  2. If you’ve already hung up, pick up the handset and listen for a normal dial tone.
  3. Press*66. On a rotary phone, dial 1166.
  4. If the line is still busy, hang up. Your phone will check the number for up to 30 minutes.
  5. A special callback ring alerts you if the line be- comes free (some phones ring normally).
  6. Pick up the handset to automatically place the call.
    To cancel:
  7. Depress the “switchhook’ and release. Listen for a special dial tone.
