This section contains information about the
Caller ID service offered through Verizon. IUP’s Centrex service provides all
IUP telephone lines covered by this agreement with basic caller ID
capabilities. All Caller ID costs are covered by the basic agreement.
Caller ID displays the telephone number of the
person who is calling. The caller ID information is passed to your telephone by
Verizon between the first and second ring. This information will be displayed
if your telephone instrument is capable or if you have attached a special unit
which displays the number to your telephone. Many phones and auxiliary
display units maintain a call history so you can review who has called you. Callers may also choose to have their numbers
blocked when making a call.
When you call someone who has Caller ID, your
phone number will appear on their display unit. You may choose to block the
display of your phone number by using Per Call Blocking or Line Blocking. There
is no charge if you use Per Call Blocking. Verizon will assess a one-time
service charge if you request permanent Line Blocking.
If you do not wish to receive calls from people who block the display of their phone numbers, activate the Anonymous Call Rejection feature.
When ACR is activated, your phone will not ring when an anonymous call is received. The caller will receive a recorded message saying that blocked calls are not accepted.
