Change time zone Dect 6.0 Dual handset

Model # DS3111-2

Everything works fine except the time stamp for logged calls is exactly 4 or 5 hours behind. The minutes are correct. There doesn't appear to be any way to change the time using the handset and the manual says nothing about it. Is it possible to change the time, or is it set by something else which is beyond the user's control?. I'm using a Voip service over DSL.

This place is a complete rip-off! They don't give you any help or advice, it's just a scam to get you to "sign-up" for paid service.

Can't set up the correct local time

The trick is to set the time and never have anyone call you :-)

Or, contact whoever your CID provider is and tell them the clock offset is wrong. In my case, I have a Packet8 box and I had to go in and make the time correct for my time zone. Access instructions were on their web site.

Change time zone Dect 6.0 Dual handset

Singerjaxfl, I used to have the same problem with my Vtech DECT 6.0 phone. I solved it by changing the system time on my VOIP Adapter.

In order to do that, you need to (1) know the IP address of your VOIP Adapter (the manual should have it, or ask its manufacturer), and (2) have the Admin authority (again, the manual or manufacturer) to change system time.

I have a partner acs rel 7 with a voice mail card (large) 16 mailboxes. I set the time to the correct time at ext. 10, and it holds for maybe 15 minutes or until a call rings in, then the system clock...

With the new firmware of the 5x9 syncs the time of the phone system from the data of Caller ID. The provider is sending the wrong time stamp on the caller ID.

They did that to compensate for the new daylight savings time change.

Strange functioning Caller ID

This is a long shot but worht asking, have you ever defaulted the system? You should default the system before installation and programming to clear out any bad data. If the system is brand new and the memory battery never turned on previously this would not be an issue.
