Caller ID with Ring Controller allows you to choose when your phone rings so you can block unwanted phone calls. Assign callers to three lists: ring any time (friends and family), block calls during certain hours (business and acquaintances) and always block calls (debt collectors, telemarketers, political campaigns, hang-ups, donation solicitors, bill collectors, harassing calls, creditors, wrong numbers or anybody else you donít want to talk to). Requires caller ID service from your local phone company.
