Jumbo Wireless Caller ID Display

Bring your caller ID display along from room to room

Jumbo display shows caller's name and number plus date and time, Stores up to 60 names and numbers

Most homes have multiple phones, but adding a caller ID display in every room can get costly. Now you can see who's calling from any room in the house using a single caller ID display. How? By bringing it with you! The Jumbo Wireless Caller ID Display doesn't need to be attached to a phone cord to receive callers' information, so you can bring it with you from room to room. Caller ID is a service your phone company will provide for a fee. The base unit is powered by an AC adapter, but it is recommended that four AAA batteries be installed for memory backup (batteries sold separately). Specifications

The large, backlit, easy-to-read display shows the name and telephone number of each caller as well as the date and time the call is received. The base unit transmits the information to the receiver wherever you are in the house, and you'll be able to view three lines of 14 characters and 13 digits as well as date and time information.

The Jumbo Wireless Caller ID Display stores up to 60 names and numbers in its memory, and you can even save 35 directory entries in a phone book for future reference. Up to 12 caller ID units can be connected to a single remote receiver, so you'll always know who's calling. Recommended Price: $79.99 (Please note that prices are subject to change and the listed price is correct to the best of our knowledge at the time of posting)
