Caller indentification shows all calls as "unknown"

Hi
My Samsung F250 has previously shown my caller identification. It suddenly changed and all my calls are shown as unknown even though the 'show caller indentification' button has been ticked as yes.

I dropped the phone, hopefully nothing was damaged??

Thanks for your help.
Regards Ida

The problem is not "show caller identification" its "show my number" "show caller identification" are for calls that comes in.

Try this..

Go to Menu>Settings>Call settings>All Calls>Show My Number>choose Send Number

hopefully that will solve the problem :):)

On Samsung jet s8000 Incoming calls display unknown caller message, but call log shows ID


Check your Sim in another phone to confirm , if there is no CLIP then the service provider has barred you and must get in touch. Also is possible that the phone has hung up because there are errors in the software. So to reset remove the battery and the memory card from the phone. Using your PC , scan the memory card for any corrupt files or media files with virus- it is possible when they are downloaded from unsafe sites. If so remove or format the card. Now replace the card and battery and switch on the phone. If the phone hangs up then it is confirmed that the software is corrupt and will need a reinstallation. Seeking help from the authorized service /support centre is most ideal. Take estimate and decide.

I have samsung cell phone and i receive a particular call as unknown( unknown appears on phone screen litterly) an d for others call, its showing either the number or name if added in the list. what i do...


hi my friend
when you press the down key in the left side of the phone for 2 seconds , it makes a fake call for you , it is a trick to call a fake call with yourself to run away from a boring place or person :D and when you press that key , the name of caller shown as "unknown"

good luck ;)

UNIDEN TRU8888-CALLER ID DOES NOT WORK


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. I think you have stored more than 100 Caller ID messages and hence the caller ID is not showing on Uniden Tru8888. In the following cases the caller ID will not be shown-

If you answer a call before the Caller ID message is received (for example, before the second ring), the Caller ID message will not appear.

When the call is received via a telephone company that does not offer Caller ID service, the caller’s phone number and name does not appear. (This includes some international calls.)

When the call is via a private branch exchange (PBX), the caller's phone number and name may not appear.

You may receive any one of the following messages:

When a private name is received; Private Name
When a private number is received; Private Number
When a unknown name is received; Unknown Name
When a unknown number is received; Unknown Number
When invalid data is received; Incomplete Data

The Caller ID list stores information for incoming calls - even unanswered calls. You can store up to 100 Caller ID messages and phonebook entries (including Speed Dials) for each handset and the base. You can view the Caller ID list through the handset or base during a call or when the phone is in standby mode.

Memory locations for Caller ID messages and Phonebook entries (including Speed Dials) are common, you can store up to all 100 entries for each handset and the base. Caller ID messages are not stored when you have 100 phonebook entries. When you have stored a total of 100 phonebook entries and Caller ID messages, the oldest Caller ID message is overwritten.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Lg insight caller id wont show who's calling, it just says at&t incoming call instead of someones name


Hi,probably the person who is calling you has activated CLIR (call line identification restriction) or you don't have CLIP (call line identification presentation).
