Hello,

Its is possible that your incoming call has be barred from your phone or by your network/service provider. You or someone else may have tempered with the call barring setting on your phone or maybe its a fault from your service provider.

Turn off the phone, remove the battery and Sim card (if any) fix them back in, go to phone setting, go to call barring and make sure it is canceled/turned off and try again. Or factory reset the phone and try again.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, then it means your service provider is the cause of the problem. Call the customer section of your service provider which is suppose to be too free, make then aware of what's going on with your phone and a solution should be proffered by then. Or if their office is not far from your home, you can walk down there and they should be able to fix it for you.

Good luck.

Caller id is not working in my cordless phone. Instead of number of a caller, "Incoming Call" is showing. Please help me


Caller ID on landline phones relies on signals from the telephone service provider. Some companies charge extra if you wish to enable the service, others include it automatically, so you need to check with them first.

Even if you have caller ID enabled, callers can choose to withhold their number. Large companies which make lots of outgoing calls (especially cold callers) often have their service set to automatically withhold their number. In many countries, all other callers can choose to do so by prefixing all dialled numbers with a short code, e.g. in the UK it's 141. Mobile phone callers can usually alter a setting on their handset so that caller ID is withheld when making outgoing calls.
