    Dear clever folks;

    I live in Denmark have a bought a fine American telephone.
    The Caller ID function doesn't work, since we use a different system
    here. (America uses Bellcore FSK, Denmark uses DMTF).

    I have now in Google found the following device hat should cure the

    The Artech EX 220 Caller ID converter.

    But where can you by the damn thing ? I have spent a long time
    seaching, but can't find a retailer anywhere on earth..

    I have been to Artech's main page , but I can't
    figure out how to order.l have written Artech, but so far no reply.
    They obviously do not want to sell their products :)

    Any ideas of how to buy or suggestions for a similar product ?

    ** Pocket pisser......

    ** Really.

    How fucking amazing !!!!

    Some Saab paddling wop buys a Yankee model phone that is ILLEGAL to use in

    ** Huh ?

    Caller ID works independently of the phone.

    Get a display unit for a few Krone anywhere ....

    Mr. Allisons delightful post fortunately helped me realize that my message
    may not have been simple and clear enough as to be understood by everybody,
    so I would like to add:

    It is a wireless phone and the caller ID is within the handset. I would
    like to see who is calling where-ever I have the handset, for example at the
    other end of the house or in the garden (far away from my old standalone
    DMTF ID-caller unit). Thus the new phone's built-in caller-ID display is
    unusable here, since the caller ID system her in Denmark is DMTF, as opposed
    to Bellcore FSK system of the new phone. The difference in Caller ID systems
    in different countries is the reason why converters exist, and also why the
    configuration of IP-adapters like for example Sipura and Grandstream 486
    have an option for selecting the relevant Caller ID-system. But I mostly use
    this new phone for traditional landline calls that does not go through the
    IP-adapter's configuration system, and thus those calls go unaffected by the
    adapters settings.

    So if someone knows how to solve this, be it with information about where to
    buy the converter or other, I would be grateful.

    It may have been my expression "fine American phone" that annoyed some
    people. All I wanted to say is that it is an attractivly designed wireless
    phone with several great functions like answering machine etc. and that it's
    caller ID system is the same one as they use in USA. All in order to
    pinpoint the problem. I do not automatically relate "fine" to "America" nor
    do I have prejudges against America, although I strongly oppose to many
    stupidities being committed "over there", especially over the last 3 years.

    And by the way, the (General Electric) phone was bought in Venezuela, who's
    president Hugo Chávez is driving Bush and Condolezza Rice mad.. That
    certainly warms my heart ! :)

    How do I get the converter ?

    "aa" = top posting, law breaking, Saab paddling total fool.

    ** As I pretty much expected .

    So it is ** DOUBLY ** illegal to use it in Denmark.

    It is not approved for the Danish phone network and it is not approved as a
    phone linked radio transmitting device in Denmark either.

    ** Nah - it was the fact you are such a smug and arrogant bloody idiot.

    ** What sort of madness makes you think the phone was actually made in the
    USA ????

    ** So NOW we find it is only approved for the ** Venezuela ** phone system
    and radio spectrum regulations !!!!

    This Grate Dane's lunacy just gets better and better !!!!!!

    ** Try Googling one up - fool.

    Ok. Now I understand.
    I never said it was made in USA.
    Many Italian cars are not made in Italy etc, etc.
    By the way, what makes you think I drive Saab ?
    As I suggested in my very first post, I have had no luck in doing do.
    To prove you are not a fool yourself, then please see if you can find the
    detailed info about purchasing a converter for me.
    If you can't, then that makes 2 of us...

    ** Blatant lie.

    ** Never said you did.

    ** There could be a very simple reason for that - you over snipping fool.

    ** I have not intention of doing anything to help - since what YOU are
    doing is illegal.

    Might as well ask me to track down prohibited drugs for you.

  11. He didn't. To quote PA " ...Saab paddling.."

    Stooooopid Phil thinks you paddle a Saab not realising that Saab is an
    automotive manufacturer. Of course, we wouldn't expect Phil to know that,
    because at the age of 53 he hasn't go a driver's licence. Mind you Saab
    also make busses, and I'm sure the little bleeder has caught one of them at
    some time. However he's too stooooopid to notice things like that. :p

    Well, if the phone has a display and is set up to receive Bell 202
    (probable) or V.23 (which are usually interoperable - if the filters aren't
    too selective) it won't be able to display the DTMF caller ID they use in
    some scandinavian countries. Yepp, the separate display will work, but it
    won't display on his "fine American phone", the converter will.

    Such eloquent use of the English language as normal.


    Philthy have you considered getting into the Guinness Book
    of World Records for the most hated and Killfiled person in
    UseNet history? Worth a go as you would actually end up
    with a documented and recognised achievement.

    I daresay you mean BPSK??

  16. I think he means DTMF - Dual Tone Multi-Frequency
    DPSK - Differential Phase Shift Keying
