Caller ID Feature Package With or Without Optional Call Waiting
The Caller ID Feature Package contains all the features available in the Standard Feature Package, and also provides Incoming Caller ID capability, if you have a telephone with a screen that is capable of displaying Caller ID. Once you purchase the Caller ID package:
- If an on-campus caller dials your number using just your extension (i.e., the last 4 digits), your display will show the callerís extension.
- If an off-campus caller has not blocked the display of information, your screen will show the callerís seven or ten-digit telephone number. If the caller is capable of sending the information, and your display screen is capable of displaying it, you may also see the callerís name.
