Some people are able to bill their clients for telephone consultation so a timer in the handset would facilitate that. The good news is that the call log will also capture the call duration.highq wrote:Now that you're placing calls for free, just what use would you make of a call timer?

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.
Also, you could export the whole shebang, say, at month's end, and filter your outbound calls in the spreadsheet. Then let it do the math and *badabing-badaboom*, you've got your exact number of billable minutes.

Call cost and client billing are good reasons, I like to have the call timer so I can tell the other person how long they've put me on hold! For that the call timer display is needed on the handset... my Panasonic has it and because of that I tend to reach for it instead of the Telo.highq wrote:Now that you're placing calls for free, just what use would you make of a call timer?
