Had a similar issue with a brand new DECT2035 uniden phone, displaying incoming call not caller ID.
Checked my old uniden phone, and it was receiving CID. So I connected my DECT2035 to that line and then lo and behold I got my CID. After further investigation I found that CID on my dect phone wont work if its using a shared filter (ie. adsl/phone splitter). Had to find an unfiltered splitter and then just put a phone filter (that I got with my adsl modem) onto the line that is directly connecting the phone. and then WOOHOO I have caller ID.
Hope this helps you... I got my wife a little cranky over this one cos it took me over an hour and a half to try and sus this one out =)

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.
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.

If the caller ID in displaying "Incoming call" either you have not subscribed to the service (caller ID to be pushed to your phone) or you are using a US type phone in UK type countries. There is also a possibility of Caller ID memory in your phone full, in case it does not overwrite last records by new ones. Vishal
Make sure that you have caller id service from your phone company. If you do not have a different phone with caller id borrow a working one from a friend and see if it shows up on a different phone. Let a phone ring at least twice to give caller id time to work. If a different phone does not show the call information call your service provider.
This means the person who is calling you is hiding his number from caller IDs. There is no problem with your caller ID. if you try and call your phone from a mobile phone and you type #31# and then your phone's number you will see that the number of your mobile will not be displayed. (#31# service must be provided by your mobile company)
