    Does anyone know how to clear all calls on the CID screen?

    Removing calls one at a time is tedious, and when I delete a single call, the screen defaults back to the menu screen, so I have to basically start over to delete the rest, one at a time.

    Any help on how to do this will be appreciated!

    You cannot delete all of them at one time. But you can go to another screen to keep deleting them without going back to the menu. I am not home right now and don't remember where it is but I think if you click on the option over top of your list of CID numbers it takes you to another screen that list all of them out and you just keep deleting them.

    If you cannot figure it out or if some else does not post anything let me know and when I get home I will reply.

    Does it really matter if they are cleared if the oldest drops off for a new call?

    No. I never clear mine.

    Thought I read somewhere on this site that the bucket would only hold so many, and that once full, no more calls would be logged. If that is incorrect, and the machine will delete the oldest calls first, I'm done.

    I think there may have been a bug with the software a while ago that was causing that problem for some people. But I have not deleted any of mine in 3 months and it keeps working.

    press Menu
    select > Caller ID & Msgs
    select > Edit Settings
    select > Messages
    select each message to delete.

    This should let you delete all of them one at time without hopping back and forth to the menu

    Hope this helps.

    Sounds like that should work. Thank you!

    I like to clear them to keep certain calls recorded. At least that is what I do with my phone...
