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 :-)
