The unit also features call waiting, caller ID, handset speakerphone, four-way conferencing, call transfer between handsets, DirectLink two-way radio capability and a “do not disturb” setting.

The Packet8 residential broadband phone service offers unlimited local and long distance calling to the United States and Canada for $19.95 per month with voicemail, call waiting, caller ID, local number portability (LNP), unlimited in-network calling, directory assistance ($.75 per call), call forwarding and call blocking.
