Let me add my observations about the "Name Unavailable" issue...
I have a 622 with the AT&T "all options" land line connected directly from a wall outlet to the receiver. I noticed this entry occasionally being stored in the caller ID history, but never seeing it pop-up on the screen real-time.
I finally narrowed it down to where I could cause this to happen...it happens every time I am either watching a pre-recorded program, or if I pause a real-time program when the phone rings.
The "real" caller ID will pop-up on the screen, I press the pause button, press select to clear the pop-up, answer the phone and after the call I hang up the phone and resume the program.
Now when I check my caller-ID log I find the "real" caller ID and a "Name Unavailable" entry in the log, both with the exact same time/date stamps. The "Name Unavailable" entry never popped up on my screen, but is stored back-to-back with the actual caller ID.
Seems like if you pause the receiver while the phone is still ringing I get two entries in the log...if I answer the phone without pausing the receiver only the "real" caller ID is stored....strange, but it is real...
