Advantages: you dont miss phone calls.
Disadvantages: Horrible colour.
If like Me You are fed up with missing those important phone calls,because You are on the internet,then this may be of interest to you.
It is a new invention called "internet Alert 510".
How this box works....
You have a box that you fit to your computer via the modem.
A flashing and bleeping display appears on the box itself,alerting you that somebody is trying to reach you on the phone.
It then gives you the option of whether you wish to take the call,or carry on surfing.
You have fifteen seconds to decide to take the call,after that the call is cut off.
The unit itself cost £29.95 and is the easiest piece of equipment that I have ever had to install on my computer.
The "internet Alerter" is compatible with all computer modems which means whether you have a PC,MAC,a WEB TV UNIT,DREAMCAST orPS2 it will work on all of them.
You will need to have a call waiting service through your phone provider,with BT it will cost You £1.33 a month for this .It will not operate without it.
I had previously bought a mobile phone,to get around this problem but found that people were reluctant to ring a mobile due to the high cost of the calls.
All I used to hear from My family was "there is no point trying to ring you as all we ever get is the engaged tone".
It got to the point where I darent go on the internet during the day,now I dont have to worry about missing my phone calls.
The only thing I dont like about this box is the horrid colour Orange not My favourite colour at all.
