Yes you can get stand alone caller ID units, they simply plug into the main line in phone jack. BTW, If you have a modem in your PC you can also then use it as a telephone "anything" Call center, answer-phone, voice-mail, and of course Caller ID. A lot of the software is freeware available on the 'net for download and install.
The caller id information is sent from your local telco provider after the first ring and might not be able to be extended to the individual sets, try backing off the ring to answer on your voice mail from 2 to 3 rings to see if the information is then passed on. The Voice Messaging System message is being sent from the system showing who transfered the call to you. You should also notice that the ring pattern when that message is displayed is a standard ring followed by a beep meaning a transfer is taking place.
2 line caller id is offered on newer versions of software. On earlier versions a call id name button is used to toggle between the clid name and number.
To program a button on your set press feature 00, press a button you wish to program as clid name,
and press feature 16, press feature 00 to exit programming. Press the button to toggle from clid number to clid name
Your system is actually called Partner.
Compatible phones will consist of MLS12, MLS12D(display),Mls18, 18D(caller id display), 6D(display), 34, 34D(display) No other phone will work on this system
To program phone numbers
Press Feature 00, press/select a buton to program, input speed dial number. Press Feature 00 again.
It depends on the version of partner ACS/ partner plus you have.If your version is after 4.0 it should do a two line caller ID. 3.0 and before you can program a button to toggle from number to name. thats done by pressing the feature key followed by 00, pressing the button you wish to program as clid name and entering feature 16, press feature 00 when finished.
hope that helps
There's a whole sequence of CID associations that need to be done to make CID work the way you want it. It requires an 18 or 34 D, and you start turning on system programs 317, 318, 319 and program a Feature 23 button to the phone that logs all calls.
