We have caller i.d. with three main phones in our offices. My phone (#1 base) has stopped showing the caller i.d. information on the display area. What can I do. The other phones are OK.

What is "Bell" and "Cogeco"? Did you change phone line provider companies? If so, you would need to ask them if it's possible to change. You are getting the information they are sending you. I do not believe the information is being altered by your phone.
I contacted GE today and they told me how to get the caller ID to work on the additional handsets. You must follow these steps in the exact order given.
#1 - unplug the base phone
#2 - unplug the telephone line from the base phone
#3 - remove the battery packs from the phones
#4 - wait 10 minutes.
reverse the order when assembling. Put battery packs in phones, put the telephone line back in the base phone and lastly plug all phones back in. It takes about another 10 minutes after that before all phones start recognizing caller ID but it now works fine.
Wow..SAME thing...this phone system has gotten to be about 10 years old and the gurus or factory service won't help you out too much because of the bell and whistles it has...and time is money eventually...keypad membranes go bad..bugs get in them...the crawlly ones...if they share the place..my "initialization" left me throwing away the headache and going to Walmart...FIX YA!!!!!
