  • Patent number: 6192116
    Abstract: A system and method for generating caller ID or caller ID-call waiting (CID or CIDCW) information with a user inputted message. In the present system and method, a central office receives a user inputted message and a destination number from a caller's phone, attaches the user inputted message to either the CID or CIDCW information of the caller to produce a destination message, and transmits the destination message to a display of a phone corresponding to the destination number. In this way, the caller's specially inputted message is displayed with the CID/CIDCW information on a display of the call receiving party.
