Caller ID decoder

This is a well-documented solution for storing unlimited caller ID phone numbers. The site contains schematics and the software needed to decode and store the data.

Some time ago, I subscribed to the Caller Id service to know who is calling me without being required to pick-up the phone. Unfortunately, my basic caller id display could not memorize enough numbers, and I had to write them manually in a computer to keep them. That’s why I decided to find a way to log the calling numbers directly to my computer.

  1. Easier way:

    1) Get a USB modem that supports caller ID.

    2) Attach modem to a Unix/BSD/Linux system.

    3) Run the “cu” program. (Eg. cu -l /dev/cu.usbmodem)

    4) Activate the caller ID with “AT+VCID=1” or similar.

    5) Write a program to substitute for “cu” for custom actions.

  2. Why couldn’t you plug the phone line into the modem on the computer and out of the modem into the computer, and have software handle decoding it?
