This is a feature from your phone company you may have to pay extra for. Caller ID information is normally transmitted just after the first ring. When you are using call waiting there is no ring.

SOURCE: Caller ID not working
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.

SOURCE: Caller ID does not work
I FIXED IT!!! YIPEEE!!
What I did was UNPLUG the base's power unit from the wall... waiting about one minute, and plugged it back in. That caused it to "reboot" the entire system, and the CID now shows itself.

SOURCE: MagicJack Caller ID problem...
Not sure exactly what fixed it, but I updated my USB drivers, then updated the MagicJack software from the following site. http://digital-nomads.blogspot.com/2008/01/magicjack-software-update-available-for.html Also I made sure to restart my computer after all updates, with the MagicJack plugged in and the phone attached. I don't know if the update differs from the one offered on the MagicJack site, but it now works. I also found a site that offers a hardware fix that seems to work for some people useing a 100k ohm resistor but that didn't work for me. That info can be found at- http://www.magicjacksupport.com/inbound-cid-possible-fix-t108-15.html Thie site is an unofficial MagicJack forum, but some people claim it worked for them. Please let me know if any of this helps!

I'm pretty sure CID is automatic on a CICS....IF you have a CID trunk card. You might want to post the part number on the face of the trunk and we'll see if it's the proper one.

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.
