Re: area code

Here is a link to the site containing a pdf manual link and this is an excerpt for you :

Long Distance calls and Area Code Setting/Cancellation
While the present Caller ID information is displayed, pressing */tone/< will place
or remove the prefix "1" in the display to set the call for a long distance call, or
pressing #/> will set or cancel an area code (see page 30).
Storing Caller ID messages in the Phonebook
Messages shown in the Caller ID list can be stored in the phonebook. The phone
number and name of the party on the Caller ID list can be stored in memory.
1) When the phone is in standby mode, select the Caller ID message to be stored.
Then press the STORE soft key on the base or the EDIT soft key on the handset.
From the handset, then select E D I T ?. S t o r e / E d i t N a m e appears. If the Caller ID
message is already stored in memory, you will hear a beep and T h i s d a t a i s
a l r e a d y s t o r e d ! ! appears. The number will not be stored.
2) To complete the setting, follow the steps 3-8 in "Phonebook (Storing Phone
Numbers, Names, Distinctive Rings, and Speed Dial)" on pages 42-43.

What city or state has area code 333

There is no area code +1 333 in North America (USA, Canada, etc.). It does not exist. Google Voice erroneously assigned some numbers in area code 333, but it is not a real area code. Country code +33 is France, and a number beginning +33 3 is in the northeast part of France. If you see a number on your caller ID that shows up as 333-???-????, it could be: * bogus caller ID data (telemarketer/etc. sending random fake digits)

When a received call comes in the number shows 1-402 then the number.on call back the phone dials all 11 numbers,then i get a recording from windstream that says i dont need to dial the 1 and area code....

The caller ID in your area is set up to show the 1 plus the area code although not every area has yet to require you to dial the 1 before the number. In the near future it's possible you will have to dial the 1 even if you're calling a local number. I know of no way to change the phone settings in order to remove the 1 in the caller id. Unfortunately it looks like your only option will be to dial the number directly without the 1. Good luck!

Area Code not showing on incoming calls. Sakar HT44ID-10

Not all systems require the area code. In fact if I am calling a number in my area from the ID caller & it has the area code shown, I must hit the pound key to erase the area code to make a connection. If it shows only the area code & it is a long distance call, I hit the star key to add a one in front of the existing number.

Not showing the area code when people call

If they're calling from the same area code that's set in your "Global Setup", then the area code won't show.

Where I live, you have to dial the area to call them back, so I set our area code in the phone's Global Setup to 000.

That worked and now I can scroll through caller ID, see the whole 10-digit number, and return all calls (w/area code) with no problem.

Hope that helps!

It does not display the area code on the caller ID

Somewhere, you told it your area code. Take that part out or put a different one in and it will show 10 digits.

Caller ID

Even at its factory defaults your Siemens handset should be showing the caller id after the second ring. Look at your time and date on the phone, if they are not accurate then the caller id signal is not coming through since when activated caller id will not only give you the caller information, but it syncs with the telephone companys clock too. If I were there, I would take a phone that is known to have its caller id working and plug it in your line and see if caller id shows up on it. If it does show caller id, then there is something wrong with your Siemens base. If it does not, then your phone company dropped the ball and caller id is not activated. Then I would take the Siemens phone to another line (neighbor or friend) that has working caller id and plug my Siemens into it and see if it shows up. Doing all that will isolate your problem, I guarantee it.

Caller ID Stopped Working - Think the phone needs to be reset?

Not sure why this worked, but I went to the Menu and the Set Area Code selection. The area code setting was blank, so I entered my area code and saved it. Caller ID started to work again. As a test, I went back to the Set Area Code selection and deleted the area code and saved it. It is currently still working. Seems really odd, but it worked for me.
