Is there anything that can be done to improve the quality of the caller id displayon this clock/radio/telephone/caller ID? Even when I adjust the contrast and brightness buttons, I am unable to view the incoming call numbers, even though I can see "traces" of the numbers.
On the other hand the clock's time display is great -- easy to read.

Re: Conair CID400 Poor Caller ID Display
this problem points to 1 main thing:
your line voltage is low
how many phones are connected on the line?
if there are more then 3-4 its too much!
you got only 1-2 ?
call the phone company and tell them u got a low tone...

I you're running on a CiX or CTX platform, you're dealer or system administrator needs to enter the amount of CID calls to be buffered on that particular phone. This can only be done via the System Administration Program.
Hi trinigirl, You should not have to do anything to make the caller id information come through. There is no programming to perform for the regular caller id identification on your display after the second ring (it takes at least one ring cycle for the digital information to pass through). Your model also has the talking caller id function, which will announce in English the callers name or a custom name you can prepare in the phone book of handset number 1. With all that said, you are not getting caller id showing after the second ring, then your phone is bad (which is pretty rare for this symptom), or your phone line still does not have caller id activated. To troubleshoot your problem you need another phone line with working caller id and/or a different phone that is known good to pass caller id. That way you can interchange the phones/lines to see if it is your line or your phone. My guess it is your line somehow, though I have fixed phones that won't pass caller id, but rarely. If it is your phone, try rebooting it, thats about all you can do short of sending it in for repair. Let me know how it goes. CG
This is a Definity system phone. The phones themselves have nothing to do with caller ID, it's the system that handles it. The phone line has to have the caller ID service AND the phone system needs to collect the information and then display it on your phone. If you are sure caller ID service is available on the phone line you are using than this is a programming issue. Definity is a huge system and you cannot program it yourself. Someone in your building is either in charge of making simple changes in the phone system or contacting the company that makes these changes for you.
