Question about GE 27938 Cordless Phone

Open Question

Missing CLI My problem is: when somebody calls me on the display I have to see his phone number but instead I see my number. For example: If my friend's number is 123456789 and my number is 987654321 on the display I am seeing 987654321 instead 123456789. Do you have any ideas how to fix that?

CLIP not working in siemens gigaset al140

The display should indicate what's going on with CLIP, and why it's not showing up.
You should either see an icon of a BELL, "WITHHELD" or "UNAVAILABLE".
BELL = you haven't requested CLI from your carrier
WITHHELD = if caller has withheld CLI from carrier
UNAVAILABLE = CLI is not requested.

Do you see one of these three on the display when you receive a call?

Other than one of those reasons, I'm not sure what your issue might be.

Does the prostar 816 plus have caller id?

It does have caller ID however you need to check that your call carrier is supplying inbound CLI. check on your handset that it is set to show this by pressing TRANSFER 119 then use the volume key to set it to show name or number first. check out it has loads of Samsung DCS programming and training videos, I posted one as a example for you

Caller id displaying DID's

It sounds coincidental. You should contact your vendor as I think there is something in the programming that's changed. Either in the set's class of service or in the trunks class of service.

Siemens gigaset E365. I have just purchased this phone let it charge, registered to base. I pay my telecom provider for caller ID - my previous now tired Phillips dect showed numbers of callers even names...

Does it say any of these on the display
Extern. call -means not arranged with service provider. Contact your service provider.
Withheld- Caller is withholding caller ID information.
Unavailable -your phone is not setup to display caller is with your provider.Contact them.

In addition your phone provider must support CLIP,CLI and CNIP. Confirm with your provider.

How to do check my missed call log

A Panasonic TDx system has 2 types of call logs, one personal for the set, and one for the ICD group.

Pick a spare button, press PROG, the button, and dial 54 STORE.

If you had incoming: 00x on your display, that button will light and you can now press it to see who called. Your Navigator UP/DONW key will step you forward or backward through the log. The LEFT/RIGHT key will display the 4 lines of the display if you're not using a 7636 phone.

If you want to see incoming calls to a particular ICD group, pick another button, and dial 54 plus the ICD group number. For example, I used 100 as my ICD group (now 600 by default). I have 2 buttons, one logs my extension calls, one displays the system calls.

When a call comes in, the Selection button will toggle between the name and the number and if yuu're looking at missed calls, the date and time of the call. When you miss a call, the Indication button will light and you press it to view the Names of missed calls.

No CLI on my Philips CD130

I downloaded the CD130's manual and noticed that this problem was to do with my service provider.  I contacted them and confired that I needed to initalize the function via them.  So now I know!

OT8500 Onetel handset- It keeps saying that there are 4 new calls- however there are no messages and nothing else showing- how can i remove this?

It means you have 4 missed calls, like on a mobile. To get rid of them go to Call List (press the CLI/R button) and delete the number from the Call List or delete the Call List completely (press the menu button for thess options).
