I just transferred to 2Degrees Broadband with Home Phone Plus, and have the following question about the landline.


Is it possible to get Caller ID to work? I have several Panasonic TG2723NZB handsets that are registered to the Fritzbox. I have not been able to get the number or ID of the incoming caller to display on the handset. 


Any chance of a remedy? Or are Fritz and Panasonic just not communicating?

My recollection of past reports of this problem is that caller ID is a bit hit and miss - it depends on the particular model.  How are you connecting to the FritzBox?  Via a FON port (analogue), or using the FritzBox as a DECT base station?  I have my Panasonic KX-TG1855NZ connected on a FON port of my 7390 and caller ID works.

I haven't used them in years but by the looks of some previous threads, I never could get the name displaying, but did get the number displaying on one of my panasonic handsets.

For the other one I just plugged the Panasonic base station into fritzbox ATA port and then full called id worked lol. See below thread:

Yep, our internal phone cabling is directly connected to the Fritzbox, and we get full caller ID on our Panasonic handsets. Never bothered trying to register them directly as this other method has worked from day one of getting fibre, whichever ISP we’re been with or router we had at the time.

Thanks for your comments, @fe31nz , @sidefx , @jonathan18 . I had searched in the forums and elsewhere, and 'hit and miss' seems to be a good summary of the situation when it comes to pairing the handsets to the Fritzbox. But wired connection through the RJ11 FON1 port works well, so I stick with that and use the convenient answerphone of the Fritzbox.


After all that I am wondering whether we still need a landline...

2degrees Home Phone  Plus comes with it’s own voice mail. You do not need to set it up on the Fritz.


To access I believe you dial 456


There can be a bit of a delay of silence, 5 to 10 seconds then it should connect. Info light flash’s on Fritz’s from memory when message there, and also if go to make call on handset there is a double quick beep sound.


I have a Panasonic wireless one, with the base station plugged into Fritz had no problems with caller ID.


I’ve just disconnected my landline as have a few thousand minutes on mobile, so didn’t see sense of it any more for my situation.

Thanks, @rugrat, I tried the @Degrees voicemail also, but preferred the voice of Fritz. And above all, I was taken by the Fritz Fon app, which lists a history of all in/out calls on the mobile, and replays voice messages when you touch the item. Beats trying to remember which button to press for what action.
