Oh, I guess I didn't understand. I thought you had to hit the star key before you picked up the phone. However, if you can pick up the phone first, that would be nice.

Actually, you don't really need caller id, you answer, and if you hear that delay, you know the one where you hear silence then you can just hit the star key. That would be funny to see how many friends you have left. I bought one a few years ago and my dad called, and i did it to him, when he heard it, he bought one. I think it was inexpensive too, i don't remember how much, but it was about $30 if i remember right. Chris On Wed, 1 Feb 2006 16:28:49 -0600 "Neal Ewers" <neal.ewers@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > Hmmm!
