Question about Vtech 5.8GHz Cordless Phone with Digital Answering System
To set up the caller ID you need to call your phone provider and ask them to add caller is to your phone service. That is the only way to get the caller ID service.

SOURCE: Caller ID
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.

SOURCE: how to set time & date on phone
If you subscribe to Caller Display services, the first incoming call will set your phone's date and time automatically. Otherwise, here is how you do it.
1. press Options 2. Press * three times The display shows "Enter time/date?"
You may set both time and date or you may set either of them separately
TO SET BOTH 1. Press # when the display shows "*=Next #=Enter" 2. Wait for each prompt. You will be asked to enter: - the time - am or pm - SAVE - the month - the day, and - SAVE (Enter the hour, day, and month as two-digit numbers. For example, enter 02:15 for 2:15, 05 for May and 08 for the 8th of the month.)
TO SET ONLY THE DATE 1. Press # when the display shows "*=Next #=Enter" 2. Press * when the time appears 3. Enter the month and day when prompted. 4. Press SAVE
I have a question for you: Can you give me the specs of the AC adapter for this phone (usually written on the adapter)? 1. What is the OUTPUT in volts (V)? 2. What is the OUTPUT in milliamperes (mA)?
3. What is the polarity (i.e. is the + sign in the center of the jack or on the exterior)?
(The wall plug transformer has a diagram depicting two circles with the inner circle representing the center conductor. A line coming from the inner circle will show a minus (-) or a plus(+) symbol to let you know the polarity of the center conductor.)

All Panasonic display phones, both analog and digital 7xxx series phones support CID. It requires 5 or 6 program adjustments as outlined in the manual. With luck, you may be able to just turn it on in 406, but your area code needs to be set if you have 7 digit local dialing, you need to tell the system if you want CID to adjust the clock daily, SMDR display, etc.
The 1232_PG lists all the steps. If you don't have a manual, you really need to get one. Post back and we'll see what we can do.
