Deluxe Caller ID

Deluxe Caller ID displays both the name and phone number of the person calling before you answer the telephone. Deluxe Caller ID also stores the name and phone number, as well as the date and time, of each incoming call so you can review this log later. Deluxe Caller ID requires the purchase of compatible equipment, which is available through many retailers.


How To Use Deluxe Caller ID:

  1. When you receive a call, wait until the telephone completes the first ring. The call is identified on your Deluxe Caller ID equipment between the first and second rings.


Notes:

  1. Since Deluxe Caller ID works automatically after you have subscribed to it, you do not need to press any codes to activate or deactivate the service.
  2. Follow the instructions provided by the equipment manufacturer for setting up and using your display unit or telephone.
  3. The number of calls stored in an Deluxe Caller ID log will depend on the equipment you obtain.

Anonymous Call Rejection

Anonymous Call Rejection is a feature that comes with Deluxe Caller ID. Anonymous Call Rejection lets you reject a call from a caller who blocks his/her name and phone number from being displayed.
