I have the Innovage corded phone. I have caller ID service in my home and it works on my other telephone. I have been unable to unable to see the LCD display unless I pick up the phone. Therefore I cannot begin to set up the phone for the talking caller ID, date or anything. Nothing shows up when I receive calls. I cannot set the date or any of the features. The directions say to start by pressing the delete button and pushing the up and down keys to choose what you want from the menu. Please help.

Caller ID (caller identification, CID), also called calling line identification (CLID) or calling number identification (CNID), is a telephone service, available in analog and digital phone systems and most Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) applications, that transmits a caller's number to the called party's telephone equipment during the ringing signal, or when the call is being set up but before the call is answered. Where available, caller ID can also provide a name associated with the calling telephone number. The information made available to the called party may be displayed on a telephone's display or on a separately attached device.
Yes you can get stand alone caller ID units, they simply plug into the main line in phone jack. BTW, If you have a modem in your PC you can also then use it as a telephone "anything" Call center, answer-phone, voice-mail, and of course Caller ID. A lot of the software is freeware available on the 'net for download and install.
If you have digital telephone with cable. First thing you should do is contact the billing department of your service provider. Make sure you are in billing for caller id. If you are let them know you are not receiving service you are paying for. Have them check your number in the switch. Which is the system that allocates each call that is made to and from your number. If this feature is not activated properly in the switch you might be paying for a service that is not properly activated. If all is correct with service provider. Try using another phone that has the caller id feature just to make sure it's not the actual phone. If both phones still doesn't display caller id. You should have your service provider send out a technician to troubleshoot your home telephone lines to make sure all phone jacks and telephone lines are secure and corrosion free, and have them verify service while there. You should also ask about a credit for the time the service was activated until the time the service actually worked.

there is a "special feature" for privacy that can be turned on or off...when on it is supposed to keep others from eavesdropping - but it actually will not let other phones work...turn that off (settings 1 is for date, go to settings8) and it will complement your other phones and work.!!
