Caller ID is only sent to devices plugged directly into the "PHONE" jack on the back of the 21518. I'm guessing your TV DVR or Cable Box is connected directly to the real phone line. Maybe you need an RJ-11 splitter so you can plug both your phone AND the cable box in to the "PHONE" output of the 21518. I appologize if you've already tried this.

First off what company do you use for your home phone and who do you use for your cell phone. I don't believe that you should be seeing caller ID on your tv from your cell phone. That is not what the bluetooth does.
Thank you,

I need a power adapter for telephone base for model 30524


Not a problem. Take the base unit with you to Radio Shack and they will get you a proper replacement. (The numbers on the plug in to the unit will say how many volts Direct Current are required to operate is properly and the tag underneath will also state how many milliWatts of power are required at that voltage.) The key is buying the proper plug in end that fits the socket. Radio Shack has units with several socket tips so you may select the proper one. Make sure the polarity of the socket plug you use matches the wire polarity... the stripe on one side of the power cord is the + side on the socket tip.

Hi, one of our Call Center workers cannot hear the ringing phone when she has the headset onWhat's your problem?


The ring from the telephone is picked up by the internal microphone on the HL10 Handset Lifter, typically for most phones, the lifter sits directly over the speaker grill on the telephone where the sound comes out. For telephones that curve out on the left side and don't have a straight edge, there is an accessory called a "Ring Detector" which is used. Here's a link:

HL10 Nortel Adapter Kit - 46780-01

If the internal mic on the lifter has gone out, you can plug the ring detector into the handset lifter and just stick the ring detector over the speaker grill to pick up the ring. Plugging this into the lifter will bypass the internal mic, this accessory would have come with your HL10 lifter. You can also check the ring volume on the telephone, and you can also try adjusting the ring tone on the phone (sometimes it will pick up one ring tone better than another). Here is a link below if you need to order a new ring detector:

If you are using a Cisco phone you could probably plug the headset base into the phone. If it is not you will still need your lifter.

I have a plantronics explorer 220 bluetooth headset, and a nokia 6500classic. My telephone do not find the headset bluetooth.It is this 2 items compatible?


Check that both devices have activated Bluetooth connectivity. Check that the distance between the two devices is not over 33'. Make sure that the Plantronics bluetooth Explorer is not hidden on your phone. Sometimes the bluetooth activations are not easily accessed. Here is a link to the Explorer 220 pairing instructions for you to try.

I use the handset lifter for the phone I have (Polycom SE-225). When am sitting at my desk neat the phone, I speak anything above a low normal into the bluetooth headset, like when I am laughing or people...


Unfortunately no. The phone ringer has to be a certain volume for the lifter microphone to pick up the ringing vibrations. If you put it to low, you will not be alerted to the incoming calls. When you're at your desk and can see the incoming calls, maybe then you can lower the telephone ringer volume for some relief.

GE 21518 Celluar Gateway won't allow use of touch tone menus.


This is the "nature of the beast" with this unit. I have found the same issue. It seems to vary based on which cell phone you use it with. The Moto Droid I had briefly seemed to allow the DTMF tones to work pretty well. Otherwise, this is a great product. You'll just have to grab the actual phone to enter the tones. :(

There is an undocumented solution to link difficult devices. Instead of pushing ad releasing, hold either button down until you get a FAST BLINK and then try linking again.
