[hcflinux] Caller ID not supported?

I'm glad to hear that caller ID is working...

I don't know if this modem has the required hardware.  I can tell you
every component that's on the board, but I do not have any 
documentation that was delivered with the modem.  On the other hand, 
I have gigabytes of documentation from the web, but I can't be positive 
what is applicable and/or accurate.

AT+VCID=1 produces an OK response, as does AT+VDR=1.  I don't consider
that a guarantee that the required hardware is there, but I'd like to
think it's at least a good sign.  The software is not blindly giving 
responses to everything; AT+FCLASS=8 produces ERROR, and
consistently, AT+FCLASS=? produces '0'.

Thanks for the information.
