When saving a contact to your phone book for some reason you have to save the number with a "1" in front of the area code and number or it will not register as the contact calling. I would save a number and have them call or send text but it just kept coming up as the number itself and not their name. I changed the number with the 1 in front of it and it worked just fine.

Using the Caller ID and Redial Lists Caller ID (CID) is a service available from your telephone provider that shows the phone number (and sometimes the caller's name) of incoming calls. Contact your telephone provider for more information. Caller ID list
When a call comes in, the phone displays the number and name (if available) of the caller.
The phone saves the information for the last 30 received calls to the
When it's in standby, the handset shows how many calls came in since the last time you checked the CID list.
Each handset remembers the last 5 numbers you dialed on it. The redial list is separate for each handset.
The one who can show the caller ID when someone call is the caller only. He/she can set to hide his/her number ID in their phone so we can't see it. We can't force to see this caller ID, but if this calls disturbed you, you can install call blocker and only allow certain incoming call to be recieved.
Thanks for using FixYa. I think you have stored more than 100 Caller ID messages and hence the caller ID is not showing on Uniden Tru8888.In the following cases the caller ID will not be shown-
If you answer a call before the Caller ID message is received (for example, before the second ring), the Caller ID message will not appear.
When the call is received via a telephone company that does not offer Caller ID service, the caller’s phone number and name does not appear. (This includes some international calls.)
When the call is via a private branch exchange (PBX), the caller's phone number and name may not appear.
You may receive any one of the following messages:
When a private name is received; Private Name
When a private number is received; Private Number
When a unknown name is received; Unknown Name
When a unknown number is received; Unknown Number
When invalid data is received; Incomplete Data
The Caller ID list stores information for incoming calls - even unanswered calls. You can store up to 100 Caller ID messages and phonebook entries (including Speed Dials) for each handset and the base. You can view the Caller ID list through the handset or base during a call or when the phone is in standby mode.
Memory locations for Caller ID messages and Phonebook entries (including Speed Dials) are common, you can store up to all 100 entries for each handset and the base. Caller ID messages are not stored when you have 100 phonebook entries. When you have stored a total of 100 phonebook entries and Caller ID messages, the oldest Caller ID message is overwritten.

Hello, I had the same problem, but i figured out how to get the callers
id/information. On the main page select Call Center>>Call
History>> SIM1(or whichever you are using)>> and select
either the Missed/Dialed/Received calls. Lets choose Dialed Calls for
now. Select a phone number that you recognize>>select
OK>>Options>>Save to Phonebook. In here you will create a
new contact. Make sure you delete this old contact information from
your phone book. (so you don't have doubles if already saved to your
contact list). Now you can go to your main menu again and select the
phone book option. Select the contact you have created and add a photo
and ring tone you like. Now when you get a call you get their photo and
rign tone. For sms you get only their name, but thats good enough for
