I have a dial up Juno account. While on the internet my phone would ring twice and hangup, not allowing me to answer it. Is there a way to temporarily disconnect from the internet when the phone rings and be able to answer the phone?

What's dial-up???? J/K, I'm not sure. The only thing I remember from dial-up was adding *70, to cancel call waiting.

Hopefully someone else knows.

there is always callwave, its an interent answering machine, so that while you are online, via dialup, you can get a message deleivered to you right there on teh computer. I used to use it all the time. *70 is the route to go with dialup if you have call waiting.

there are some hardware devices out there that allow you to put the dialup on "hold" so you can answer a phone call, but I haven't researched them so I can't give a thumbs up or thumbs down on them.

You could get another phone line, but if you do it would cost the same as high speed for most areas. Plus you get their summer promotions, so that might be an option.
