Modern modems decode caller id directly. The tones occur between the
first and second ring so no retrain is necessary.

The caller id decoder kits available consist of a Motorola MC145447P
caller id decoder chip and a MAX232 RS-232 driver. The 145447 could
be hooked to a pic software or hardware UART (there I mentioned PICs :-)

Are the caller id tones always transmitted or do the local phone companies
block that info unless you buy there service?  Are you only renting the box
when you subscribe to their service?

In Mexico the phone company blocks the signal, only subscribers get them.
And the decoders are bought anywhere you want (even Radio Shack). I guess
it's the same everywhere caller ID is offered since in digital phone
centrals it is easy to route diferent services.

I'm not sure if the phone companies completely suppress the CID string or
simply suppress the data within the string (I'm inclined to believe the former)
but unless you subscribe to the service, you will get nothing useful.

Also, the phone companies supply the service only; you must obtain your own
decoder box (of course, you may be able to do that through your local telco).

Mark, I see you are in NYNEX territory, too.  If you are considering subscribing
to CID from them, you may want to be aware that there seems to be an
inordinately
high percentage of "Not Available" calls in (at least) my area (Long Island).  I
would say that at least 75% of the calls we get have no CID data available.  Of
course, this is NOT the fault of NYNEX; it just makes the service somewhat less
useful than I had originally thought.

Also, for any other deaf PICLIST subscribers out there in NYNEX land, be aware
that all calls from the NY Relay Center will appear on your CID boxes as "NOT
AVAILABLE"; i.e. NYRC apparently does NOT re-transmit the CID info of the
callers
TO the relay center, so you will not get the CID info for those callers.

       Around here, Southwestern Bell sends absolutely nothing but 90 volts at
20
20 HZ unless you pay for the service which is around $7.00 on top of the
usual bill.
