Disappearing outgoing caller ID

A few weeks ago, when I would call someone from my cordless phone, my number started not showing up and my name comes up as 'unknown caller'. when I call from a corded phone from the same location, my phone number comes up and so does my name. I called my phone company (Verizon) and they said they could find nothing wrong, but deleted and then reinstalled my caller ID. they said I probably needed a new battery for my cordless phone. so I bought one for $13 bucks, and there's no change, my number still doesnt show up and I'm still an 'unknown caller'. is there a setting on the phone that I'm missing? seems like this all started when we had to begin using 1-area code-number for our local calls. maybe a coincidence.

Open this link; go to the FAQ's for an MD760/MD761 and it solved my similar problem for my phone. Primarily, you will be resetting your system (almost like rebooting) and if necessary, deregister and follow with registering. I did not have to do the last part (deregister), but it does work. Good luck.

SOURCE: The screen became blank

I would say the LCD is dead. They seem prone to that because we have had to replace two handsets with exactly the same problem. The one lost the top row of the screen, the second is completely screendead. Though all is not lost. Any GAP compatible cordless handset will work with that base, so you can replace them and not have to buy an entire system :) Ebay is a good source for handsets only.

SOURCE: Binatone Cordless Phone (2nd set) loses charge quickly

The batteries that are in most cordless phones, and even cell phones, have a "memory". If the battery is constantly being fully discharged from a lack of charging, or if it's used to being on the charger all the time, it will reduce the life of the battery substantially. You'll need to get a new battery, and try to make sure that the phone is placed back on its charger every night before you go to bed. This should allow the battery to receive a full charge each night to prevent full discharge and lengthen the life of your battery. I went through about 2 or 3 batteries once before I found this out. I'm sure that you'll find this helpful and it should save you a few bucks in not having to replace your battery as often. Please rate me accordingly, if it's not too much of a bother. Thanks and have a nice morning!

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Model purchased in USA and installed in India.

Only stupids buy cordless phone from USA. India uses ETSI DTMF standard for Caller ID which is not supported by any cordless phone sold in USA. It is about time you trash your worthless instrument in the dumpster.

Uniden cordless phone caller id quit working

Using the Caller ID and Redial Lists
Caller ID (CID) is a service available from your telephone provider that shows the phone number (and sometimes the caller's name) of incoming calls. Contact your telephone provider for more information.
Caller ID list

Redial list

When a call comes in, the phone displays the number and name (if available) of the caller.
The phone saves the information for the last 30 received calls to the

CID list.
When it's in standby, the handset shows how many calls came in since the last time you checked the CID list.

Each handset remembers the last 5 numbers you dialed on it. The redial list is separate for each handset.

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.

Caller id is not working in my cordless phone. Instead of number of a caller, "Incoming Call" is showing. Please help me

Caller ID on landline phones relies on signals from the telephone service provider. Some companies charge extra if you wish to enable the service, others include it automatically, so you need to check with them first.

Even if you have caller ID enabled, callers can choose to withhold their number. Large companies which make lots of outgoing calls (especially cold callers) often have their service set to automatically withhold their number. In many countries, all other callers can choose to do so by prefixing all dialled numbers with a short code, e.g. in the UK it's 141. Mobile phone callers can usually alter a setting on their handset so that caller ID is withheld when making outgoing calls.

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.

Caller id

First you need to verify if the caller id does that to all incoming calls, showing numbers only, or if it only does that to only numbers stored in directory. If it does that to all incoming calls then you need to check manual to see if there a setting to allow both name and number of all incoming calls. Either way you need to make sure caller id functions allows both name /number on display.

Caller ID

Even at its factory defaults your Siemens handset should be showing the caller id after the second ring. Look at your time and date on the phone, if they are not accurate then the caller id signal is not coming through since when activated caller id will not only give you the caller information, but it syncs with the telephone companys clock too. If I were there, I would take a phone that is known to have its caller id working and plug it in your line and see if caller id shows up on it. If it does show caller id, then there is something wrong with your Siemens base. If it does not, then your phone company dropped the ball and caller id is not activated. Then I would take the Siemens phone to another line (neighbor or friend) that has working caller id and plug my Siemens into it and see if it shows up. Doing all that will isolate your problem, I guarantee it.
