does it show caller ID

answer 1
It shows only the calling tel # but, if you have a phone or system with a Phonebook where you store people you call often, it will deliver the names for those tel. $'s when they call. All other not in your phonebook will show only the number, which is a good sign you may not want to answer those calls.

Works especially well if you also enter a "special ring" for your friendlies, then you can tell right away that the call is one you prob. want to answer. -:)

it shows only the number, does not show the name either incoming or outgoing, as a result I took it back, sometimes the name is more important than the number.

Yes, we've been paying a "portability" fee for many years now.

You can port a landline number ported to a cell phone (e.g., ST Home Phone) and back to a landline AS LONG AS YOU STAY IN THAT SAME LANDLINE AREA CODE AND PREFIX AREA.

Yes, it has two phone jacks on the back.

I could not get their system to do anything except charge my credit card for the access fee (fortunately I only ordered the $15 card), which is non-refundable even though I could never use the system.

Yes, it has two jacks in the back for 2 separate phones.

You could have the base unit of a wireless set (I have an 8-set unit) and a std corded phone in the other jack, or you could connect a tel. cord to one of your existing wired jacks in your house and use corded phones at every jack in the house.

Lots of options.

answer 2
Yes, you can use those three phones and add more if you want.

At your main phone location, you can plug a tel. cable from the ST box to that phone jack, plug the phone into the back of the ST box, and use that phone there, as before.

However, now all your existing tel. wiring is "hot" since it's connected to the ST box at that main phone location. Your existing phones plugged into home wiring will work as before.

I have an 8-phone wireless set connected to my ST box. You could also add a wireless phone base to the 2nd jack in the back of the ST box and put wireless handsets wherever you want... I've got one in the bathroom!

Yes, you can use more than one phone. It has two places to plug in a phone. I have three working phones, four if you count the extension to my cordless phone. Two of them are plugged into the same jack where the house was already wired for phones. My husband figured out how to do it and it works.

This is a device that uses existing cell service near your home (or office) that you connect a regular telephone to. Then you use the phone like any other land line type of phone.

I could not get their system to do anything except charge my crdit card for the access fee (fortunately I only ordered the $15 card), which is non-refundable even though I could never use the system.

I don't think so - it is a telephone receiver for home use that uses cellular signals near your home. It sends and receives on the cell system, then you connect a telephone base unit to this device and use your phone like any regular phone, IF you can get it set up and IF you have excellent cell coverage near the place of use.

I could not get their system to do anything except charge my crdit card for the access fee (fortunately I only ordered the $15 card), which is non-refundable even though I could never use the system.
