Caller ID
« on: November 07, 2008, 09:26:14 PM »
  Out of all the freeware apps available, why isn't there a simple caller ID app that does one thing and one thing only, pop up a small window with caller ID information and perhaps the options to hang up (dialup) or ignore?
  I've tested a few apps (freeware & shareware that supposedly had this option, but they didn't work as advertised or just didn't get along with the rest of the OS.
  I have an app like that which came with my modem (Modem On Hold), but for some reason it stopped showing the caller ID info after SP1 (XP Home), it jut pops up a blank window.  Of course this app was written for 98 & ME and there isn't any kind of update for it that I can find.....
