    Phone Tool (XP/Office 2003)

    Is there an onboard program in XP or Office 2003 that in some away advises an incoming call when I am on dial-up, and can put the dial-up on hold to answer?

    Thanks.

    Your question belongs to "Software Finds and Wants" forum. Please post your questions to appropriate forums next time.

    Windows XP or Microsoft Office do not have such capabilities.
    There are many such programs, for instance, PhoneTray Dialup 2.21 R2

    You can use Google or your favorite search engine to find programs.

    Regards,

    Hello Brother Patrick

    Sorry, I hadn't realised that KaplinB was in charge of the Lounge. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    I think you were quite right to ask this question in the XP area, it is normally the Moderators or Administrators who make this decision if they think it needs to be move to a relevant area, it was wrong of him to say that to you.

    Unfortunately XP does not have this feature installed, my the times I wanted that before I went to broadband. There are utilities that do this type of thing but there is a cost to them which I am unsure you may want to fork out on, as you may as well put the moneys towards a broadband connection. I hope that helps?

    Hi Jerry,

    Yes indeed, it did help and I thank you very much. Sometimes I run across snippiness, though I must admit I'm not able to recall any ever here. This is a kind and generous group of folks who have helped me to figure out what I've messed up and how to fix it. With one foot in the 15th century and the other in the here and now, I'm somewhat technologically challenged.

    Otherwise - as I'm lucky indeed to even have dial-up waaaay out here in the woods, I am cool with missing the occasional call. XP does lots of stuff, I wondered if it might do that . . . too.

    Thanks for your kindness. I'm grateful. I wish you peace. The aged and wind-worn rocks are a good place for some of us.
