Caller ID
Caller ID allows for the automatic delivery of a calling party's telephone number to the called customers, which gives the called customer an opportunity to decide whether to answer the call immediately or not. The number is displayed on customer provided equipment. This can also include the display of calling party's name as well.

Northwest Communications Voice Mail

Northwest Voice Mail
Always get your messages.

Whether you're a busy parent, a businessperson or you share an apartment with roommates, you'll always get your messages with Voice Mail. When you're away, on the line, sending a fax or just busy - get Voice Mail and stay in touch without having to stay by the phone.

Features & Advantages

  • Voice Mail can answer the phone with your own personally-recorded greeting when your line is busy as well as when there is no answer, even when the power is out.
  • Voice Mail can handle multiple calls at once, plus our Voice Mail keeps working during a power outage…your incoming and stored messages won’t be lost!
  • If you use our Call Waiting feature, Voice Mail is an excellent complement – it takes a message when you don’t want to take a Call Waiting call.
  • You can easily access your messages, even when you’re away from home.
