Caller ID is not working

Hello All, I bought this phone in USA and set it up at home in India. Though the called id feature worked in USA ( I set it up once in USA to check if the phone is working fine) but it does not in India. As a result, my call log does not store any information. I confirmed from the telephone company that CLI is activated on my phone line. Please help. Thanks, Samiran

Hello Samiran mandal, here is a solution.I purchased one cordless telephone (Siemens Gigaset) in Germany. I also had the same problem, caller-id did not work. I purchased this telephone because we can set different ringtones for different caller groups. But, if caller-id doesn't work, this feature also doesn't work. I had gone through internet and finally found that CA electronics, Bangalore has it and got it through courier (I live in Pondicherry). It worked flawlessly for two years. Then it stopped working. For 'no reason' I ordered for a 'caller-id' unit on ebay for Rs.75/- (+ Rs.75 shipping). I just got the unit and fixed it to my line. Very very surprisingly, my cordless telephone is now showing caller info. This is a real surprise to me. By the way, caller-id unit is "Eurotel" make, DTMF/FSK caller-id. I feel this is very nice solution. The 'caller-id' unit is nice (backlit display) and also there is no need of converter for using the caller-id feature of your foreign telephone. I connected caller-id between the line and telephone. That's all. Enjoy.

I must have gotten your unit. Mine did work ONCE after it had been installed for about a week. But it never worked again and we pitched it. Buy something else.

SOURCE: caller id

Caller ID in the USA uses the FSK standard. For the most part, caller ID in India uses DTMF (although I have heard of some FSK usage).

I am currently living in New Delhi and have an Airtel home phone line. My switch uses DTMF. I went to the Palika electronics bazaar (I aways use shop number 266 near gate 5, they seem to be a little kinder to foreigners as far as the "final price") and purchased an DTMF to FSK convertor. My US phones now show caller ID information, although using US number seperations ### - ### - ####. I paid R500 but you could probably get it for around R400 if you are willing to put in the time bargaining. It looks like they are also available on Indian Ebay.

Mine says UST001B. It looks like these are low volume items because they stuck the components into a box marked "DSL Splitter" It works to convert the caller ID as advertised.

SOURCE: 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

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.

Caller ID/CLIP) not working in Panasonic cordless


Well if the phone has been bought abroad and being used in India you will face this problem. this is because of the format of transmitting the caller id info being different. In USA it is STF and in India it is DTMF. You need a convertor in the phone line which is DTMF to STF. IF you find onw in Delhi pl let me also know.

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.

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.
