Question about GE 29385GE1 Corded Phone

No caller ID information for GE Caller ID phone ( Model # 29385GE1)

I am Citizen of India. I purchased this GE phone in USA. When I connected this phone in India, It does not show caller ID information. However, Caller ID information works fine on another phone which I purchased in India.  I am a telecom engineer. For me it seems some kind of protocol mis-match. In US it may be a different protocol for caller & in India it may be a differnt protocol.

 

My question is what is Caller Id protocol for analog phones in USA ?

 

Regards

I must have gotten your unit. Mine did work ONCE after it had been installed for about a week. But it never worked again and we pitched it. Buy something else.

Caller ID is not working


Hello Samiran mandal, here is a solution.I purchased one cordless telephone (Siemens Gigaset) in Germany. I also had the same problem, caller-id did not work. I purchased this telephone because we can set different ringtones for different caller groups. But, if caller-id doesn't work, this feature also doesn't work. I had gone through internet and finally found that CA electronics, Bangalore has it and got it through courier (I live in Pondicherry). It worked flawlessly for two years. Then it stopped working. For 'no reason' I ordered for a 'caller-id' unit on ebay for Rs.75/- (+ Rs.75 shipping). I just got the unit and fixed it to my line. Very very surprisingly, my cordless telephone is now showing caller info. This is a real surprise to me. By the way, caller-id unit is "Eurotel" make, DTMF/FSK caller-id. I feel this is very nice solution. The 'caller-id' unit is nice (backlit display) and also there is no need of converter for using the caller-id feature of your foreign telephone. I connected caller-id between the line and telephone. That's all. Enjoy.

After installing new batteries I have lost my time and date on the window display


The date and time is supplied with the caller ID information from your phone service provider. When you get a call, the date and time will be set. (If you don't have caller ID, there's no way to set the date and time otherwise. I've always wondered who came up with such a silly design.)

Model purchased in USA and installed in India. Caller id is subscribed and other phones shows the calling number but this phone KX-TG6431 does not


Only stupids buy cordless phone from USA. India uses ETSI DTMF standard for Caller ID which is not supported by any cordless phone sold in USA. It is about time you trash your worthless instrument in the dumpster.

Were those other instruments purchased in India? The problem is that the U.S .uses a different"signal" to send caller ID than India.

CALLER ID NOT DISPLAYED.DISPLAYS EXTERNAL CALL


Caller ID in the USA uses the FSK standard. For the most part, callerID in India uses DTMF (although I have heard of some FSK usage).

I am currently living in New Delhi and have an Airtel home phone line.My switch uses DTMF. I went to the Palika electronics bazaar (I awaysuse shop number 266 near gate 5, they seem to be a little kinder toforeigners as far as the "final price") and purchased an DTMF to FSKconvertor. My US phones now show caller ID information, although usingUS number seperations ### - ### - ####. I paid R500 but you couldprobably get it for around R400 if you are willing to put in the timebargaining. It looks like they are also available on Indian Ebay.

Mine says UST001B. It looks like these are low volume items becausethey stuck the components into a box marked "DSL Splitter" It works toconvert the caller ID as advertised.

US phones use Bellcore FSK caller id. India uses DTMF caller id. Buy a DTMF- FSK converter at a telecom shop.

Caller ID not working in India


I too purchased an Uniden phone for India. Everything except the caller ID works fine. The caller ID wont work as the technology used in India is different. Try purchasing a FSK to DTMF converter or a separate caller ID box.
