Computer dial up question

Ok..I'm on dialup, and that takes up my phone line. My buddy has a newer computer with XP and its got a program that pops up a window to let him know he has an incoming call and he can disconnect and take the call if he wants.


I have windows 98. Is there any programs or device out there so that I could get that on my computer whether it be internal or external?


I'm online all the time and never get calls and I get people pissed at me because of it...LOL



Thanks everyone.

the only thing i have heard of is for AOL. 9.0. Some phone companies give you special software with the purchase of their service, and i tihnk that software contains something like that. I suggest just get cable heheh :p

try callwave.com, we had that for awhile. aol 9.0 has their own messaging features when you are online. we use that now. but i think the callwave was like a dollar a month or something. with callwave, i don't know if you can disconnect to answer the phone. it should be callwave.com, if not just do a search, you should be able to find it. lata

At home probably
Denise has AOL, but doesn't pay for it cuz her parents had it free for a while (came with a new computer they bought or something).

There are a few $10 services, so she will probably go with that soon.

we have dsl at work, and it is good, but not as good as my cable at home!!!!
