Mac Caller ID

Hello,

I have used a Big Island YoYo for several years, and liked it. However, upon upgrading to a Macintosh G4 and OS9, the YoYo software does not work. And the YoYo hardware will not work without a USB to ADB adapter. Further more Big Island has gone out of business, or at least no longer supports the YoYo.

Soooo. I am looking for the solution that will display caller ID information on my monitor, log incoming and outgoing calls, and allow me to attach my own names to incoming phone numbers.

I have tried Mac Caller ID and Phone Watcher. Neither are as elegant a solution as YoYo was. Mac Caller ID does not log outgoing calls. Phone Watcher says it will log outgoing calls if I have a Rochelle device.

I have emailed Rochelle Communications. They did not seem interested in working with a Macintosh customer.

Thanks,

Brian Ladd

Try going here :

http://guide.apple.com/uscategories/networking.html

And click on "Telephony", and you'll get a big list of telephone/fax software titles.  Maybe one of them is what you are looking for.  Good luck! =)

I really appreciate the responses.

However, for "mudface" I have tried http://guide.apple.com/uscategories/networking.html. They still list Big Island as a source.

For "weed" I appreciate the straight forward answer, but that does not solve my problem.

Thanks,

Brian Ladd
