I had this same problem. Unidens troubleshooting was terrible. I finally figured out what the problem was though. In the address book on the phone it only holds 100 phone numbers. If it is full, and someone calls it will not store the number. Erase some of the entries and see if it will work then. It needs a certain amount of space to hold the number. Hope this fix will work.

Using the Caller ID and Redial Lists Caller ID (CID) is a service available from your telephone provider that shows the phone number (and sometimes the caller's name) of incoming calls. Contact your telephone provider for more information. Caller ID list
When a call comes in, the phone displays the number and name (if available) of the caller.
The phone saves the information for the last 30 received calls to the
When it's in standby, the handset shows how many calls came in since the last time you checked the CID list.
Each handset remembers the last 5 numbers you dialed on it. The redial list is separate for each handset.
In the User's manual section 2-2 there's an alpabetic index for Caller-ID. It requires 2 buttons, a CID-Indicator and a CID-Select button. We usually put them as the top 2 buttons in a 773x series phone, but you'll have to pick 2 adjacent or similar CO buttons. You label them CID-I and CID-S. Then you program them for either 96 and 97 or 6 and 7. You also have to tell the programming that you are setting up the common CID if you use 96&7.
You need CID service from teoco, Caller ID capable circuit packs in your Norstar system and 2 parameters turned on in programming under "terminals a & sets" for each extension. Also the CID will only auto display on sets that have the ringing turned on for that line. (you can also program a display button..feature-811). I doubt it is the software version but to display it go into programming and step down through the menu from 'Terminals&Sets' 10 items to 'Maintenance' and press 'show' then show again at 'System Version' this will give you a display like "SP: 30DHC04 NAT". Hope this helps. Bill C. www.dyns-tech.us We also do remote programming on Nortel CICS and MICS so equipped
There is no such thing as correctly plugging an analog caller ID box into a digital phone line.
CID display comes from a TD-193 card mounted in the Key Service Unit and it only displays on Panasonic system display phones designed to work on a TD system. The only system that passes CID through to stations is a TA-824 and certain models of TDA-s that have special analog extension cards.
You can use the analog box, but you have to bring the line from in front of the system to the CID box.
These phones use a "Shared" memory, the CID information and the Phone book information share the same memory chip. If you clean out the caller ID data you should be able to load more numbers in the phone book. Since you have an 8885 I am assuming you have TCX800 or TCX905 handset(s), to clear the CID memory, Follow these steps:
