to provide you with an ever-increasing range of

plan that’s right for you.
If you have any questions, a Shaw Customer Service
Representative will be happy to help. Please call

Call Forward
Call Forward redirects your incoming calls
to another phone number. You can forward
calls to any local number you choose.
To set up Call Forward:
>Lift the receiver and dial * 7 2 .
> When you hear the dial tone, dial the 10-digit number
you want your calls forwarded to. If you want calls
forwarded to your voicemail, dial the number that
corresponds to the area you live (see Appendix A).
> Once your call is answered, you can hang up. Call
Forward is now in effect.
> Your call must be answered in order for call forwarding
to be initialized.
If the line is busy repeat the steps above.
You will hear a confirmation tone to let
you know Call Forward is in effect.
To cancel Call Forward:
>Lift the receiver and dial * 7 3 .
> When you hear a series of beeps, this indicates Call
Forward has been cancelled.
> You can only cancel Call Forwarding from the phone
you activated it with.
While Call Forward is in effect:
> You may still make calls from your phone.
> Callers will receive a busy signal when the number that
your calls are forwarded to is busy.
> Calls that are unanswered at the forwarded number will
not route to your Voicemail.
> Call Waiting is inoperable. You will not receive a
Call Waiting signal, and the call will automatically
be forwarded.
> You will hear an announcement that “the feature is
already successfully activated” if you try to set up Call
Forward when it’s already in operation.
Call Waiting
With Call Waiting, you’ll know if another
call is coming in when you’re already on
the line. If you have a caller ID phone, the
names and numbers of incoming calls will
be displayed when you are on the phone.
When you are on the phone and someone
else is calling you:
> You’ll hear a single tone when another call is waiting. If
you have Call Waiting with Call Display you will hear a
series of tones.
> Press and release the receiver-disconnect button (or
link or flash). Caller #1 is now on hold.
> You can now speak privately to caller #2.
> Press the receiver-disconnect button again (or link or
flash) to return to caller #1.
Note: Call Waiting will not work if a phone
extension is in use. Extension users must
hang up during all switching between calls.
To temporarily cancel Call Waiting:
Before you make a call:
>Dial * 7 0 . Listen for two beeps.
>Listen until no further beeps are heard and
make your call.
> Call Waiting will be restored when you hang up.
What happens when using Call Waiting:
> Callers will hear a normal ring instead of a busy
signal when you are already on the phone. If you have
temporarily turned Call Waiting off, second callers will
hear a busy signal or be routed to your Voicemail, if
you subscribe to Voicemail Services.
> Waiting calls that are not answered will be routed to
Voicemail if you subscribe to Voicemail. You can find
the telephone number of the second call by using the
Call Return service. (See page 8 for more information.)
>If you lose a call, hang up. The phone will automatically
ring and the call will be re-established.
> Call Waiting does not work when you are on a 3-Way
Calling call. Additional callers will be routed to
Voicemail or receive a busy signal.
Call Display
Call Display shows an incoming caller’s
name and telephone number (if available)
on a caller ID unit, or a caller ID-equipped
phone, before you answer.
To use Call Display:
You don’t need to do anything to use Call
Display – just watch the display screen on
your caller ID-equipped phone or caller ID
unit when a call comes in. After the first
full ring, the phone number and name will
appear if the call is from an area where
Call Display service is available.
“Unknown Number” and “Unknown
Name” will be displayed if the call is
from a pay phone, some cellular phones,
areas where Call Display features are not
available, or an operator-assisted call where
operator assisted blocking was requested.
“Private Number” and “Private Name”
will be displayed if the caller activated
Call Display Blocking.
To use Call Display Blocking:
If you do not want your name and phone
number displayed when you make a call,
you can activate Call Display Blocking.
>Dial * 6 7 before placing a call.
> “Private Number” and “Private Name” will
be displayed.
If you have a non-published telephone
number, but wish to display your name
and telephone number, dial * 8 2
before placing a call.
3-Way Calling
Call Return
3-Way Calling lets you talk with two other
people in one call.
With Call Return, you can dial the last
number that called you whether you
answered the call or not. Call Return works
with direct-dialed calls from most areas.
To use 3-Way Calling:
> Phone the first person and tell them you’re going to
bring another participant in.
To use Call Return:
> Press the receiver-disconnect (or link or flash) button
to place them on hold.
>Dial * 6 9 to hear a recording of the phone
number of the last incoming call.
> When you hear the dial tone, call the next participant.
> Call Return will not work when the call is from a private
number, a blocked number, or 1-800 or 1-900 numbers.
In some cases, Call Return will not work outside of your
local calling area.
> When the second participant answers, press the
receiver-disconnect button again (or link or flash). All
three people will be connected in one call.
3-Way Calling tips:
>If you are unable to reach the second participant,
press the receiver disconnect button (or link or flash)
twice to connect back with the first person you called.
>If you reach a participant’s voicemail, press * three
times to disconnect.
> As long as you remain on the line, either one of the
other participants can hang up and you can continue to
talk to the remaining person.
>During a 3-Way Call, Call Waiting will not work. The
caller will be routed to Voicemail if you subscribe to
Voicemail Services, or they will receive a busy signal.
> All extension phones must be hung up in order to use
3-Way Calling.
Call Return cannot return a call to a
number that has Call Forward activated.
You will receive a message that Call
Return does not follow Call Forward.
Calls cannot be returned when calls are
placed from:
> Phones using Call Display Blocking features – you will
hear a voice message saying that the call was
marked “private.”
> Some pay phones, business lines, cell phones and longdistance connections.
>The operator.
Anonymous Call
Rejection
With Anonymous Call Rejection you can
avoid receiving a call from numbers that
have a privacy feature activated such as
Caller ID Blocking. When Anonymous
Call Rejection is activated your phone will
not ring. Instead, the caller will hear a
recording that informs them that you do
not accept calls from blocked numbers.
They will then have to hang up and
unblock their number to have their call
placed through to you.
To use Anonymous Call Rejection:
>Lift the receiver and dial * 7 7 .
> You will hear a recording confirming that Anonymous
Call Rejection is activated.
> Anyone calling with a blocked number will hear a
recorded message indicating that your telephone line
is not accepting blocked calls.
To cancel Anonymous Call Rejection:
>Lift the receiver and dial * 8 7 .
> You will hear a recording confirming that Anonymous
Call Rejection is deactivated.

Shaw Distinctive Ring
With Shaw Distinctive Ring you can have
up to three additional telephone numbers
assigned to your home phone line. It’s
not an extra line, but a feature that allows
your home telephone to ring differently
depending on what number a caller dials.
This allows you to assign a distinctive
ring to any member in the house so you’ll
know who the call is for based on the
ring tone. You can also assign a Shaw
Distinctive Ring to your fax machine so
you can tell regular calls from incoming
faxes. Call 310-SHAW for more details.
