I only wish caller ID came with a ringer mute function for annonymous or unavailable calls
telephone call unavailable
I get frequent annoyance calls and my answering machine picks up and the caller never leaves any messages, but caller ID indicates that the caller is unknown or unavailable. That said, I would like to understand, just why, exactly, that such calls even need to ring the phone in the first place. If in fact all calls that are not registering with caller Identity, which would normally display the telephone number and name of person or business from which that call originated from, should not even ring.
Calls that occur with regular frequency are likely solicitation calls or political ones. The phone will ring regardless. If I could get the telephone manufacturers or telephone company to try and create a system that would mute the ringer so it would not make any sound each time an mystery call comes in it would be invaluable in my opinion.
Based on this subject, I had to Google it to see what might actually be in the works for such a thing. Well it shows a function available for smart phone users. The annoying calls do not ring but the ones you want, from people you know, will ring. Not bad, but I guess this technology is unavailable for the ancient type of phone soon to become extinct, that is, the landline telephone.
