Caller ID
Caller ID log
How caller ID log works
The telephone stores caller ID information about the last 50 incoming calls
in the telephone base. Each entry may have up to 24 digits for the telephone
number and 15 characters for the name. Entries are stored in reverse
chronological order. The telephone deletes the oldest entry when the log is
full to make room for new calls. This information is common to all handsets,
so changes made to any handset are reflected in all other handsets. If you
answer a call before the information appears on the screen, it does not show
in the caller ID log.
NOTE: The caller ID information might not be available for every incoming call. The callers
might intentionally block their names and/or telephone numbers (see Reasons for missing
caller ID information on page 47).
Memory match
If the incoming telephone number matches the last seven
digits of a telephone number in your directory, the name
that appears on the screen matches the corresponding
name in your directory.
For example, if Christine Smith calls, her name appears as
Chris if this is what you entered into your directory.
NOTE: The number shown by your caller ID is in the format sent by the telephone service
provider. The telephone service provider usually delivers 10-digit telephone numbers (area
code plus telephone number). If the telephone number of the caller does not match a
number in your directory, the name appears as it is delivered by the telephone service
provider. For example, if the telephone service provider includes the area code but the
number in your directory does not, the name appears as delivered by the telephone
service provider.
