Sasktel Internet Callwaiting won't work on my new XP computer but the guy at the phone company said that there is something called modem on hold and i might have it. How do I get it to work?

Are you trying to disable call waiting so when you are on the computer you aren't interrupted by calls? If so go into your internet connection settings, and where the phone number your pc dials to your internet service provider type *70 at the beginning. This either makes your phone line busy or I think if you have voice mail it sends the call directly to voice mail.

Actually, I want the calls to come through. Break my connection and the phone rings type thing.

I think it may be Netwaiting that your after. Unfortunately i don't know to much about it. You can see if somebody else replies here, or google netwaiting for more.

Oh, sorry! I never mentioned that SaskTel Internet Callwaiting was exclusive to the province of Saskatchewan in Canada. Netwaiting doesn't seem to cover Canada. Well, your help is appreciated but I'll have to do without a call waiting service for a while.
