Land line keeps announcing number of incoming call

We have a Uniden phone  for the landline ( i have no idea how to find the model number)

Since we cut across to Telstra for the NBN, the phone keeps announcing the number of the incoming call

I suspect it is a Telstra option but I cannot find it.

How do we stop it?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: Land line keeps announcing number of incoming call

Hi - that feature requires Caller ID to be active on the telephone service, so it is best to keep the Caller ID feature ON in the Telstra Network for your Contact List name display information.. You should be able to Disable the Caller ID Announce feature in the Base Station programming - look for something like this - could it be a modern  XDECT 8355 Series system.


Using Caller Announce - I would have expected this menu to be in the Base Station sub menu but it shows on a web search as being under the Handset menu.

Press MENU/OK and scroll to Handset Setup. Press MENU/OK to select it.
Scroll to Caller Announce; press MENU/OK to select it.

Select On or Off and then press MENU/OK to select it.
