New guide or old guide ?

In the new guide, this was in the Extras section, under Caller Id / notifications .... that section has been renamed to APPS ... but when I looked in the Apps I found nothing that covers Caller Id.

Also, I wonder if D* is doing away with the Caller Id ... (seeing less and less people use landlines anymore) , I thought I read that someone said the HR54 no longer does Caller Id. iirc.

I have a HR44 and my Caller Id does still work, but I don't see it in the menu any longer.

And even those of us with landlines may not have a jack anywhere near the receiver. My house has one phone jack and I have wireless phones in other rooms.

I seem to recall that Dish had a way to use Caller ID with VOIP. I use a land line so I never paid close attention.

If your VoIP service has CID, and a cable is plugged into the equipment, both providers should work with VoIP if the receiver supports it.

Over on the Dish threads, I see that you can also get Caller ID on a Hopper with a cell phone.

Which doesn't work with Voip ? (the 54 ?, I thought the 54 didn't even have the ability to hook it up that way)
I have a HR44 and the Caller Id with my Voip service works great.
