Dear All

In Nehru Place you get a small attachement for Rs. 250 - Rs. 350 which when connected to the pstn line will display CID on imported phones. On my GE 2.4GHZ phone i am able to see the called number - But no time stamp. I am told there is another version of the attachemnet abvailable which stores the time stamp in the memory. I am not sure but CID works.

SOURCE: Caller ID is not working in India.

For people who have purchased cordless phone in usa and caller id is not working they should purchase fsk to dtmf converter at any local phone shop and caller id will start working.

Here is the article on various frequency used by various countries for caller id.

Hope this will help you out.

Detailed Product Description

There are 3 major caller ID specifications in the world: DTMF, ETSI FSK and Bellcore FSK. When users buy a foreign telephone devices(such as cordless phone, fax machine or computer telephony interface), may encounter the problems of non-match for caller ID standard. This will cause the device unable to display the caller ID. EX220 can solve this problem easily. This product can receive all 3 kinds of caller ID format, and convert to FSK(Bellcore or ETSI selectable) to match foreign telephone's standard.
EX220 has a rechargeable battery inside the device, during idle status, it gets power from the telephone line and recharge the battery, so no need to use or replace battery. Just plug one end to telephone line, and the other to the telephone device.
For example, if you live in Netherlands, Saudi or India, the caller ID standard is DTMF. You purchased a cordless caller ID phone from US(which uses Bellcore FSK standard), or from Germany(which uses ETSI FSK standard). You won't be able to use the caller ID feature. In this case, just get one EX220 and connect it between the telephone line and the cordless phone, your cordless caller ID phone will display the caller's number immediately.
Remark:
1. Telephone sets for UK and Japan standard are not applicable.
2. In some countries, users must subscribe to Telecom for caller ID service

Feature List
Caller ID Format Conversion --- Convert 3 kinds of caller ID(DTMF, Bellcore FSK or ETSI FSK) to ETSI FSK or Bellcore FSK(selectable)
Date/Time Stamp --- The DTMF caller ID doesn't content date/time stamp. User can set up clock of EX201, so each call will be sent with actual date and time stamp
Area Code Setting --- User can set up the area code, so the dial back feature can easily applied
Rechargeable battery powered by line --- Just connect to the telephone line, the built-in rechargeable battery can get power from the telephone line, no need any external battery nor power supply

News
Now, Multi-Line caller ID converter is available.

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.
