Question about GE 28111 Cordless Phone
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.
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.

- subscribe to a Caller ID service of
your service provider/telephone

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
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
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
