Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,Sorry I didn't see your question earlier and to hear of any issue you are having with your phones.To help you with this issue, may I ask:1) How many TOTAL cordless handsets do you have with this system, and if more than one, do ALL handsets NOT display the Caller ID?2) Do you have ANY other devices (phones, fax, etc.) attached to this same phone line and if so, are they display the Caller ID properly?3) WHEN did this issue first begin, or was noticed? Thanks

2 total handsets neither display caller id info. i also have a pc, fax and apple airport (wireless router) in the house. my wife thinks we got a talking caller id or at least a visual display on the tv screen when we either changed to or back from prism. not sure of time frame and she isn't here to ask right now.

Hi again, OK - can you TEST now - to see if the Caller ID shows on your TV (assuming it is ON, and you can have someone call you)? Thanks
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no thank you.
Expert:  Greg A. replied 1 year ago.
If you are seeing ANY additional offers of your side of the system, those are OPTIONAL and please feel free to turn those down. But can you do the TEST I mentioned (checking for Caller ID on the TV), and let me know if that works? Thanks
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
nothing shows up on the tv sets.
Expert:  Greg A. replied 1 year ago.
OK - has that feature (Caller ID on TV) EVER WORKED - with your CURRENT service provider? I only ask because that is sometimes a "feature" - that can be turned ON or off. Thanks

Hi again, I was reviewing our conversation here and notice that I did not ask for the model of the MAIN BASE UNIT of your Panasonic system. I also did not ask if the FAX system IS (or is not) showing the Caller ID - when calls come in (assuming it is attached to the same phone line). So may I ask those questions NOW? Thanks

Hi again,I see it has been a few days and I just wanted to follow up to see if you have any more questions concerning this issue or if the issue was resolved?I look forward to any further questions or results that you may have.Thanks, ***** ***** .-(im)
