You must have the phone number in your contacts exactly like the number calling you or you won't see it. If that doesn't work, check your settings to see if you allow caller id. If that doesn't work make sure your telephone company has caller id turned on for your phone. Good Luck

Whenever you see Unknown Number, there is no way for you (or anyone) to determine who the call was from. Typically, Unknown means that no caller ID was passed with the call. If the call came from a VoIP source (like Vonage for example), no caller ID is passed. Also, if the call came from a business that does not pass caller ID (and has an old PBX, for example), then you won't see caller ID. Unknown does not mean that the caller ID was blocked. A blocked caller ID will show up as Blocked or Private (based upon the device and carrier receiving the call). Please understand that there is no possible way to trace an unknown call whether it arrives on a cell phone or landline.

How to eliminate calls you don't want


Add your phone number to the national "Do Not Call" list at www.donotcall.gov.
Also, your phone may just be missing the information it needs to decipher the data. Try getting a cheep caller ID unit and connect it to you phone line. See if it registers the phone numbers in question.

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
