Question about Motorola Mobility MA580 (612572111116) Cordless Phone
A few weeks ago, when I would call someone from my cordless phone, my number started not showing up and my name comes up as 'unknown caller'. when I call from a corded phone from the same location, my phone number comes up and so does my name. I called my phone company (Verizon) and they said they could find nothing wrong, but deleted and then reinstalled my caller ID. they said I probably needed a new battery for my cordless phone. so I bought one for $13 bucks, and there's no change, my number still doesnt show up and I'm still an 'unknown caller'. is there a setting on the phone that I'm missing? seems like this all started when we had to begin using 1-area code-number for our local calls. maybe a coincidence.

Open this link; go to the FAQ's for an MD760/MD761 and it solved my similar problem for my phone. Primarily, you will be resetting your system (almost like rebooting) and if necessary, deregister and follow with registering. I did not have to do the last part (deregister), but it does work. Good luck. http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/support/default.asp?supportSection=CordlessPhones

SOURCE: The screen became blank
I would say the LCD is dead. They seem prone to that because we have had to replace two handsets with exactly the same problem. The one lost the top row of the screen, the second is completely screendead. Though all is not lost. Any GAP compatible cordless handset will work with that base, so you can replace them and not have to buy an entire system :) Ebay is a good source for handsets only.

The batteries that are in most cordless phones, and even cell phones, have a "memory". If the battery is constantly being fully discharged from a lack of charging, or if it's used to being on the charger all the time, it will reduce the life of the battery substantially. You'll need to get a new battery, and try to make sure that the phone is placed back on its charger every night before you go to bed. This should allow the battery to receive a full charge each night to prevent full discharge and lengthen the life of your battery. I went through about 2 or 3 batteries once before I found this out. I'm sure that you'll find this helpful and it should save you a few bucks in not having to replace your battery as often. Please rate me accordingly, if it's not too much of a bother. Thanks and have a nice morning!
