How do I set up the Call Blocker IN PARALLEL correctly?
In some instances, you may need to set up your unit IN-PARALLEL if you are unfortunate enough to lose caller ID on your phones/call blocker when the call blocker is attached.
This method doesn't take as much power from your line like the standard IN-LINE setup because it's technically sharing the line with the splitter/doubler.
The CPR Call Blocker will work absolutely fine set up this way, but you won't see the RED lights active on v.103/4/5/6/7/8 models (this is normal). The BLOCK NOW button will still block valid visible caller display numbers, however the unit cannot be programmed whilst set up IN-PARALLEL.
**If programming is needed, you will need to revert back to the normal IN-LINE connection method and then change back to PARALLEL when complete. My advice would be to program ALL programming codes into the Call Blocker whilst set up IN-LINE and then change to a PARALLEL connection and just use the BLOCK NOW button to block visible numbered calls as they are calling you.**
There is a work around for the unit to be programmed IN-PARALLEL. But it's a little tricky to achieve, especially on the v.103/4/5/6/7/8 models as there's no screen. It's easier to achieve on the v.201/v.202 models.
To do this;
WITHOUT getting a dial tone, simply dial the number you wish to block on your phone.
Then press the the green phone/talk/call button on your phone to ring the number.
Just before the number rings, the number you're dialling should appear on your call blocker screen as it's about to ring.
As soon as you see it on your call blocker screen, IMMEDIATELY press BLOCK NOW and the number will be instantly added to the BLOCK LIST.
This is a very handy tip for customers who need to program the call blocker regularly but have to keep swapping to an IN-LINE setup and then back to IN-PARALLEL to fix loss of caller ID on the phones/call blocker.
