I use a phone modem for my internet service. I was wondering if you could get a program to log the numbers coming into your phone and the numbers being dialed out.I don't a message manager or anything so I'll know if anyone is making long distance calls and i won't miss any calls.

Most of the phone companies are offering an internet call waiting program (answering machine) most will let you put the computer on call waiting while you take the call. If you have caller id you can even tell who is calling. I dont know if you can use that to log incomming numbers, you might.

As far as logging incomming and out going numbers there are systems you can get that do that, but they can get rather pricey. Alot of businesses you them. The name of the system eludes me at this moment, but you are looking at several hundred or even thousands of dollars to get that set up. I am willing to bet there is a cheaper way, but I dont't know what it would be.


p.s. CallWave offers an internet answering system with caller id.

I used it when it was free. its now $4.95 a month or something like that.

Some modems may have caller ID, but AFAIK, none have
DTMF detection. If it is a DSP Win type ,modem, you
could work at it (also requiring some modification to
the hardware). Better to get a pre-made commercial
product though.
