Question about GE 27938 Cordless Phone

1 Answer

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?

SOURCE: 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.

Some one using a spoofed number. There are various programs that can be used to show a fictitious number on caller ID. 123456789 is not a valid number.

How can i figure out what the phone number is, jusy using the sim card

No you can't. But you could try phoning another number and it will display the number you are calling from. As long as CLI is turned on

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.

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.

After it was unlocked and working on the fido netwrok, most of my incoming calls are displayed as unknown caller, even with the saved numbers

You will need to contact your Network provider and tell them that you are missing CLI Presentation. They will then send you "Text updates" which should sorted out your caller I.D.

No number or contact name on incoming call.

Hi, I had the same problem few days back. I am using Nokia N95 with a Vodafone service. Any call I receive simply showed "Call" and on checking the call log, says "No Number". this problem is not with the phone, but with the network. I checked with the Vodafone customer associate, I got to know I din't submit my documents to them which is required on an yearly basis and so my phone had this problem. So if u r also having same problem as I had, try contacting ur network service associates and they could help you fixing the problem.

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.

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).

Sony Ericsson K610i mobile phone

I had the same problem... it was solved for me by going into
Menu -> Calls -> More -> Delete All

I think the problem was that the missed and other calls were stored in the provider's server... and deleting each entry from the list was not deleting them from there, but instead just deleting the entry from my phone.. anyway... now it saves and shows the missed calls.

I hope this helps...
