When I miss a call, I go to the callers button and the missed call comes up in the screen. When I hit Line 1 or 2 to return the call the phone puts a number 1 in front of the number and it does not work because it is not long distance. How can I stop it from putting the number 1 in front of the phone number I want to call back??

Re: Siemens 2520 gigaset base
You will need to customize your Call log settings to show which area code your located in so it will redial from the log properly. To do so, push Menu, then scroll to system settings, push select, then scroll to Area Codes, push select and specify the area code that you are in. If you need additional assistance, go to the link below which is the full manual on PDF, then go to page 48. Hope that helps. http://www.barclayent.com/manuals/Gigaset%202420%20Plus_guide.pdf

Does it say any of these on the display Extern. call -means not arranged with service provider. Contact your service provider. Withheld- Caller is withholding caller ID information. Unavailable -your phone is not setup to display caller is with your provider.Contact them.
In addition your phone provider must support CLIP,CLI and CNIP. Confirm with your provider.
If you had a storm, and the only handset that works shows line in use, then your base has gone bad and needs repair. The reason the phones are flashing base 1 or something to that effect is because they don't see the base anymore, which typically means no phones will see your base, so its odd that one phone is actually seeing the base. Either way, you can try re-registering the phones to the base, but if you get the line in use after they register (if they will register), then your base is bad. If they won't register, your base is bad. For additional assistance you can go to www.cordlessrepair.com
Its an easy fix, you need to tell the phone what area code your in. Push menu, go to system settings, enter your pin, scroll forward to "area codes" press enter twice, enter your area code and push enter to save. Now the phone knows where your located and wont add the 1 and the area code. CG
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.
Hello, Almost never is it the handset that is bad when those symptoms occur. It sounds as if your base has gotten hit by a power surge and won't boot (the handset now can't "talk to" the base and its always searching for it). Most people report this after a storm has passed through their area. You can try re-registering the handset to the base, but unfortunately it probably won't work, sorry. You can order the base only and register your handset to the replacement base when you get it. To order a replacement base using google, search for Siemens Cordless Repair and click the first non sponsored link. Good Luck
