Caller ID (CID)
IMPORTANT: In order to use this unit's Caller ID features,
you must subscribe to either the standard Name/Number
Caller ID Service or Call Waiting Caller ID Service. To
know who is calling while you are on the phone, you must
subscribe to Call Waiting Caller ID Service.
This unit receives and displays information transmitted by your local phone
company. This information can include the phone number, date, and time; or
the name, phone number, date, and time.

Caller status; NEW or REPT
Call Waiting Caller ID
Provided you subscribe to Call Waiting Caller ID service from your phone
company; if you receive an incoming call and you are already on the phone,
a beep indicates the presence of a Call Waiting call on the line. Only the
handset that is in use at the time of the call will display and store the Call
Waiting Caller ID information.
• When you hear the call waiting beep in the handset receiver, press the
flash/answerer/call waiting button to put the current call on hold and
answer the incoming call. Press flash/answerer/call waiting again to return

Receiving CID Records
When you receive a call, the Caller ID information is transmitted between the
first and second ring. The Caller ID information appears on the display while
the phone rings, giving you a chance to monitor the information and decide
whether or not to answer the call.
Storing CID Records (In CID Memory)
If you are not at home or cannot answer, your telephone's Caller ID memory
stores the data for the 40 most recent calls you received so you can see who
called while you were unavailable. When the 41st call is received, the oldest
Caller ID record (1st call) is automatically deleted.
You may review the stored information at any time. Calls received since your
last review show as NEw in the display. Calls that have not been previously
reviewed but were received from the same number more than once show as
REPT in the display.
Reviewing CID Records
As calls are received and stored, the display is updated to let you know how
many calls have been received. To scroll CID records:
1. Make sure the phone is OFF (not in talk mode).
2. Press the CALLER ID-VOLUME (6) button to review the newest CID record.
3. Press the CALLER ID-VOLUME (5) button to review the oldest CID record
first.
Dialing a CID Number
1. Make sure the phone is OFF (not in TALK mode).
2. Use the CALLER ID-VOLUME (5or6) button to display the desired record.
3. Press the TALK/CALL BACK or SPEAKER button. The number dials
automatically.
NOTE: Depending on (a) how the incoming caller's phone
number is formatted when it is received, and (b) whether or
not you previously pre-programmed your local area code
into the set up menu, you may need to adjust the format of
the incoming caller's stored phone number before making
the call, press the format/trans button to adjust the
number, and try again
