Caller ID giving weird responses
Posted on 1998-07-27
I purchased a AOpen K56 Flex modem a few months ago, and just became interested in the Caller ID function. I'm using QuickLink Message Center III. The problem is that the number doesn't show up. Here is the response when I use terminal:
AT &F E0 V1 &D2 &C1 S95=47 W2 S0=0 #CID=1
DATE = 0701
TIME = 1415
MESG = 030738333631383137
As you can see, the NMBR = line is missing. The MESG = line is not the phone number (if you remove the first four numbers and every odd number thereafter you do get the correct number). Is something wrong with my init string? Could the way I'm connected to my phone jack have an impact on this (via extension cord and a double jack thingy)? Could it be because I'm in Canada? (PS I am subscribed to Caller ID and it works with the boxes. The modem is Caller ID as well).
