Can I get Call Display on this device?
The Home Phone service only supports calling number identification. However, contact names stored on your home phone equipment may display for incoming calls.
My reception isn't very strong, what can I do to improve it?
The Home Phone device provides the best voice quality when it is installed near a window or outside wall.
