    Hello,
    I don't have dial-up to test with so I am needing some advice for a good call waiting program for a dial-up user. One of those programs that tells you when you have an incoming call (sometimes with caller ID) and allows you to switch over to answer the phone and then resume once you've hung up. This way you don't miss any calls and you don't have to connect & reconnect. He used to have 2 lines (1 phone, 1 dial-up) but narrowed it down to just one.

    Once I have a definate recommendation, it will be a few weeks before I can test it out so I am hoping I can have it narrowed down to a really good (free) one before I leave town. This is for an in-law on a pc I built for him and he is forced to use dial-up.

    Thanks in advance :)

    It would appear that Phone tray dialup only works with a V92 modem.

    Thanks Spanner,
