Question about GE 28111 Cordless Phone

2 Answers

MODEL 28031 The caller ID display on my phone doesn't work right. The display looks like the middle of the numbers and names are not showing. I can barely make out who is calling or what number. I took out the battery and put it back in but that still didn't help.

    After talking on the phone with speaker on, the phone goes dead and says "Searching"...It is very frustruating!!!!!!!! to say the least

  • Anonymous Jun 30, 2008

    display on 2 of 3 handsets is "garbled" -- on one, top part of display is missing, on another middle is missing; makes it nearly impossible to read. Third handset is still ok -- changed battery from "good" handset to other with no improvement.

    I have the same problem, caller ID on both Phones not working, one you can not read at all, the other only by guessing at the numbers and names. Tried a new battery (over $18) still not working

    I feel a phone should last more than 15 months, this was a gift and now I know why I don't buy GE products. Being told to replace the phone was not something I planned on doing. What a response!!!!

THese peice of $hit phones do this to me as well the only thing i could do to resolve it.....was to remove the battery and reinstall it but this doesnt always work a few of my diffrent models from GE do this and im not particularly happy about it... I would recommend not buying products from ge again... because they make the products fail so you will buy new ones (so we cant use the same phone for 10 years)

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

Uniden cordless phone caller id quit working


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



Redial 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

CID list.
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.

Since CID display to the phone comes from the Panasonic phone SYSTEM, you might try looking inside the cabinet to see if it has a caller ID card. The part ends in 93.

It also requires some programming. If you post your model number, I might have a CID card if yours is missing.

UNIDEN TRU8888-CALLER ID DOES NOT WORK


Hi

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.


Thanks

Caller ID Display


There is no setting in the phone that will show you the Caller ID number without the name. It sounds like your telephone company is not sending the name.
