About caller ID
This product supports caller ID services provided by most telephone service
providers. Depending on your service subscription, you may see the caller’s
number, or the caller’s name and number that are sent by the telephone
service provider after the first or second ring. Caller ID allows you to see the
name, number, date and time of calls.
Information about caller ID with call waiting
Caller ID with call waiting lets you see the name and telephone number of the
caller before answering the telephone, even while on another call.
It may be necessary to change your telephone service to use this feature.
Contact your telephone service provider if:
You have both caller ID and call waiting, but as separate services (you may
need to combine these services).
You have only caller ID service, or only call waiting service.
You do not subscribe to caller ID or call waiting services.
There are fees associated with caller ID services. In addition, services may
not be available in all areas.
This product can provide information only if both you and the caller are in
areas offering caller ID service and if both telephone service providers use
compatible equipment. The time and date are sent by the telephone service
provider along with the call information.
Caller ID information may not be available for every incoming call. Callers
may intentionally block their names and/or telephone numbers. To view call
log entries with numbers between 16 and 24 digits, you must save the entry
to the directory (see page 59).
You can use this product with regular caller ID service, or you can use this
product’s other features without subscribing to either caller ID or combined
caller ID with call waiting service.
