Hi
I had the same problem
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

Caller ID is not working


Hello Samiran mandal, here is a solution.I purchased one cordless telephone (Siemens Gigaset) in Germany. I also had the same problem, caller-id did not work. I purchased this telephone because we can set different ringtones for different caller groups. But, if caller-id doesn't work, this feature also doesn't work. I had gone through internet and finally found that CA electronics, Bangalore has it and got it through courier (I live in Pondicherry). It worked flawlessly for two years. Then it stopped working. For 'no reason' I ordered for a 'caller-id' unit on ebay for Rs.75/- (+ Rs.75 shipping). I just got the unit and fixed it to my line. Very very surprisingly, my cordless telephone is now showing caller info. This is a real surprise to me. By the way, caller-id unit is "Eurotel" make, DTMF/FSK caller-id. I feel this is very nice solution. The 'caller-id' unit is nice (backlit display) and also there is no need of converter for using the caller-id feature of your foreign telephone. I connected caller-id between the line and telephone. That's all. Enjoy.

My uniden phone bought in USA does not display called ID thouhgh BSNL has enabled it. My cheap chinese phone was displaying it. Any help?


Caller ID standards are different in India and the USA, so Caller ID function will not work. You need to purchase a converter which converts from DTMF to Bell FSK standard.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!

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.

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 working


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

Caller ID not working in India


I too purchased an Uniden phone for India. Everything except the caller ID works fine. The caller ID wont work as the technology used in India is different. Try purchasing a FSK to DTMF converter or a separate caller ID box.

No caller ID information for GE Caller ID phone ( Model # 29385GE1)


I must have gotten your unit. Mine did work ONCE after it had been installed for about a week. But it never worked again and we pitched it. Buy something else.

CALLER ID NOT WORKING


not only Panasonic, most other brand phones imported from other countries wont work in in India ( caller ID). Panasonic phones of Panasonic India, will work.I think panasonic has to explain this. if there are networks which does not support this equipment, atleast they should mention this is their booklets, to avoid users roam around telecom offices. To my understanding, all the land phones of BSNL through out India are caller ID enabled by default and is free!.

Caller id


Caller ID in the USA uses the FSK standard. For the most part, caller ID 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 aways use shop number 266 near gate 5, they seem to be a little kinder to foreigners as far as the "final price") and purchased an DTMF to FSK convertor. My US phones now show caller ID information, although using US number seperations ### - ### - ####. I paid R500 but you could probably get it for around R400 if you are willing to put in the time bargaining. It looks like they are also available on Indian Ebay.

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