My number comes up as restricted when I call people with caller ID. I work for a school district and don't want my calls restricted. The phone company says it is not restricted on their side and it must be a function of my phone. The manual says nothing about it. I have an RCA 2540RE3 executive series

Panasonic KX-TA624/824 automatic Caller ID logging
How to set up automatic Caller ID logging
in the KX-TA624 phone system with KX-T7735 phones. (for dash four and five, and KX-TA824) System Programming:
In System Program number 900, enable Caller ID for the lines you have Caller ID on. (To get into system programming, press Program * # 1234.)
In System Program number 901, select your own area code and any other area codes that don't have to be dialed when making a call. The area code digits are removed from Caller ID log information so you can return a call without dialing unnecessary digits which would mess up the call.
In System Program number 902, if necessary, indicate the number of digits to be removed, and a particular digit (usually 1) that might have to be added, when returning a local phone call. The default programming is to remove the first three digits, and add nothing; which is correct for most locations.
In System Program 903, if necessary, indicate the number of digits to be removed, and up to 4 digits that might have to be added, when returning a long distance phone call. The default programming is to not remove any digits, and add a 1; which is correct for most locations.
In System Program number 909, enable Call Log Assignment for each phone where you want to log Caller ID information. You can use * to indicate you want logging at all phones.
Get out of system programming. (Press Hold or End, then Program.)
Program a button for Caller ID Indication on each phone where you want to log Caller ID information. Press Program, then the button you want to use for Caller ID Indication (we recommend the top button in the left column), then 96, then Store, then Hold, then Program. (If you want a phone to record Caller ID information individually, rather than for the whole system, use 6 instead of 96.)
At each phone where you want to log all calls, press intercom, then 7382#.
The Caller ID Indication button will light up only when the system has logged UN-answered calls.
Use the Navigator Key at the lower right corner of the phone to scroll through Caller ID information.
You can erase the entire Caller ID log by pressing Intercom, then 70**#
You can erase an individual Caller ID record by pressing Transfer while the information is displayed.
If your phone does not have a Navigator Key, you can program an available button for Caller ID Selection. Press Program, then the button you want to use for Caller ID Selection, then 97, then Store, then Hold, then Program. (If you want a phone to record Caller ID information individually, rather than for the whole system, use 7 instead of 97.)
To call a number displayed on the Caller ID log, pick up the handset or press the speakerphone button, and press the Caller ID Indication button.
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
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
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.
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.
Did you fully charge your phone? - Make sure you fully charge for 16-24 hours .
Is the battery old? - Replace the battery.
Is the electrical outlet switch turned on? - If you are using AC (electrical) power, make sure that the unit is connected to a non-switched electrical outlet.
Are the connecting wires tight - Unplug the AC power converter from the unit and plug it back in.
Do you have CallerID service with your telephone company - In order to receive CallerID records, you must subscribe to the standard name and number CallerID service available through your local telephone company. If the CallerID works for normal calls but not on Call waiting calls, then you must contact your phone company to get the combined CID/CW service.
CallerID shows up after second ring - Be sure to wait until the second ring before answering. CallerID signals comes through after the first ring, if caller pick ups phone too soon CallerID signal will not be transmitted to the handset.
Confirm that callerID is still working on that particular line by checking another phone on the same line - If CallerID is not coming through contact your phone company provider.
If this does not fix your problem, contact your authorized Service Center.*
Please download this manual, and study e.g on page 21 About caller ID
If you subscribe to caller ID service from your local telephone company, this feature displays the
name and telephone number of the caller before answering a call (even when you are on another
call). The caller ID features of this product will work only if you subscribe to caller ID service and
both you and the caller are in areas offering caller ID service, and if both telephone companies use
Contact your local telephone company if:
• you have both caller ID and call waiting, but as separate services (you may need combined service),
• you have only caller ID service, or only call waiting service,
• you do not subscribe to caller ID or call waiting services but wish to try them.
There may be fees for these services, and they may not be available in all areas.
This product can be used without subscribing to either caller ID or combined caller ID with call waiting
service, although the caller ID features of this product will not function.
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.
There are a few services that make it easy to find the real number of a blocked or restricted caller. They do cost money (some as low as $5.00 per month to unmask numbers) to use with your cellphone.
You can even get the name and address of a blocked caller. Check into caller id unblocking services. Hopefully that will help you out.
Unblock restricted numbers with Trapcall's Bug Trap
Even at its factory defaults your Siemens handset should be showing the caller id after the second ring. Look at your time and date on the phone, if they are not accurate then the caller id signal is not coming through since when activated caller id will not only give you the caller information, but it syncs with the telephone companys clock too. If I were there, I would take a phone that is known to have its caller id working and plug it in your line and see if caller id shows up on it. If it does show caller id, then there is something wrong with your Siemens base. If it does not, then your phone company dropped the ball and caller id is not activated. Then I would take the Siemens phone to another line (neighbor or friend) that has working caller id and plug my Siemens into it and see if it shows up. Doing all that will isolate your problem, I guarantee it.
