Question about Panasonic Phones
My Panasonic talking caller IDs says "Number available" even though the phone book has the number and a corresponding name. I live in India and for example if the number is 98450 99345 corresponding to a name say "papa" in the phone book, it just displays the number and says "Number available".
I have connected a FSK device in the line to the instrument which helps decode the incoming caller id so the instrument gets the number. If I remove the device, the telephone does not see any incoming number.
Can you help?
SOURCE: Caller ID not working
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

SOURCE: caller id
Caller ID in the USA uses the FSK standard. For the most part, caller ID 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 aways use shop number 266 near gate 5, they seem to be a little kinder to foreigners as far as the "final price") and purchased an DTMF to FSK convertor. My US phones now show caller ID information, although using US number seperations ### - ### - ####. I paid R500 but you could probably get it for around R400 if you are willing to put in the time bargaining. It looks like they are also available on Indian Ebay.
Mine says UST001B. It looks like these are low volume items because they stuck the components into a box marked "DSL Splitter" It works to convert the caller ID as advertised.

SOURCE: DTMF-FSK converter
hello, I came here by accident. Anyway. I would suggest buying a FSK to DTMF converter. It should cost about 30 euros. Or buying a phone which understands both protocols. i.e. Panasonic.
Good luck, Marcel, The Netherlands.
