There are several reasons that this could happen:
1. Your telephone company stopped the service, even though you are paying for it... Ask your telephone company to verify your Caller ID service is current.
2. There may be a problem with your Caller ID service. Ask your telephone company to check to see if there are any problems.
3. Sometimes the caller ID is delayed, try letting incoming calls ring at least twice before answering.
The "charge" light staying on is very unusual, It could mean that the battery is failing, but if it is working properly, don't worry about it.
The Star Talk Flash is a voice mail prduct. The caller ID feature is a phone system feature. If your system is a norstar CICS or a MICS the caller ID will work only if you have the caller ID capable central office circuit packs installed. Look on the card and see if the label has "CLID". If it dose there is also additional programming required for each set under.... terminals &sets/telco features/featue assignments/show line/caller ID...set:Y. You also have to program (under sets) /telco features/caller ID: Y.
If you have digital telephone with cable. First thing you should do is contact the billing department of your service provider. Make sure you are in billing for caller id. If you are let them know you are not receiving service you are paying for. Have them check your number in the switch. Which is the system that allocates each call that is made to and from your number. If this feature is not activated properly in the switch you might be paying for a service that is not properly activated. If all is correct with service provider. Try using another phone that has the caller id feature just to make sure it's not the actual phone. If both phones still doesn't display caller id. You should have your service provider send out a technician to troubleshoot your home telephone lines to make sure all phone jacks and telephone lines are secure and corrosion free, and have them verify service while there. You should also ask about a credit for the time the service was activated until the time the service actually worked.
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.
