About Caller Identification

This product is designed to store and display information about incoming telephone calls. It must be used with Caller Identification service provided by your local telephone company; there is a fee for this service, and it may not be available in all areas. This product can provide information only if both you and the caller are in areas offering Caller Identification service, and if both telephone companies use compatible equipment.

When you use this product with Caller ID service, you can see who’s calling before you answer the phone. And if you subscribe to Call Waiting with Caller Identification, you can see who’s trying to reach you even when you’re on another call. Your telephone company must provide Caller ID with Call Waiting (Type II service) for this feature to work. (If you subscribe to these two features separately, you may not receive Caller ID with Call Waiting. Check with your local phone company.) The unit keeps a record of the names and numbers of the last 50 calls, whether

you answer the phone or not.

When the first call is received, the unit sets the current time and date automatically (you cannot set them), and resets them each time a new call comes in. (The time and date line remain blank until the first call comes in.) The unit automatically adjusts for daylight savings time. When not in use, the unit displays the current date/time, number of new calls received since the last review of memory, and number of reviewed calls in call history.

For each call that comes in, the screen displays the following information between the first and second rings:

Your caller’s name (15 letters are sent by your telephone company);

The caller’s area code and telephone number (the area code is not displayed if it is programmed as the Home Area Code);

The time and date of the call; and

The position of the call in memory.

If you answer a call before the information appears on the screen, it will not be in the call history.

NOTE: If the caller’s number is flashing on the screen, there is an error in the transmission.



Call Waiting

Press Con the unit when you receive a call waiting signal. Using this button puts your current call on “hold,” connects you to the new call, and displays the name/number of the call waiting call on the bottom two lines.

Press Cagain to return to the first call. UseCinstead of using the switchhook or Flash button on your phone.

Message Waiting & NEW CALL Light

This light stays on when you have received call information but have not yet reviewed it. If you subscribe to a voice mail service, this light flashes if you have unretrieved messages waiting.

Call History

This product assigns each incoming call a number from 1 to 50. The most recent call will have the highest number (for example, if 10 calls have been received, call number 10 is the most recent, and call number 1 is the oldest). When the memory is full (50 calls), the oldest call information is deleted to make room for new incoming call information.

Reviewing Call History

The screen displays the call information for about 30 seconds after it has been received.

1To review earlier calls, press -.

2To advance through call history from an earlier call, press +. The screen displaysEND OF LIST to indicate you have reviewed all the calls in the call history. When you reach the end of the call history, it begins again.

Removing Call Records from History

When the unit is idle, press rto erase a displayed call record. The screen displaysCall Removed. To remove all calls from call history, pressrwhen no call is displayed. The screen displaysREMOVE All?. Pressragain.

NOTE: Once a call is removed from call history, it cannot be retrieved.



Display Dial

As you review calls in history, you can dial a displayed phone number. (This feature works only with touch tone service on a phone connected to the unit.) Lift the handset of the phone (the screen displays the first number in the call history), then press and release Dto call that number, or press+or-toscroll to another number in the call history.

After you press D, the screen shows the number being called.

If the screen displays Call ID Error, an error is preventing use of the Display Dial feature.

If a call is coming from your Home Area Code (the one you programmed during installation), then the screen will display only the seven digits of the number you’re calling (without an area code). When you use Display Dial, the unit will dial the seven displayed digits.

You can also program up to four other Local Area Codes. These must be area codes that do not require dialing a“1” before them. After programming, if you receive a call from one of these area codes, the screen displays the 10 digits (three digits of area code plus seven digits of phone number). When you use

Display Dial, the unit dials 10 digits, without inserting a“1” before the area code.

If you receive a call from an area code not programmed in the unit, you will see 10 digits on the screen (the area code and the phone number). The unit will automatically dial “1” before the number when you use Display Dial.
