oContacts can have pictures
oContacts can have multiple phone numbers
oContacts can be matched by full and partial phone numbers and names
oContacts can have address information
oCalls and contacts have notes
oOutgoing calls are tracked when a Whozz Calling? device is used (except Whozz Calling? Lite devices)
oCall duration is tracked when a Whozz Calling? device is used (except Whozz Calling? Lite devices)

oThe Ascendis Caller ID Database can be backed up and restored to and from a single file
