Caller ID with Name

  • When Your Phone Rings, you may see one of the following four messages on your display unit:

1.        The telephone number and name - Most display devices also show the time and date.  (Name delivery is not available in certain areas.)

2.        "Out of Area" - This call is from an area that does not have Caller ID technology. Or the call is being switched through machinery not equipped with Caller ID technology.

3.        "Private", "Blocked" or "Anonymous" - The caller is blocking Caller ID.

4.        "E" or "Error" - The display unit or telephone cannot identify the caller's phone number. If you get this message quite often, contact customer service.

  • Note: The Caller ID unit must be purchased separately. Display message may vary depending on the display unit's manufacturer.
  • To Block Your Number From Appearing On Other Caller ID Units (free of charge):

1.        Before placing your call, pick up the telephone and wait for the dial tone.

2.        Push *67. (Dial 1167 on a rotary phone.)

3.        A series of tones, followed by a dial tone, lets you know that your blocking is activated.

4.        Dial the desired telephone number.

  • Important Features

1.        Most display units store several calls for you to check. The number of calls depends on which unit you purchase.

2.        Caller ID only displays numbers when both parties' service areas have advanced technologies that allow telephone numbers to be seen. Display does not appear on some cellular, calling card or operator-assisted calls outside your service area, your long-distance carrier must also be equipped with this technology.
