Caller ID

The Caller ID feature lets you use the Caller
ID subscriber service offered by many local
telephone companies. Call your telephone
company for details. This service shows the
telephone number, or name if it is available,
of your caller as the line rings.
You can use a number in the Caller ID History
to make a phone call (MFC-665CW and
MFC-845CW only), send a fax, add it to
Speed-Dial, or delete it from the history. (See
Caller ID history on page 65.)
After a few rings, the LCD shows the
telephone number of your caller (and name, if
available). Once you answer a call, the Caller
ID information disappears from the LCD, but
the call information stays stored in the Caller
ID memory.
You can see the first 15 characters of the
number (or name).
The Out of Area message means the
call originated outside your Caller ID
service area.
The Private Call message means the
caller has intentionally blocked
transmission of information.
You can print a list of the Caller ID information
received by your machine. (See Printing
Caller ID List on page 57.)
• This feature may not be available in
certain areas of the USA and Canada.
• Caller ID service varies with different
carriers. Call your local telephone
company to find out about the kind of
service available in your area.
Setting up your area code (USA only)
Your machine will automatically dial "1" plus
the area code for any number that does not
originate in your area code. The machine can
identify local calls from your area code by
entering your area code in the Area Code
setting. With this setting, calls returned from
the caller ID history to your area code will be
dialed using only 7-digits. If you must dial the
area code to call within your area code, do not
enter this setting. If your dialing plan does not
follow the standard 1 + area code + 7-digit
number dialing system for calling outside
your area code, you may experience
problems returning calls automatically from
the caller ID history. If this is not the
procedure followed by your dialing plan, you
will not be able to return calls automatically.

or print this list. When the thirty-first call
comes in to the machine, it replaces
information about the first call.
