The Call Alert window that you receive on your computer screen to notify you of an incoming call shows you the name, number, city, and state of the calling party (where Caller ID is available). AOL Call Alert gives you several choices (explained below) of how to handle incoming calls.
- Answer: Allows you to answer an incoming call on your home phone and speak with the caller. If you choose to answer the call on your home phone, your AOL session will be temporarily disconnected and the call will be routed to your home phone so that you can receive the call. Once your call is completed, you may sign back on to the AOL service.
- Take Call On: You can select to transfer the call to your computer, or a different phone number. When you receive the Call Alert notification and click Take Call On, you can select where would you like the call to be transferred to. You have three options (explained below) listed on the Call Alert window.
