Is there an SPS code or hack to enable caller ID on the S3? If so, would I have to plug a phone line into it for it to work or is there a way for it to get the info from my Vonage box connected to my network?
I would think that there are very few S3's that have a phone line hooked to them, as opposed to using either the Ethernet or USB/WiFi Internet connection. If you can afford the S3, you can probably afford a home Internet connection. Some people on this forum have expressed the question of why the S3 even has a phone modem.
The S3 has a Phone line. Yes, most of them probably arent hooked up. But thats only because there is no value added atm. If they offered a caller id feature then I, for instance would hook up a phone line so I can see who calls when watching tv instead of getting up and looking at the phone.
Vaild Point. I want this too. I think theres a way to do it if you hack hte S3. But its really difficult at this point and I am to dumb for that hack
I think on-screen CallerID is a great idea, it would be a simple code update for Tivo and good for marketing. If support costs are the issue make it a SPS code.
While watching Tivo, my biggest interruption is the phone ringing. CallerID on screen would mean no more pausing and looking for the cordless phone. Typically when I find the phone, you have the phone in your hand at that point, why not answer it.
Sounds like a great idea, I would run a phone line to the S3 just for that reason.
