Hi Mello,

This is NOT possible based on the CLID of the caller

This is the closest thing;

Distinctive Ring per Line

This release adds support for seven distinctive ring patterns to Cisco IP phones. Phone users with multiline phones can configure a distinctive ring pattern for each line on the basis of a logical precedence or importance.

This setting is done on the phone itself. Via Settings>User Preferences>Rings

Once there you can select the Line that you want to set a ring for and Select>Play>Select>Save>Exit


Hope this helps!

No.  You can only configure different ringtones (available on the system) on a per-line basis.  So lines have distinctive rings but not calls.
