Voice CID Overview

BACKGROUND   

Subscribers to telephone services are receiving unwanted calls from marketeers and scammers on a daily/hourly basis. Most phones provide a "do not disturb" setting that prevents the phone from ringing if the caller's number is not listed in the phone's contact file. However, this does not prevent the unwanted caller from leaving a voicemail message and/or the call being added to the missed / recent call records.  


Aside from the frustration of receiving unwanted calls, the time spent adding phone numbers to a blocked callers list, deleting voicemail messages and deleting phone numbers from the recent calls records can be significant and disruptive to telephone subscribers worldwide.


PRESENT SOLUTIONS

Call blocking applications attempt to address the unwanted call/spam issue. Developers of these solutions invariably end up in a cat and mouse game with spammers who invest significant resources to create work-arounds that insure they can continue to deliver calls to subscribers. Identification numbers and passwords are stored in data bases that can be compromised and stolen, evidenced by the hacker's thefts of millions of supposedly secure user files from many corporations.  


Marketeers and Scammers have found ways to display a fraudulent Caller-ID, including numbers from stolen contact files, to the point that caller identification is ineffective in stopping unwanted calls.  Subscribers are shown a familiar phone number and answer the call only to be treatened with a legal action or arrest.  A simply way of accepting or blocking calls received by telephone subscribers is critical to the future of efficient, effective business and personal telephone communications. 


SUMMARY 

"Voice-CID" provides a simple, effective and impenetrable solution for blocking unwanted phone calls. With a simple "Who's calling?", Voice Signatures are captured and provide authentication of callers prior to connection of each call.  Introduction of the Voice-CID service can be facilitated by using caller-ID or entering / speaking a phone number to validate callers and record voice signatures for authenticating future calls. 


The Voice-CID process allows connection of the Caller to the Subscriber only when the caller's spoken name is authenticated and the caller is recognized as a family member, friend or associate.  The process is successful regardless of the phone or phone number that the caller is using to place the call. Voice-CID eliminates the aggravating intrusion of unwanted callers, eliminates the deletion of voicemail recordings, adding numbers to block lists and/or clearing of missed / recent calls records.  Rather, Voice-CID provides a simple, effective "who's calling?" method that safeguards legitimate telephone communications of businesses, government agencies and individuals.
