Set Date and time manually if desired. 1. Press and hold the [dial] button until the display show "SET left OR right ". 2.

Use the up/down buttons to adjust the setting, and press the dial/menu button to confirm and set. NOTE: It is important to set the Area code so that the telephone can distinguish local or long distance calls when dialing from the Caller ID list. NOTE: Time and Date will automatically set when you recieve the first or second Caller ID
The time and date will update automatically when you receive a call as long as you receive caller id from the telephone service provider. Current time and date are part of the Caller ID data stream. Once the time is received the Fanstel unit will keep time from there and it will be updated every time you get a new call.
Hold down the Delete button and press the Down button. LCD settings
show. Keep pressing the Delete button until you get to Hour and
Minutes. Change the hour and minutes, then keep pressing the Delete
button until the screen is normal again.
If the time is changing by hours, it may be that CID is set for the wrong area. IIRC Caller ID resets by the first call after 3AM. If that's the case, please post your phone system model that the phones plug into. It may be a TA-624/824 or any one of the other 18 or so models that the phone will work with.
I was able to reset my GTE Cidco SA-60A-20 caller ID unit with the following procedure:
1. Remove the battery.
2. Wait several minutes after the display fades away.
3. While holding down the "Delete" key, reinsert the battery.
4. Release the "Delete" key.
5. The unit will come up showing a boot process and end with a screen allowing you to choose the English or Spanish language.
Hold down the two review buttons for several seconds until it asks what language you want. Once there, you will be presented with a series of questions, followed by two choices. The left arrow button is for the choice on the left; the right arrow button is for the choice on the right. I chose "no" for 1+ dialing, and when I got to the place to enter my area code, I used the numbers on the keypad to enter a nonsense area code. Now the caller ID shows area codes. This was the best I could do, since the manual is long gone.
