You can access special features on your Fusion phone line by pressing the star key (*), followed by a number code. Here are some examples of what those codes can do:

  • *69: Last-call return. This feature will immediately dial back the last inbound caller. This feature only works if the last inbound caller has visible Caller-ID information.
  • *82: Unblock Caller-ID will unblock outbound Caller-ID on a per call basis if your outbound Caller-ID is blocked by default. Please note that there will not be a dial tone after dialing *82; simply continue dialing. If you would like your outbound Caller-ID to be blocked by default please contact us.

3 Way Calling

Steps to create a 3-way call:

  • Connect with the first party.
  • Press “Flash” (or “Link”, or briefly hold down the on-hook switch.)
  • Wait for dial tone.
  • Dial the second number.
  • When the second party answers, flash again to reconnect the first party.


Call Waiting

When you are on the phone and an outside call comes in, you will hear a beep on your phone indicating an incoming call. Press the “Flash” button on your phone to answer the new caller while the original call remains on-hold. Press Flash again to go back to the original caller. If your telephone does not have a Flash button, you can briefly hold down the on-hook switch.

  • If you would rather NOT have call waiting on your line, you can disable it from the web interface.




Unwanted Call Blocking

We block incoming calls from certain automated calling machines used by telemarketers. These are typically illegal operations that do not honor the national Do Not Call directory listings.

  • If you would rather NOT have call blocking on your line, you can disable from the web interface.
