Question about Uniden DCT7488 Corded / Cordless Phone

1 Answer

Got this phone used (Uniden DCT7488) - works great except caller ID won't show up. It shows up on another land line so I know it's functioning. The uniden only shows (incoming calls). Please help! Thanks!

    The only thing in the menu to change was the "caller ID on call waiting" - which was off but I turned on and caller ID still didn't work. I don't see anything else under menu to change to activate caller ID.

    I have the manual - not finding any help there, either.

Contact your phone company, some companies actually block caller IDs

    I have caller ID through the phone company and know it is working since it shows up on another phone that is hooked up.

    Then you're going to have to get into menu and activate it. Have similar unit at home & had to "turn on caller ID function"

    try powering down for 1 minute then power up and see if your change "took" and then see if caller ID works. Some can be temperamental

On my Uniden Cordless Tru9380 Series phone, how do I use caller ID ? please give deailed instructions as I've had it for 4 days & still cannot figure out how to do it. Help will be greatly...


Caller ID with Call Waiting is available by subscription from your Telephone provider. With this service, you will be able to view incoming caller information while on a call with another user.

This will allow you the ability to select to talk to this user and put your existing party on hold or make the decision to ring them back.

But, you must contact your Telephone provider and subscribe to the service.

Here is the link for the User Guide: http://www.uniden.com/pdf/TRU9380-4om.pdf

Remember, If you subscribe to Caller ID from your phone company, your phone will show you the caller's phone number and name (if available) whenever a call comes in. If you subscribe to both Call Waiting and Caller ID, the phone also shows you the name and the number of any call that comes in while you're on the line.

About a week ago we purchased a new cordless phone with a second handset for upstairs. It is a Uniden Dect 6.0. Without warning the 2nd handset's buttons ceased to function. It still receives signal but...


Try putting the 2nd handset in the base station for a few minutes. Sometimes this helps it reset.
Alternatively, just switch the handsets and see if that works.

Does the LCD just display "Incoming Call"? if so please list your model number and I might be able to help you further.

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

Uniden CXA15198 not showing caller id


Hi! There is a small device available in the market which is a converter. By connecting this between landline and phone, caller ID start display simply.

It cost to me Rs.450/- made by Fintel. Try to get it cheaper at your place.

Try this and the problem is solved.

Caller id


Some phones are not equiped to pick up call waiting caller id. check the box or look up your model number on the uniden site. The call waiting caller id only shows up on the phone that is in use at the time of the call.
