Call Waiting

Postby if » Mon Apr 21, 2003 11:36 am



Hope you are fine hope you could help us as you know lots of people in PTCL.

With dial up if one subs cribes to Call Waiting, when the call comes line is dropped.

To disable this feature one need to add some preceeding code to the number dialed so that during the life of that connection call waiting is disabled.

In some countires one need to add *70+ISP nuber to render call witing off during the length of that call.

Could you please find what we need to do in Pakistan?

Thanking you,

Allah Hafiz,

I contact the experts... and they gave me following information :

if CALL WAITING is ACTIVITED and u wanna disable at any time temporary... u can do by simply to dial a code from u'r phone sets and when u wanna enable it by doing another code which is given below.

#43# (Disable)
*43# (Enable)
if u find anything which shows my lack of knowledge,
please guide me... thx

ya if is rite
once in lahore ptcl activated call waiting on certain tel# having bill above some level.. when ppl were using internet ..and in between some one call the tel# currently using inter after fe bells modem use to disconnect.

reason is till now in pakistan our RAS remote access server r of v.90 potocol support and call waiting facility needs v.92 protocol to use interned and modem on hold for specific time.

i think call waiting must be disabled before dialing isp or it should not be activated in normal conditiones
