Question about Uniden Cordless Phone

1 Answer

I have call waiting and caller ID through my phone company. I have two Uniden phones--EXA17980 and EX15160 cordless phones. Both phones should display the caller ID while I am on the phone with another call. I do have a display if I am not on the phone. This does not happen. How do I display caller ID while on call waiting?

You're right, at least one of them should. You should contact your telephone company and ensure you have Caller ID while on Call Waiting service (CIDCW) - it's not always the same as just Caller ID. Sometimes they'll want even more money. :)

Do I have to pay the phone company for caller ID? Or does my phone have it automatically. I have a Uniden EX13246 2.4GHz cordless.


The EXI3246 is capable of displaying the caller ID information, and automatically will do so if the information is present. However, most phone companies charge extra to provide this information.

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.*

The phones have caller id and it works except not in the call waiting. How to I activate the call waiting-caller id?


You'll need to call your phone company. (Qwest, BellSouth, SBC, it depends on where you live)

Call Waiting ID (or CID-on-Call-Waiting) is a separate feature, possibly with an extra monthly charge, but possibly it just needs a free activation

Caller id


Some phones are not equiped to pick up call waiting caller id. check the box or look up your model number on the uniden site. The call waiting caller id only shows up on the phone that is in use at the time of the call.

Make sure that you have caller id service from your phone company. If you do not have a different phone with caller id borrow a working one from a friend and see if it shows up on a different phone. Let a phone ring at least twice to give caller id time to work. If a different phone does not show the call information call your service provider.

Caller id


This is a feature from your phone company you may have to pay extra for. Caller ID information is normally transmitted just after the first ring. When you are using call waiting there is no ring.
