Somewhere, like on pdf page 48 there's a note about 7 digit dialing. In MENU GLOBAL SETUP AREA CODE it displays yours. Press DELETE and OK and it goes away.

Here's the manual: http://www.uniden.com/pdf/TRU9488om.pdf

I get busy signal when dialing from contact list in my Uniden Dect 6.0


New telephone company procedures in many areas now
require that all 10 digits be dialed even for local calls --
Area Code + Exchange + Number

Perhaps your Directory listings do not include the area code ?

Good luck!

I have activated the caller id block for my outgoing calls. How do I reverse this process so that my number shows up to the people that I call?


The procedure depends on your phone company, not on your phone. With some phone companies, for example, dialing *82 before dialing the phone number will deactivate caller ID blocking for this call.
Please contact your phone company for full instructions.

Do I have to pay the phone company for caller ID? Or does my phone have it automatically. I have a Uniden EX13246 2.4GHz cordless.


The EXI3246 is capable of displaying the caller ID information, and automatically will do so if the information is present. However, most phone companies charge extra to provide this information.

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

Not showing the area code when people call


If they're calling from the same area code that's set in your "Global Setup", then the area code won't show.

Where I live, you have to dial the area to call them back, so I set our area code in the phone's Global Setup to 000.

That worked and now I can scroll through caller ID, see the whole 10-digit number, and return all calls (w/area code) with no problem.

Hope that helps!

It does not display the area code on the caller ID


Somewhere, you told it your area code. Take that part out or put a different one in and it will show 10 digits.

I have call waiting and caller ID through my phone company. I have two Uniden phones--EXA17980 and EX15160 cordless phones. Both phones should display the caller ID while I am on the phone with another...


You're right, at least one of them should. You should contact your telephone company and ensure you have Caller ID while on Call Waiting service (CIDCW) - it's not always the same as just Caller ID. Sometimes they'll want even more money. :)

Does the Dect 6.0 recognize when a phone number needs a 1 before the area code (1-800-.......)?   I entered some numbers with the required 1, and some without it.  All the calls went through.   In a few...


If you save from caller ID to the phone book from an out of area code number, the manual doesn't tell you that you have press the * key while the number is displayed and it will insert a 1 before the area code. Do this before trying to call from caller ID or copying the number to the phone book. I had to delete the area code stored in the global set up to get the caller the "*" feature to work for my local calls other wise it would just put a 1 in before the 7 digit number and would not work when it is store.
