UNIDEN TRU8888-CALLER ID DOES NOT WORK

Dear all,
I bought uniden model TRU8888 cordless phone(factory serviced) in USA during May 2009 and now using in India. Network provides caller ID and is enabled. Caller number is not blocked.Still the base and hand set shows only "Incoming Call" and does not display the caller ID. Except this pnone, all other phones connected to my line displays caller ID. The network telephone company confirmed that the the caller ID on my line has been activated and if it is not displayed, they say the problem is with the phone only. Any help to solve my problem will be highly appriciated.Thans-Dr.NSN.Ratnam

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
Rylee

Uniden cordless phone caller id quit working


Using the Caller ID and Redial Lists
Caller ID (CID) is a service available from your telephone provider that shows the phone number (and sometimes the caller's name) of incoming calls. Contact your telephone provider for more information.
Caller ID list



Redial list



When a call comes in, the phone displays the number and name (if available) of the caller.
The phone saves the information for the last 30 received calls to the

CID list.
When it's in standby, the handset shows how many calls came in since the last time you checked the CID list.


Each handset remembers the last 5 numbers you dialed on it. The redial list is separate for each handset.

CID not working


There are two main types of Caller ID used in the US, most Uniden phones will work with either type, you just need to set it to type "A" or type "B". If you will post your model I will be happy to tell you how to change it or you can call Uniden Customer Service at 800-297-1023

My uniden phone bought in USA does not display called ID thouhgh BSNL has enabled it. My cheap chinese phone was displaying it. Any help?


Caller ID standards are different in India and the USA, so Caller ID function will not work. You need to purchase a converter which converts from DTMF to Bell FSK standard.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!

The id caller is not working in that cordless phone


Any Caller Id phone bought in USA will not show the id as the Caller id format in USA is FSK and in India it is DTMF. You need a caller id converter from DTMF to FSK. It is available online on www.ebay.in Just type DTMF to FSK converter and the item will be displayed. Right now it is avilable only with a seller in Bangalore and the price is Rs.589/- per piece. I bought it and it is working fine.

CALLER ID ONLY SHOWS "INCOMING CALL"


I was using this site while trouble shooting this in the US...
If the customer has DSL with filters in the same system go back to the NID and Isolate the DSL,
test the caller id and call waiting caller id. If this works you have Data Bleed coming from the DSL.
Make sure there are not two sets of filters on the line. Tjis customer had a filter with the DSL modem.

Doing this we just fixed an on going problem for a field tech who was the second callout on a customer issue.

Caller ID not working in India


I too purchased an Uniden phone for India. Everything except the caller ID works fine. The caller ID wont work as the technology used in India is different. Try purchasing a FSK to DTMF converter or a separate caller ID box.
