How to set ringer from 2 rings to 4 or more on v-tech vtcs6114


The CS6114 isn't an answering machine. It will continue to ring until someone or something picks up or the caller hangs up.

If you have an answering machine connected to your phone, consult its documentation. If you need further assistance, please repost your question and identify the answering machine.

No caller ID. TP company says I have service.


  • Did you fully charge your phone? - Make sure you fully charge for 16-24 hours .

  • Is the battery old? - Replace the battery.

  • Is the electrical outlet switch turned on? - If you are using AC (electrical) power, make sure that the unit is connected to a non-switched electrical outlet.

  • Are the connecting wires tight - Unplug the AC power converter from the unit and plug it back in.

  • Do you have Caller ID service with your telephone company - In order to receive Caller ID records, you must subscribe to the standard name and number Caller ID service available through your local telephone company. If the Caller ID works for normal calls but not on Call waiting calls, then you must contact your phone company to get the combined CID/CW service.

  • Caller ID shows up after second ring - Be sure to wait until the second ring before answering. Caller ID signals comes through after the first ring, if caller pick ups phone too soon Caller ID signal will not be transmitted to the handset.

  • Confirm that caller ID is still working on that particular line by checking another phone on the same line - If Caller ID is not coming through contact your phone company provider.

If this does not fix your problem, contact your authorized Service Center.*

I can not get my messages that are stored in the phone. Model # t2326. Cordless 2.4GHz technology


That model has Caller ID/Call Waiting and stores 30 calls. I f the caller ID does not display when the phone is ringing, assuming the display works, report to the local phone company. Make sure they have you turned on for caller ID service. If the calls are displayed when it rings but cannot be retrieved later, the phones is defective or they have been accidentally erased.

Caller ID does not work


I FIXED IT!!!  YIPEEE!!

What I did was UNPLUG the base's power unit from the wall... waiting about one minute, and plugged it back in.  That caused it to "reboot" the entire system, and the CID now shows itself.

Caller id


This is a feature from your phone company you may have to pay extra for. Caller ID information is normally transmitted just after the first ring. When you are using call waiting there is no ring.
