I looked into this subject about a year ago and discovered that for me it wasn't worth the expense.

One of the regular contributors here ( sorry can't remember who) pointed out that the vast majority of modems are designed to work with the USA system and are not compatible with the BT system. I think BT put the CLID info after the 1st ring whereas the Americans put it before the ring.

There modems available to work with BT if you really need this facilty.
