We switched to Vonage, and now the talking caller ID will not *******. I've turned it on, I've turned it off, I've unplugged and plugged back in, I want to throw it out into the road and watch an 18-wheeler smash it into tiny pieces.
Anybody know how to make this piece o'junk stop with the talky ID?!!
And why would it just now start this up?
I dont know what your talking about i love the talking caller id on my panasonic lol its kewl like im somewhere in the house and i just hear who is calling dont even have to go unstairs or inside to answer but anyways. Theres 2 options. One is when you go to the menu(Thats only for the handset). You also have to go to the menu and then the initial settings and look for an option somewhere there like base settings or something

How do I turn off the Talking Caller ID on my phone?
To turn off Talking Caller ID on the base;
Press [MENU] [#] [*]   
Press the [?] or the [?] button to turn the base Caller ID on or off.
Press [ SAVE ]
To turn off Talking Caller ID on one of the handsets;
Press [MENU] [#]   .
Press the [?] or the [?] button to turn the handset Caller ID on or off.
Press [ SAVE ]
Note that the base and each handset are programmed individually.
Check your Sim in another phone to confirm , if there is no CLIP then the service provider has barred you and must get in touch. Also is possible that the phone has hung up because there are errors in the software. So to reset remove the battery and the memory card from the phone. Using your PC , scan the memory card for any corrupt files or media files with virus- it is possible when they are downloaded from unsafe sites. If so remove or format the card. Now replace the card and battery and switch on the phone. If the phone hangs up then it is confirmed that the software is corrupt and will need a reinstallation. Seeking help from the authorized service /support centre is most ideal. Take estimate and decide.
