I purchased this product for one primary reason - to block specific callers from ringing my phone. While this caller ID does have other fuctions, this was, for me, the only reason I purchased it.

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.

First of all, buyers should be aware that there is a version 2 that became available early Jan 2010. The major upgrades over the original model include compatability with internet-based (VoIP) phones, an increase in the "reject" list from 20 to 70, and the ability to reject an entire area code (like 888) using wildcards. Although the controller has 3 lists: list "A" (always allow), list "B" (allow certain times of day) and list "R" (reject these), I only bought the controller to reject frequent annoyance callers (list "R"). The controller simply supresses the ring on numbers entered into this "R" list. Any devices installed between the "wall" and the controller - like an answering machine - will operate as before. Any devices installed "after" the controller - like your phone - will not receive the ring tone or caller ID. The caller ID will only be recorded on the controller itself. I personally do not want to hear my answering machine's greeting when receiving "rejected " calls. Therefore, I place both my phone and answering machine after the product. In this configuration, the caller will hear the phone ring until they themselves hang up. I don't hear anything.
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.

I use this unit as a call blocker. As such, it works well. It's connected between the wall jack and the base station on a 4-phone wireless system. I block all toll free numbers, using wild cards for the last 7 digits. It can also selectively block individual numbers. It is compatible with Vonage, which requires the country code to be entered on the unit. The phone does not ring and the answering machine does not pick up when a blocked number is calling. The ID is displayed on the unit for all calls. My only complaint is that the ID is not passed on to any of my phones, even non-blocked calls. Maybe this is not technically feasible. A workaround might be to plug your TV into a wall jack if it has caller ID display capabilities. The documentation is poorly organized but all the information is there. Just read it carefully.

Not your ordinary Caller ID display. This is my second purchase of this device. I've had the first one for more than 12 months and that one is still in service.

"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.
