Calls Log (Caller ID - Call Waiting)

Caller ID - Call Waiting ID

Your ev 2653 is capable of displaying the name and/or number of the party calling before you answer the phone (Caller ID). If the number of the Caller ID is contained by the phonebook, the name contained in the received CID will be replaced by the name in the phonebook. It is also capable of displaying Caller ID information in conjunction with a Call Waiting alert signal (Call Waiting Caller ID). With Call Waiting Caller ID, the Caller ID data is displayed so you can decide whether to answer the incoming call, or continue with your current conversation. Yourev 2653 can hold up to 50 CID entries.

Only one Handset may access CID Log at a time. If a second Handset attempts to access the CID Log, they will receive the message NOT AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME.

NOTESABOUT CALLER ID & CALL WAITING CALLER ID

These are subscription services, provided by most regional telephone service providers. You must subscribe to these services to get the benefits of these features. If you do not subscribe to Caller ID services, you can still use your ev 2653 and the other features it offers.

Due to regional incompatibilities, Caller ID information may not be available for every call you receive. In addition, the calling party may intentionally block their name and/or phone number from being sent.

As new Caller ID/Call Waiting ID records

 

are received, your Handsets' displays will

 

 

alert you to the new Caller ID records, for
