SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I have call waiting and caller ID through my phone

You're right, at least one of them should. You should contact your telephone company and ensure you have Caller ID while on Call Waiting service (CIDCW) - it's not always the same as just Caller ID. Sometimes they'll want even more money. :)

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.

I have caller id service with my phone company; Why does my Radio Shack heavy duty wall phone with caller id display all rows of 8's in the caller id area?

It's radio shack... kidding, depending upon the age of it, the lcd black/grey display may have gone bad... from dropping or age or defect.

I just received KX-T7730 phone with an LCD screen and it is not showing the caller ID # that is dialing in. It only displays CO 1. The previous phone similar to KX-T7730 shows the caller id #. So how can I...

The one who can show the caller ID when someone call is the caller only. He/she can set to hide his/her number ID in their phone so we can't see it. We can't force to see this caller ID, but if this calls disturbed you, you can install call blocker and only allow certain incoming call to be recieved.

Hope his help and rate please.

Caller id

try pressing the transfer button when the phone is ringing (without lifting the handset) - it should work through a cycle of displays until the phone number is displayed.

Caller ID

Does this happen for all incoming calls? Some phones have their caller ID hidden by their network service.

Caller id

Unfortunately just adding caller ID to your phone line will not work with many business phone systems, especially older systems.

You can have this phone on one of several different Toshiba phone systems. The system must have caller ID equipment installed and programmed correctly for caller ID information to be shown on your phone's display.

Caller ID information is transmitted between the first and second ring. With business phone systems the system itself needs to collect this information and then pass it along to any phones that are programmed to ring at any given time.
