"Not in time, dial *69"
The following is from Verizon's
list of services for your home
You're at your front door, fumbling for your keys when you hear the phone ringing. You rush inside but by the time you reach the phone it has stopped ringing. Use *69 to get that call back.
- *69 gives you the number, date and time of your last incoming call and the option to dial that party back.
- *69 can also be helpful if you have Call Waiting and hear a second call but don't want to interrupt your conversation to see who it is. *69 can give you the number of the second caller after you end your first call.
- In some areas *69 will return the call rather than giving you the option to dial the party back.
How to use *69
Simply dial *69 from any telephone in your home to find out the number, date, and time of the last incoming call.
