Re: coller ID Inoperative

Here is the tip directly from the manufacture vtech. Tip 1 of 1 Caller ID and Call Waiting ID are subscription services, available from most local telephone service providers. You must subscribe to these services in order for the features to work on your phone. Contact your local telephone service provider for more information. In addition, your caller must be calling from an area that supports caller ID. Both you and your caller?s telephone service provider must use compatible caller ID systems. Caller ID and Call Waiting ID may not be available for every call. Common reasons are incompatibilities between your and your caller?s service, transmission errors and answering calls before the ID data is received. They state that if you have further problems, to contact customer support at 1-800-595-9511. Also, who is your phone service provider? And who is the manufacture of the old phone? If this does not help, please post further. Also, please rate this solution through fix-it. Thank you.

Just bought KX-TGD225 phone system and can't get the caller Id function to work even though I subscribe to caller ID with the phone company. The talking caller ID works but no display on the phone

Please call your phones service provider, they may charge for this service. Just because the phone is capable of caller ID function doesn't mean it is a free service.

I have a PRI and am asking the same question. I do know that you do have to go into programming to set this up. You also have to have a COIB card installed for this to work for standard Direct Inward Dial lines.

I just purchased a slim caller id phone. The caller id is not working. The phone company advised that the service is connected.

If the phone company has got everything in place, it means the driver ic that controls the LCD is defective. Since it is new I recommend taking back for exchange.

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.*

Can't display caller id info

Does CID work on ANY phone in the system? The reason I ask is because prior to issue 7, a Caller ID card had to be inserted into the trunk card. If yours is older, it may not have the card.

there really shouldn't be anything to set up. if you have another caller id box or phone, try plugging that in to the phone jack first checking for dial tone, then the caller id. if neither are working, call your phone company. if only the caller id is still not working, ask your phone company if it is activated.
hope this helps.

Caller ID doesn't display and phone rings 1 time then stops

The Uniden TRU9XXX series has a high level of handset compatibility between bases. Depending on the handsets you bought to go with your 9480, you may be able to buy another model in the series and use the old handsets with the new model. Alternatively, you could buy another 9480 here (the -2 on the end of your model number just means that it came with an extra handset).

Before you do that, though, it might pay to hook up a regular (corded) caller ID-enabled phone to the line and see what happens there when you call. If it works properly, go buy your new phone. However, if you see the same behavior there as with the Uniden, chances are that the problem is not with the phones. Possible other causes could include a fax machine, modem, or other device in-line with the phone; a defective piece of equipment hooked up elsewhere in your house; etc. If nothing obvious applies, you might want to give the phone company another call--just because they couldn't find a problem on their end doesn't mean one doesn't exist.

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.
