Telephone Features

Kingdom Telephone has many great features and services. Discover how they can make your life simpler!  To find out more, please select the title of the feature you are interested in.

Calling Party Identity

See who is calling before you answer the phone. 

Monthly Charge: $4.00

How it works:

When you receive a call, the name and number of the person calling you is shown on your Caller ID display screen.

How to use:

When you receive a call, wait until your telephone completes the first ringing signal. The telephone number calling you – and the
name associated with that number – will automatically appear on your display screen. If you choose to answer the call, the name and number will remain on the screen until you or the caller hangs up.

Notes:

  • Subscription to Calling Party Identity requires the purchase of a display telephone or an add-on display unit.
  • If the letter “P” or “Private” appears on your screen, the caller may have blocked the display of their number by pressing *67 (or dialing 1167 on a rotary phone) before placing the call. You can choose whether or not to answer the call.
  • If “unknown name,” “unknown number,” “out of area,” or “O” appears, the caller is in an area that does not support Calling Number services.

Call Forwarding

Let your calls follow you to another number.

Monthly Charge: 75¢

How it works: You can program your calls to ring at another number. Each time a call is forwarded, your phone will make one short ring. It can still be used to make outgoing calls.

To “turn on” the service: Lift the handset and listen for the dial tone.

Press *72. (On a rotary phone, dial 1172.) Listen for dial tone. Dial the number where you want your calls forwarded. When the phone is answered, your Call Forward is in effect.

If the line is busy, or there’s no answer: Hang up. Within two minutes, repeat the steps above. You’ll hear a confirmation tone, letting you know your Call Forward is now working.

To “turn off” the service: Lift the handset and listen for the dial tone. Press *73. (On a rotary phone, dial 1173.) Listen for the confirmation tone, then hang up. Your Call Forward is now “off,” and calls will ring normally on your phone.

To change the “forward to” number: Turn off Call Forward. Repeat the steps above to turn on Call Forward, entering the new “forward to” number.

Note: Dial the number exactly if you are calling directly. For a local number, dial the 7-digit phone number. For a long distance number,
dial “1” plus area code. If you have speed calling, you may dial one of your codes instead.

Call Forward Remote Access


Enables you to turn on, turn off, or change your forwarding number from any location.

Monthly Charge: 75¢

How it works: You can use a touch-tone telephone at another location to change your Call Forward on your home or business phone.
This is not a Call Forward feature by itself. It gives you the ability to control existing Call Forward Features from a remote location.

To access your telephone’s Call Forward service remotely: Lift the handset of any touch-tone phone and listen for the dial tone. Dial the Call Forward access number provided by your telephone company. After the line rings, listen for the special dial tone. Dial the 7-digit home or business telephone number that has the Call Forward feature. Dial your Personal Identification Number (PIN). Listen for the special dial tone. You are now ready to change your Call Forward. Proceed with one of the three Call Forward Functions: Call Forward, Call Forward Busy, Call Forward No Answer.

Call Forward Busy


When your line is busy, your callers can reach someone else.

Monthly Charge: 75¢

To “turn on” the service: Lift the handset and listen for the dial tone.

Press *90. (On a rotary phone, dial 1190.) Listen for dial tone. Dial the number to which you want your calls forwarded. When the phone is answered, your Call Forward Busy is in effect.

To “turn off” the service: Lift the handset and listen for the dial tone. Press *91. (On a rotary phone, dial 1191.) Listen for the confirmation tone, then hang up. Your Call Forward Busy is now “off.”

To change the “forward to” number: Turn off Call Forward Busy (see directions above). Repeat the steps above to turn on Call Forward Busy, entering the new “forward to” number.

Notes: 
Dial the number exactly if you are calling directly. For a local number, dial the 7-digit phone number. For a long distance number, dial “1” plus the area code. If you have speed calling, you may dial one of your codes instead. Will not work with Call Waiting feature.

Call Forward No Answer


Whenever you can’t answer, forward your calls to someone who can. 

Monthly Charge: 75¢

Forward No Answer, entering the new “forward to” number.

Note: Dial the number exactly as if you are calling directly. For a local number, dial the 7-digit phone number. For a long distance number, dial “1” plus the area code. If you have speed calling, you may dial one of your codes instead.

Selective Call Forwarding


Decide which callers should follow you to another number. 

Monthly Charge: $2.00

How it works: You can program your phone to forward only those calls from a special list of numbers to another number – such as your car phone. When your service is turned “on,” calls from numbers in your forward list will be re-routed to your “forward-to” number. All others will ring at your phone as usual.

How to use: Lift the handset and listen for the dial tone. Press *63. (On a rotary phone dial 1163.) Listen for an announcement telling you whether the feature is currently stored in your forward list. Follow the voice instructions and dial 3 to turn the feature ON (if it is currently off), or turn the feature OFF (if it is currently on).

To add the last caller to your forward list: Press #01#. (On a rotary phone, dial 1201.)

To enter your “forward-to” number: The first time you turn on the service, you’ll be asked to enter the number you’d like your special calls forwarded to. From then on, the system will simply remind you of the current “forward-to” number. If the current number is correct, dial 1. If you wish to change the current “forward-to” number, dial 0 and then follow the voice instructions.

To hear the phone numbers on your list: Dial 1. After the list is read, voice instructions will follow.

To add a number to your list: Press #. (On a rotary phone, dial 12.) Follow the voice instructions you’ll hear. You can store up to 31 phone numbers on your forward list.

To remove a number from your list: Press *. (On a rotary phone, dial 11.) Follow the voice instructions to remove any or all of those numbers from your forward list.

To hear instructions again: Dial 0.

Notes: 

  • You may press 1, 0, #, or * at any time rather than waiting for the voice instructions. The list you create here is separate from any other lists you may be using for Distinctive Ringing/Call Waiting, Selective Call Acceptance, Selective Call Rejection, and similar services.
  • This service can work with Call Forward (all calls). Numbers on your preferred list will follow you to your Selective Call Forward number. All other calls will be routed to your regular Call Forward number.

Call Waiting

You’ll know when another caller is trying to reach you. 

Monthly Charge: 75¢

How it works: You can use your telephone without missing other calls. A special tone alerts you to a waiting call; the person calling hears normal ringing.

To answer a waiting call: When you’re on the phone, a special tone tells you a second call is waiting. Simply press and quickly release the “switchhook” on your telephone. Your first caller is automatically placed on hold while you’re connected with the second caller.

If you choose not to answer the incoming call: You’ll hear a special tone to remind you of the waiting call.

To alternate between callers: Simply press and quickly release the “switchhook.” While you talk with one caller, the other will automatically be placed on hold. Each conversation remains private.

To end either call: Hang up and your phone will then ring. When you answer, you’ll be connected with the remaining caller.

Distinctive Ringing/Call Waiting

How to use: Lift the handset and listen for the dial tone. Press *61. (On a rotary phone, dial 1161.) Listen for an announcement telling you whether the feature is currently on or off. The recorded voice will then tell you how many (if any) numbers are currently stored in your list. Follow the voice instructions and dial 3 to turn the feature ON (if it is currently off), or turn the feature OFF (if it is currently on).

To add the last caller to your list: Press #01#. (On a rotary phone, dial 1201.)
