Settings Description
Patterns The following characters have special meanings:

  • Z matches the numbers 1-9;
  • N matches the numbers 2- 9;
  • [12345-9] matches the numbers in the bracket (in this example, 1, 2, 3, 4,5, 6, 7, 8,

Strip Strip allows you to specify the number of digits that will be stripped from the front of the Caller ID before the call is displayed. For example, if the incoming Caller ID is 05929999999, but you need to dial number 5929999999 to call back, one digit should be stripped.
Prepend These digits will be prepended to the Caller ID before the call is displayed. For example, if the incoming caller ID is 5929999999, but you need to dial digit 0 before the number to call back, 0 should be prepended.
