Default Internet Call Managers>call Display = No Display

Looking for a solution, especially a free one...

I have "experimented" with about a half dozen products that CLAIM to be able to translate my "call display" feature from my telephone line to my desktop. ..and yes, I do have that service.

In principle, a great idea. Once upon a time, I used the services of the company that designed "Internet Call Manager." IT DELIVERED! I was happy. It was more interference and I could be as evil as I wanted behind the scenes and ignore calls ad nauseum.

But now, no more ICM, they no longer offer the service way up here in the boonies of CAN-AN-ADA...bummer! Bell, said it offers such, but upon further such deal...too muddlesome they say...and so their web site continues to offer it...go figure...

Next tack...look for an alternative...that is why I have tried to use about a half dozen different progs and NOT ONE WORKS! Oh, they install wonderfully well, and they set up magnificently. They keep well organized logs... But as soon as the phone rings, and the "pop up" pops up...all I get is "N/A." In board commands say they are correcting the issue...but nada...

Now, this should not be.

I have researched all the strings for my Intell modem...I have researched the strings for the progs...they all come back as "Intel(R) 536EP Modem:
at+vcid=1 - OK" I have even entered manually this string, sans the "OK." Nothing works.

Research has shown that the INTEL modems are prone to just not work period...with this feature...even if advertised that they do...but I am not about to buy another modem just so it will show pretty pics on my desktop.

I've never used such a program although it sounds very useful, got me thinking about investing in one myself ( if they work! ).

Rather than trying all the different programs, wouldn't it be better to research which modems work well in your area and just change it?

Default Call Disply on your DeskTop

Call Disply on your DeskTop is a service that cannot be done without if you are on the computer as much as I am, and don't want to be disturbed, or don't want to miss a call, or want to manage the input of calls to your home. It also gives you options of how to respond to, and answer, unwanted callers or intruders...such as automated calls, or telemarketers, or bill collectors Services offered depends on the prog and the price...if there is one...

The problem that I've found, is that of Dec. 06, I have been naked in the wind...bummer...

Visit Internet Call Manager's URL at: Internet Call Manager - Get Phone Calls While Online

"Important Service SHUT DOWN Notification: On Dec. 15 2006, Your Internet Call manager service will be shut down. Please read important details. Internet Call Manager has been customized for the telephone companies listed here. If your telephone service is offered through one of the listed telephone companies, please visit their web site for more information and to sign up for the service. Please note that service options and pricing may vary by service provider: Aliant, Cincinnati Bell, Frontier, Telus, TDS.

Presently, I am trying to get "PhoneTray Free" to work.

Just check google for [ desktop "call display" callerid] or other such keywords...

P/S the cost here in Canada, was only about $6/ it worked...your incoming calls would be permitted to use the Bell service, but would be redirected through their software, which you installed and set would be like a proxy call service provider. The only problem one might have is worrying about someone monitoring their calls. But, I don't care about that...not much goes on in a senior's life that needs monitoring, heh, heh, heh...

Add on: I just downloaded another 20 to test...will let you know if any work on my system...

Edit: June 09, 2007...none so far...
