Question about GE 28111 Cordless Phone

Caller ID Problem on the GE2811 Twin cordless phone system

The caller id does not always display on the telephone sets.  We frequently receive the following error messages, "Incomplete Data" or "No data".

 

The correct data will appear on hand set 1, but it is not consistent. The caller id does not appear on hand set 2.

 

We do not have call waiting. We have had caller id for 5 years and it worked on the other telephone sets.

 

We have had the telephone sets for two weeks.  I am not sure what to try next.

 

Thanks

    Caller ID does not display on GE 28112 Series DECT 6.0 Cordless phone.



    Has two handsets caller ID does not display on either.


  • icecobra Nov 25, 2007

    Whenever I get a call it says "incomplete data". ONE time I was on the phone and got a call from a friend, and the mobile phone number did show up. Just got the phone, and I'm trying to figure this out.

  • nickmansell Nov 27, 2007

    Phone shows "INCOMPLETE DATA" when someone calls, and only shows the # and info AFTER the call. Never shows Caller ID when the phone rings.????!!!!! Every other phone has worked. WUWT??

    Caller ID info displays on handset 1 but handset 2 shows "no data" or "incomplete data" most of the time. VIP melody won't work on handset 2 because it can't detect the incoming phone numbers.



    It was like this right out of the box. I am considering returning the phone or sending handset 2 to GE for warranty repair.



    Any thoughts?

How to get the caller ID to work on the additional GE DECT phone handsets. You must follow these steps in the exact order :
#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 phone handsets start recognizing caller ID.

Message counter displays more than I have saved


I think you might be confusing the counter that keeps rack of caller ID information, and the counter that tracks messages stored in the answering machine - two different things, different purposes.

The answering machine part displays "new messages", but can store "old messages". For the caller ID part, look for a button on the handset that says "caller ID" - hit that, and then there will be a scroll up/down pair of buttons - you can look through your received caller IDs. Their may be a delete button on the phone (It's not clear what model you have), which will allow deleting that caller ID out of memory, but if not, having viewed the numbers, your "20" on the message counter should reduce.

How do you turn off talking caller ID on panasonic kx-tg4032?


This feature lets you know who is calling

without looking at the display.

To use this feature, you must:

- subscribe to a Caller ID service of

your service provider/telephone

company.

- turn this feature on (page 24).

When caller information is received, the

handsets and base unit announce the

caller's name or phone number received

from your service provider/telephone

company following every ring.

The unit announces in English only.

L Name pronunciation may vary. This

feature may not pronounce all names

correctly.

L Caller ID service has a limit of how

many characters can be displayed. If

the caller's name is too long, the

handset may not be able to display or

announce the entire name.

L The announcement is heard at the

same level as the ringer volume (page

16, 23).

L If you turn on the answering system

and set the number of rings "2

rings" (page 36), the unit does not

announce the caller information. If

"Toll saver" is selected and there

is a new message, the unit does not
announce the caller information.

Vtech model 2656 caller id is not working. How can I fix this?


Hello,

Found this on the VTECH support site regarding your model:

Tip 1 of 1
spacer.gif
Caller ID and Call Waiting ID are subscription services, available from most local telephone service providers. You must subscribe to these services in order for the features to work on your phone. Contact your local telephone service provider for more information.

In addition, your caller must be calling from an area that supports caller ID.

Both you and your caller’s telephone service provider must use compatible caller ID systems.

If you subscribe to DSL service for this telephone line, DSL filters must be plugged into EVERY phone jack that has a phone. The DSL signal can cause caller ID disruption, static, noise and other issues on your line. DSL filters block the high frequency DSL signals from being transmitted to the telephone. If you are not using the DSL filters provided by the telephone company, this will cause static/noise and possibly caller id issues on your phones.

In most cases, we recommend you connect the plug end of the DSL filter into the telephone jack, then connect a telephone cord between the filter and your phone.

Please contact your service provider to obtain DSL filters and installation information.

Caller ID and Call Waiting ID may not be available for every call. Common reasons are incompatibilities between your and your caller’s service, transmission errors and answering calls before the ID data is received.

In addition if you would like to contact them or get more info on your phone, then use this link:

Lucent Partner 18D - Caller ID not working


The caller id information is sent from your local telco provider after the first ring and might not be able to be extended to the individual sets, try backing off the ring to answer on your voice mail from 2 to 3 rings to see if the information is then passed on. The Voice Messaging System message is being sent from the system showing who transfered the call to you. You should also notice that the ring pattern when that message is displayed is a standard ring followed by a beep meaning a transfer is taking place.

UNIDEN TRU8888-CALLER ID DOES NOT WORK


Hi

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.


Thanks

Get incomplete data message instead of caller ID we pay for


Call the phone company. If you have another phone, plug that in and have someone call in, that will rule out the phone being the issue.

Caller ID is not working in India.


For people who have purchased cordless phone in usa and caller id is not working they should purchase fsk to dtmf converter at any local phone shop and caller id will start working.

Here is the article on various frequency used by various countries for caller id.

Hope this will help you out.

Detailed Product Description

There are 3 major caller ID specifications in the world: DTMF, ETSI FSK and Bellcore FSK. When users buy a foreign telephone devices(such as cordless phone, fax machine or computer telephony interface), may encounter the problems of non-match for caller ID standard. This will cause the device unable to display the caller ID. EX220 can solve this problem easily. This product can receive all 3 kinds of caller ID format, and convert to FSK(Bellcore or ETSI selectable) to match foreign telephone's standard.
EX220 has a rechargeable battery inside the device, during idle status, it gets power from the telephone line and recharge the battery, so no need to use or replace battery. Just plug one end to telephone line, and the other to the telephone device.
For example, if you live in Netherlands, Saudi or India, the caller ID standard is DTMF. You purchased a cordless caller ID phone from US(which uses Bellcore FSK standard), or from Germany(which uses ETSI FSK standard). You won't be able to use the caller ID feature. In this case, just get one EX220 and connect it between the telephone line and the cordless phone, your cordless caller ID phone will display the caller's number immediately.
Remark:
1. Telephone sets for UK and Japan standard are not applicable.
2. In some countries, users must subscribe to Telecom for caller ID service

Feature List
Caller ID Format Conversion --- Convert 3 kinds of caller ID(DTMF, Bellcore FSK or ETSI FSK) to ETSI FSK or Bellcore FSK(selectable)
Date/Time Stamp --- The DTMF caller ID doesn't content date/time stamp. User can set up clock of EX201, so each call will be sent with actual date and time stamp
Area Code Setting --- User can set up the area code, so the dial back feature can easily applied
Rechargeable battery powered by line --- Just connect to the telephone line, the built-in rechargeable battery can get power from the telephone line, no need any external battery nor power supply

News
Now, Multi-Line caller ID converter is available.
