If you have the Caller iD service on your plan, and your phone is filled with your contacts, then the two work automatically and calls coming in on your list will be displayed as you entered them. Calls without any info will only display the most basic of info they allow like just a name, or just a number. Sometimes neither if they choose to block Caller iD. Caller iD is a cellular service and not a hardware function. Check with your service provider.
Does the LCD not work at all? or do you mean that it doesn't display Caller ID information? If the LCD is completely dead, you'll need to get the phone repaired. On the other hand, if it's just the Caller ID that's on the fritz, try this: unplug the base from the power socket; remove any batteries in both the base and the handset; wait one minute; plug the base back into the wall and replace all batteries. This will reset the Caller ID so it works again. (Depending on the phone you may or may not lose settings and memorized numbers.) If this doesn't help, the problem will require a professional repair.
The source of my caller ID not displaying was a faulty ADSL filter. For some reason my ADSL filter blocked the caller id information - but worked fine otherwise. When I changed the filter the caller ID worked fine again.
I don't think the problem is the FSK vs. DTMF. The manual even states that the caller ID is generally received after the second ring. This is true in America. I lived in India for four months and I never ran into the problem there so... I just can't say how your provider sends the caller ID. It may be that the line is being interfered with. Do you have a DSL line attached to the same device. If so make sure that there is a filter between you phone and its connection.
I am assuming that you tested your line with the other equipment connected to the same location. You may want to reduce the problem to the simplest configuration by connecting directly to the line only no other equipment. If it works add the other equipment until the caller ID stops again. Then you know what is interfering. If you have a monitor set you could listen to the DTMF being sent make sure it is coming between the first and second ring. It is audible if it is there. If you are answering on the first ring you will not see caller ID you have to wait till after the second ring then you should see it, If BSNL is sending the same as American systems. Good luck Z
If your cable service is transmitting the caller id data, and the phone has that feature and is working properly, you should be getting the caller id after the second ring. The only way to confirm where your problem lies (the phone or the cable service) is to take your phone to a regular phone line with caller id and see if it works, and vise versa. My guess would be that the Panasonic phone is working fine on a regular phone line of which it was designed to do, and the problem is in the cable carrier not conforming to industry standards. But I may be wrong.
How to get the caller ID to work on the additional GE DECT phone handsets. You must follow these steps in the exact order :
#1 - unplug the base phone
#2 - unplug the telephone line from the base phone
#3 - remove the battery packs from the phones
#4 - wait 10 minutes. reverse the order when assembling. Put battery packs in phones, put the telephone line back in the base phone and lastly plug all phones back in.
It takes about another 10 minutes after that before all phone handsets start recognizing caller ID.
