PHONE CALL WHILE ONLINE

By HARD AT IT ·
IS THERE A SELF SUPORTED PROGRAM OR UTILITY THAT HAS A SIMPLE TOOLBAR FLASHING ICON THAT INDICATES SOMEONE HAS TRIED TO CALL ME WHILE I AM ON LINE.
IM NOT LOOKING FOR ONLINE VIOCE MAIL OR CALLER ID. IF I HAD AN ALERT FUNCTION I WOULD HAVE THE OPTION OF SIGNING OFF AND DIALING *69 OR MY BELL VIOCE MAIL.

ANY INFORMATION OR LINKS TO THIS QUESTION
WILL BE GRAETLY APPRECIATED


SINCERELY

i GOT THIS KIND OF PROGRAM,FROM BT BUT I HAVE SEEN QUITE A FEW AROUND.tHE PROBLEM IS THAT YOU MUST HAVE THE OPTION TO DIVERT YOUR CALLS TO ANOTHER NUMBER IF YOU WANT THIS TO WORK.iT SENDS THE CALL TO THE SERVER AND YOU HAVE THREE OPTIONS:aNSWER WITHYOUR PC (MICROPHONE AND HEADPHONES ),OR WITH YOUR NORMAL PHONE,OR YOU CAN DECLINE THE CALL ALLTOGETHER IN WHICH CASE THE CALLER DOESNT RECEIVE ANY MESSAGE.iNE THE SECOND OPTION THE CALLER GETS A MESSAGE SAYING THAT YOIU ARE CONNECTED TO THE NET AND YOU ARE DISCONNECTING TO RECEIVE THE CALL ,SO PLEASE REDIAL.
iF YOU WANT I CAN SEND YOU MINE BUT I AM NOT SURE IT WORKS IN THE usa (if you are located there)

Robert have you heard of Net2phone. It is a program from netscape that not only allows to call people online but also allows you to recieve calls while you still are browsing. Calls are very cheap. 5 cents a minute in the US. So try this out. You may even save money on long distance charges.

I used to use a program called "CallWave". You have to setup call forwarding on busy w/your telephone company, but the program itself is free to use. How it works: When someone calls while you are online, the caller is transferred to the CallWaveVoice Mail service where they are notified that you are online and instructed to leave a message. You are then able to listen as they leave the message. It doesn't have callerID (no program has that yet), but it does let you know someone has called. Check it out at http://www.callwave.com.
