All Received Calls showing up as Unknown Number LG U990

ALL calls received by my phone all show up as Unknown Number. There isn't any settings that I can change to fix this (as far as I know). I have made sure the people that have called me set their preferences to show their number, but it doesn't show up on my phone.

I have no idea who called or is calling me at any time. Please help?

    I have the same problem, I've altered my settings but for some reason it has flicked itself over to showing them as unavailable!

  • ashbarns Jan 12, 2009

    2 of my friends have this phone who ARENT on 3, they dont have this problem. My sister is on 3 and DOES have this problem.

    Yep, I'm on 3 and have the same problem. Anyone tried going into the store and asking them to fix it / replace with another phone?!

    Yep, just got the phone a few days ago and every call I receive comes up as Unkown, even though the callers number is a contact on my phone. I will go to the 3 store in the next few days and let you guys know what they say.

I just came back from the 3 store and for all of you having the issue, take a deep breath because its solved easily. All you have to do is call up a number (not sure what it is in your country) and they will turn some feature of your contract on, im not sure of the official name and caller id's will be working in the next 4 hours. Go to your local 3 store or call them up for support and hopefully they will do it for you.
Good luck!

Hi, My Nokia N72 phone has stopped showing the incoming call number display. Its showing call. In the received calls also its showing as "no number". How to correct it with any setting changes.. please...

You will need to see if the service provider has blocked your calls with a reason and so call up the tool free to confirm .
If the SIM is tested also on another set it can be confirmed.
if so the software of the phone must be reinstalled.

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.

Some calls are coming through as "unknown number" on my LG U990, despite the callers having ID sent selected on their phone.

Some network providers are having trouble with caller id. You need to be sure that friends or callers are not putting code for unknown caller. Automatically You receiving as unknown calls.
Check Your phone on setting caller id click on show.

How to block anonymous calls from lg cu515 cell phone

I am having the same problem, and this is the only thing I've found to do: If it's from the same number (the one calling me was 000-000-0000), just go to your received calls list and save the number as a contact (I saved it as "Telemarketer A--holes"). Then go into your contacts list, and assign "No Ring" to that number. Then they can call as much as they want, but it won't ring. It'll still show up on your received list, but at least it won't wake you up.
