  3. Features
    1. Change Number Intercept

      2. Customers must request C&W to provide Change Number Intercept. This service is not provided automatically when a telephone number is changed at customer’s request.
      3. Call charges do not apply to the calling party when calling the old telephone number.
    2. Hot Line
      1. Hot Line allows a Customer to set-up his/her telephone line to bypass the dialing of Telephone Numbers. Instead, when the Customer lifts the Handset a pre-programmed Telephone Number is automatically dialed.
      2. This feature has two options. The immediate option automatically dials the programmed Telephone Number when the Handset is lifted. The delay option provides a few seconds pause before dialing the programmed Telephone Number so that the Customer can dial a different Telephone Number if he/she wishes to.
    3. Abbreviated Calling
      1. Abbreviated Calling allows the Customer to dial up to 10 pre- programmed Telephone Numbers by abbreviated 2-digit codes, selected by the customer.
      2. Normal Call charges apply, for each Call, according to the rates, terms and conditions of the particular Call (Local, Mobile, IDD, etc.).

      2. Sequential Hunting is provided to customers who require more than one direct exchange line on the same telephone number. It affords the calling party a better opportunity of reaching the intended party, by searching for the next available free line
      3. Normal Call charges apply to the calling party depending on the particular call (mobile, local fixed line, IDD, etc)
    5. Inward Call Barring

      3. Customer is charged a $10.00 fee upon deactivation of the feature.
    6. Malicious Call Tracing
      1. Upon written request by the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, C&W can activate malicious call tracing on a customer’s telephone number. Customers cannot request this service directly from C&W.

      3. The customer is not charged for this service.
    7. Do Not Disturb

DID is used in conjunction with a PBX and gives each extension its own full virtual telephone number without requiring an exchange line for each number.
