Dial Your Phone With NewDex

Would you like to have your computer dial your phone numbers? Did you know NewDex could do this for you? If you need to dial a lot of numbers and have a modem in your computer, connect it to your phone line and you're all set to let your computer do the work for you. All you need to do is press talk on your phone, or pick up the receiver when the person you're dialing answers! Just follow these easy instructions:

  1. Flip to the card containing the phone number you want to call.
  2. Click the dial button. A dialog box appears asking you are sure you want to dial this number.
  3. If the number is incorrect, you can click in the field and edit it now.
  4. Click Dial to place your call. If your modem has a built-in speaker, you hear the dial tone, the number being dialed and the ringing tone (or a busy signal).
  5. As soon as the modem finishes dialing the number, pick up the handset of your phone and click the Talk button. Clicking Talk transfers the call from your modem to your telephone. Until you click Talk, the person who answers the phone cannot hear you speaking.
For more information on this and how NewDex can display your ten most frequently dialed numbers and your ten most recently called people, check out the NewDex chapter in your manual.
