Panasonic dect 6.0 plus name and number of incoming calls aren't showing on phones. How can this be fixed?

Do name/number display on any other phones on that line?

If that is your only phone, try borrowing another with working call display from a friend or neighbor. If another phone doesn't display caller info, call your phone company - most charge extra to provide caller number ( and in some cases, another extra to add the name). Even if the features are included in your rate, it's possible they weren't turned on correctly.

Your Panasonic may also have a setting to show name or number - depending on the display size, you may have to pick one or the other.

Finally, some phones do not support exactly the same caller ID info that the phone company sends - I have seen some which displayed number instead of names and no name, just because the two pieces of equipment did not agree on the standard. Try your Panasonic on someone else's line with working Caller ID.

Caller id will not show on the display.

Did you change carriers? A lot of the VoIP carriers like vonage and magic jack will only give you the telephone number on caller id, but not the name.

I have magic jack now and they call that "caller id", but having moved from a carrier that had name attachment i assumed all caller id's had name and phone number both...but not so

Caller ID does not display name on Nortel phone

Cell phones do not send caller name, so create a Speed Dial entry for that number with the name you want to see. When a call arrives from that number, the system will show the name you have programmed.

Caller name is not see my display

Have u setup fone to show names calling?

If you have, good chance caller is withholding name/number.

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.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
