DTMF is techno-speak for tone dialing (as opposed to pulse). Your GE phone is DTMF.

I contacted GE today and they told me how to get the caller ID to work on the additional handsets. You must follow these steps in the exact order given.

#1 - unplug the base phone
#2 - unplug the telephone line from the base phone
#3 - remove the battery packs from the phones
#4 - wait 10 minutes.

reverse the order when assembling. Put battery packs in phones, put the telephone line back in the base phone and lastly plug all phones back in. It takes about another 10 minutes after that before all phones start recognizing caller ID but it now works fine.

DKT3020SD Corded Phone: HOW DO I DISPLAY THE CALLER ID ON A TOSHIBA DKT322...


Caller ID in POTS networks is a service which has to be subscribed to. The local exchange (to which the user's line is attached) has to allocate a DTMF sender for each and every incoming call, for it to be picked up by your phone and shown on its screen. Talk to your phone company for further informations.
Just my 2 cents... Carlos

Caller ID/CLIP) not working in Panasonic cordless


Well if the phone has been bought abroad and being used in India you will face this problem. this is because of the format of transmitting the caller id info being different. In USA it is STF and in India it is DTMF. You need a convertor in the phone line which is DTMF to STF. IF you find onw in Delhi pl let me also know.

I learnt that in India DTMF is used while in US it is FSK for Caller ID`s.
Get a EX220 converter and put it in between your Tel and system
It works

The id caller is not working in that cordless phone


Any Caller Id phone bought in USA will not show the id as the Caller id format in USA is FSK and in India it is DTMF. You need a caller id converter from DTMF to FSK. It is available online on www.ebay.in Just type DTMF to FSK converter and the item will be displayed. Right now it is avilable only with a seller in Bangalore and the price is Rs.589/- per piece. I bought it and it is working fine.

CALLER ID NOT DISPLAYED.DISPLAYS EXTERNAL CALL


Caller ID in the USA uses the FSK standard. For the most part, callerID in India uses DTMF (although I have heard of some FSK usage).

I am currently living in New Delhi and have an Airtel home phone line.My switch uses DTMF. I went to the Palika electronics bazaar (I awaysuse shop number 266 near gate 5, they seem to be a little kinder toforeigners as far as the "final price") and purchased an DTMF to FSKconvertor. My US phones now show caller ID information, although usingUS number seperations ### - ### - ####. I paid R500 but you couldprobably get it for around R400 if you are willing to put in the timebargaining. It looks like they are also available on Indian Ebay.

Mine says UST001B. It looks like these are low volume items becausethey stuck the components into a box marked "DSL Splitter" It works toconvert the caller ID as advertised.

Caller id not working


US phones use Bellcore FSK caller id. India uses DTMF caller id. Buy a DTMF- FSK converter at a telecom shop.

The display doesn't show the caller ID. It simply shows "no data". PS: I have the caller ID service and the phone is fully charged.


probably your phone have a incompatible call ID system (probably FSK), and your line is DTMF. Needs a standard converter, from DTMF to FSK.

Caller ID is not working in India.


For people who have purchased cordless phone in usa and caller id is not working they should purchase fsk to dtmf converter at any local phone shop and caller id will start working.

Here is the article on various frequency used by various countries for caller id.

Hope this will help you out.

Detailed Product Description

There are 3 major caller ID specifications in the world: DTMF, ETSI FSK and Bellcore FSK. When users buy a foreign telephone devices(such as cordless phone, fax machine or computer telephony interface), may encounter the problems of non-match for caller ID standard. This will cause the device unable to display the caller ID. EX220 can solve this problem easily. This product can receive all 3 kinds of caller ID format, and convert to FSK(Bellcore or ETSI selectable) to match foreign telephone's standard.
EX220 has a rechargeable battery inside the device, during idle status, it gets power from the telephone line and recharge the battery, so no need to use or replace battery. Just plug one end to telephone line, and the other to the telephone device.
For example, if you live in Netherlands, Saudi or India, the caller ID standard is DTMF. You purchased a cordless caller ID phone from US(which uses Bellcore FSK standard), or from Germany(which uses ETSI FSK standard). You won't be able to use the caller ID feature. In this case, just get one EX220 and connect it between the telephone line and the cordless phone, your cordless caller ID phone will display the caller's number immediately.
Remark:
1. Telephone sets for UK and Japan standard are not applicable.
2. In some countries, users must subscribe to Telecom for caller ID service

Feature List
Caller ID Format Conversion --- Convert 3 kinds of caller ID(DTMF, Bellcore FSK or ETSI FSK) to ETSI FSK or Bellcore FSK(selectable)
Date/Time Stamp --- The DTMF caller ID doesn't content date/time stamp. User can set up clock of EX201, so each call will be sent with actual date and time stamp
Area Code Setting --- User can set up the area code, so the dial back feature can easily applied
Rechargeable battery powered by line --- Just connect to the telephone line, the built-in rechargeable battery can get power from the telephone line, no need any external battery nor power supply

News
Now, Multi-Line caller ID converter is available.
