. Nuisance Traps will not be installed unless requested by the subscriber or by a law enforcement agency of the local, state or federal government. The trap must be in place before a call is received. In other words, it will not trace a call made previous to a trap being activated. The name of the offending caller will not be released. Results will only be disclosed to appropriate law enforcement agencies in accordance with applicable law.

 

Conference Bridge

Conference Bridge connects up to 28 “Meet Me” conference lines by telephone without the assistance of an attendant or operator. Conference parties merely dial into the system at a predetermined time and the “System” automatically answers the call and transfers the parties into the conference. You will be billed a service connection charge and a per hour rate for the conversation time on your telephone bill. Any person calling into the conference from outside our area will be billed the standard direct-dial long distance charge on their phone bill.
