A communication base-set with LCD screen pro- vides the feature of storing pre-programmed images within a microprocessor memory When a caller attempts to contact someone, a caller ID number is sent with the call. The receiver base-set matches the caller ID num- ber to the preprogrammed image, and displays the image on the base-set LCD screen. As shown in Figure 2, the image can be displayed while the alert ring is generated, thereby offering a visual call screening aid as well.
