I have gone through the manual and have set the phone up but, still the
talking caller id does not work> Nor does the caller id.
Also when I call the phone it does not show that a call has come in?????
Please help as I have called twice to the support line and nothing.
Let me tell you know before you ask me: Yes I have removed the batteries and the adapter for one day to cool off??
When I set up the talking caller ID I first hit the SET/Store button then the up arrow. Then set/store #3 then set/store.
I have called the help line and the people on the other end treat me as if I am stupid??
Thanking you in advance for you assistance

The Star Talk Flash is a voice mail prduct. The caller ID feature is a phone system feature. If your system is a norstar CICS or a MICS the caller ID will work only if you have the caller ID capable central office circuit packs installed. Look on the card and see if the label has "CLID". If it dose there is also additional programming required for each set under.... terminals &sets/telco features/featue assignments/show line/caller ID...set:Y. You also have to program (under sets) /telco features/caller ID: Y.
You have to press "Menu" "#" then 1 6 2.
You can also just press menu and then scroll to talking caller id, select it and then choose to turn it off. Be sure to press "save" or the your choice will not be saved.

For the Handset, press [MENU], then scrol to "Initial setting", then press Select. Scroll to "Set base unit", press Select. Scroll to "Talk Caller ID", then press Select. Select "Off" or "On" by pressing up or down arrows.

Hi trinigirl, You should not have to do anything to make the caller id information come through. There is no programming to perform for the regular caller id identification on your display after the second ring (it takes at least one ring cycle for the digital information to pass through). Your model also has the talking caller id function, which will announce in English the callers name or a custom name you can prepare in the phone book of handset number 1. With all that said, you are not getting caller id showing after the second ring, then your phone is bad (which is pretty rare for this symptom), or your phone line still does not have caller id activated. To troubleshoot your problem you need another phone line with working caller id and/or a different phone that is known good to pass caller id. That way you can interchange the phones/lines to see if it is your line or your phone. My guess it is your line somehow, though I have fixed phones that won't pass caller id, but rarely. If it is your phone, try rebooting it, thats about all you can do short of sending it in for repair. Let me know how it goes. CG
