LG KU990 Caller ID

Hi. I've had a Viewty for a couple of months but whenever someone calls me the phone says 'no caller ID'. I've checked with everyone and they're phones aren't set to private so I think its a setting I can't find or something. Thanks!

  • If you answer the call, the number (or number and name) stays on the display until either you or the caller hangs up.
  • If you do not answer the call, most display units keep a record of the calls received, including the phone number (or number and name), date, and time.
  • If the letter P, priv, private, or a similar term appears, the caller may have blocked the display of his or her number.
  • If the letter O, ????, out of area, or a similar message appears, the caller either is in an area that does not support Caller ID or has placed the call using operator assistance.
  • Caller ID comes with Anonymous Call Rejection, which, when active, allows you to reject calls from callers who block their number. Your phone does not ring, and the caller hears a message saying blocked calls will not go through.
    • To turn on Anonymous Call Rejection, press
      *77 on a touch-tone phone (or dial 1177 on a rotary phone)
    • To turn off this service, press
      *87 on a touch-tone phone (or dial 1187 on a rotary phone)

or go through

After reading this and seeing that other people have the same problem with same phone as me on 3, I called 3 and told him what was happening. He said that caller ID was deactivated for me and that he would activate me and it should be good to go within 4 hours.

I told him that I had searched the internet and found a lot of other people with the same problem, same phone, all on 3, and he said that the case is most likely that the Viewty doesn't come with Caller ID active by default (for some stupid reason). He said that if I know anyone else with the problem I should just tell them to call 3 and ask to have caller ID activated.

So try it, and I'll come back on here tomorrow and let you know if it worked. I hope so - I had 5 calls today in 2 minutes, which sounds urgent, and I don't know who it was. Good luck guys! God bless.

Nck code for lg ku990 viewty

Hi, you can find lg ku990 viewty network unlock code from your provider. Call them and make request about unlock code and you must be patient to wait for a couple of weeks before you get that code. But if you want instant lg unlock code you can purchase from online unlock code retailer and you just need to wait for a couple of minutes.

Hi, how can I add a special ringtone to certain contacts on my LG KU990i? TIA

(answering myself!)
you can associate ringtones and photos with a caller, but only if the caller's details are in the phone memory, not on the SIM card.

easy when you know how!

Caller id

Some phones are not equiped to pick up call waiting caller id. check the box or look up your model number on the uniden site. The call waiting caller id only shows up on the phone that is in use at the time of the call.

Caller ID

Even at its factory defaults your Siemens handset should be showing the caller id after the second ring. Look at your time and date on the phone, if they are not accurate then the caller id signal is not coming through since when activated caller id will not only give you the caller information, but it syncs with the telephone companys clock too. If I were there, I would take a phone that is known to have its caller id working and plug it in your line and see if caller id shows up on it. If it does show caller id, then there is something wrong with your Siemens base. If it does not, then your phone company dropped the ball and caller id is not activated. Then I would take the Siemens phone to another line (neighbor or friend) that has working caller id and plug my Siemens into it and see if it shows up. Doing all that will isolate your problem, I guarantee it.
