The Repeat Dialing feature allows your phone to keep trying a busy number for up to 30 minutes. When the called party’s line clears, Repeat Dialing signals you with a special ring and automatically places the call when you pick up the phone.

To use Repeat Dialing:

  1. When you hear a busy signal, press and release the receiver button (or FLASH button if your phone is so equipped). Listen for a special tone.

  2. From a touch-tone phone, dial *66 (On a rotary phone, dial 1166). If the line is still busy, hang up. Your phone will check the number for up to 30 minutes.

  3. A special callback ring alerts you if the line becomes free (Some phones ring normally). Lift the handset to automatically place the call.

To cancel your Repeat Dialing request:

  1. Press and release the receiver. Listen for a special dial tone. If you’ve already hung up, lift the handset and listen for a normal dial tone.

  2. Press *86 (On a rotary phone, dial 1186). Listen for the confirmation tone or announcement. Hang up.
