Ident-a-Call

What Does it Do?

Ident-a-Call allows you to have up to three additional phone numbers while retaining only one physical line. Calls to the additional numbers use the existing phone line, but have a distinctive ring tone for each number. Outgoing calls are made only from the primary number. The Ident-a-Call feature can be used:

  • In a household where parents may give additional numbers with distinctive ring tones to their teenage children so that incoming calls for the children can be ignored by the adults.
  • A hotline service, where high-priority callers are given the additional number, enabling you to filter important calls.
  • For home-workers, where a single phone line may be used for both business and personal calls. Business calls outside working hours could be forwarded to voice mail.
  • For fax machines.
