Hi David,

We are unable to reproduce that issue. Please make sure you have set a message to be announced after the initial announcement. Also if the answering machine in HAL picks up the "After the first announcement" text, the announcements will stop. I had to turn off the answering machine to test completely as I would initially only hear the first Announce text and then just on iteration of the After first announce text. When I turn the answering machine off, the announcement continued.

attached is a thumbnail of the settings I used which worked fine.

Also as an FYI, we had a remote session into Mr. Holt's computer and it turned out he wasn't getting any caller ID into his computer even with HAL off...
