On my remote landline, when I am on a call with Betty, I hear Call Waiting beeps signalling that there is another caller.
Reason for question:
Not being a prisoner, I do not have a Cell - just the landline. I don't have to ask Shaw for my messages (Vm), I get them right off the phone Base. Sometimes, when speaking to Betty, I hear the call waiting beeps and would prefer not to answer, but always do - in case it's Veronica.
It would be nice if I didn't have to answer a Call Waiting, in case it's Jughead, and any unanswered Call Waiting were redirected to an Vm answering device, be it mine or Shaw's, after the already set number of rings on my L/L?
Thank you for your interest in responding,
- the politically correct version of a HERmit.
If you do not answer the call waiting beep, the other person calling you just continue to hear the phone ring. This also applies to your second question. Unfortunately, Jughead will just continue to hear the phone ring out until they hang up, he won't be directed to any voicemails (both Shaw and your phone base).

Many thanks Tony - by the way, were it not for Christmas, there'd be no "Holidays", "Happy" or otherwise. "Happy Holidays" is just the retailers way of converting non-Christians into buy stuff for their Muslim, Taoist, Buddhists etcetera friends and family. Your version of greeting is insulting to Canadians, and even non-Christians that don';t mind the extra pay and day off anyway
