Definition Edit

Caller ID (also known also as Caller Identification (CID) or more properly Calling Number Identification (CNID), is a telephone service, available on POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) lines, that transmits a caller's telephone number to the called party's telephone equipment during the ringing signal, or when the call is being set up but before the call is answered.

Overview Edit

Where available, caller ID can also provide a name associated with the calling telephone number, for a higher fee. The information made available to the called party may be made visible on a telephone's own display or on a separate attached device.
