Unfortunately, it failed at this job and even created other problems. Each time someone on the "blocked" list called the phone would ring for a fraction of a second. Doesn't sound bad, but it was. At times it was more jarring than having the phone ring normally. Also, at least once, one of the blocked callers got through. Not sure why that happened.
In order for this product to attempt to control who gets through and who doesn't it has to be the first thing connected to your primary phone jack. While that's logical, it also creates a problem that will be a negative for anyone with more than one phone. This caller ID blocked the ID information from being forwarded to my two phones. So the phone rings and the only way you'll know who's calling is to get up and look at the base unit that could be in another room or even on the other side of the house. Very inconvenient.
I used this caller ID for about a week and I knew it wasn't going to work. It barely did what it was supposed to and was more of a hassle than anything else. I contacted Smarthome, the Amazon distributor, and they were very courteous and took the item back and paid for the shipping back to them. I'd probably purchase from them again given how they handled the situation. But as for this product, I really can't think of anyone who would find it useful given its limitations.
In order to prevent your other extensions from ringing, some people turn off these ringers. That's not very useful in a larger home. I have voice over internet cable and so I simply installed the controller immediately after my modem which suppresses the ringing for rejected callers to all the phones in my house. It might be more difficult to find the entrance point for landline phone service. One limitation that I have not read before was the inability of the controller to suppress messages on a phone company or ISP-based message answering service.Read more ›
"They" finally found my second phone number is the reason I bought the second one.
Also has a Ring controller that regulates when someone is permitted to make your phone ring.
I bought this for the Ring Controller aspect of this device.
I get tired of signing up to be on the Do Not Call (DNC) lists. Invariably some charity or other organization that exempt from the DNC lists will get your number and keep calling you. Why is it they always call when you just sit down for dinner or when you just started watching a really good movie?
This is my last line of defense at preventing my phone from ringing by unwanted callers and works quite well once you get used to it.
On the plus side, it has 3 classifications for numbers, A, B and R. Any number programed into R is intended never to allow your phone to Ring (which can be overridden if you like - Up to 70 numbers). A & B are for priority callers (up to 100 numbers each)
To get the most out of this device, all the numbers you would like to permit or restrict will need to be added to one of the three lists.
Now the caveats.
Keying in a number by hand is not what you call relaxing. Button response is sluggish and can be prone to errors when done by hand.
By far the easiest way to program is to add numbers directly from the caller ID display directly, but the caveat is that the person you want to block will have needed to have already called you after you have set this up.Read more ›

only captured caller id for a small percentage of calls and then stopped working all together after about two year. Threw it out and ordered competitors product.Published 10 months ago by David
