    Is there a free service where I can simply hear the phone ring when
    receiving an incoming call when I am online. I don't want any kind of
    rollover or answering machine.

    Callwave seems to have a service like this, but I was unable to figure out
    how to access it.

    My old ISP cut off the modem and rang through whenever there was an incoming
    call. I spose that's too much to ask of ISP's nowadays.
    (Now that I think about it, they also were the phone company.)

    Subscribe to caller waiting, and when it sends the second caller signal,
    your modem will cut you off.

    If you are using WinXP, you can configure your modem with 'Modem on Hold',
    which will let you have your Internet Connection and allow you to receive a
    short phone call without disconnecting you from the internet.
    Hope this helps.

    Mary, I believe that only works if you have a V.92 modem. All mine are older
    than that ;o) (But it would have made a good excuse for an upgrade...except
    I'm on cable now...) So the OP needs to check out his modem's hardware

    Well, they didn't mention what they have, so I had to put in my 2 cents-FWIW
