Subject: Panasonic CNID troubles Message-ID: <ijk8h3$n8c$1@reader1.panix.com> A friend has two Panasonic phone {systems}; a KX-TSC14B and a KXTG6700. My issue is CNID and their display/trapping of same. It appears that even when the carrier delivers straight 10D CNID, Panasonic displays it as 11D. As a result, when he hits Call Return, it dials 11D. And the carrier rejects it with a "you don't need a 1 to dial a local call.." message. Now, under MD PUC rules, 10D is correct for local; 11D for toll. The Order [72274; case 8705] has wording that said: A subscriber who mistakenly dialed 'one' plus the ten digit number would not be charged... and other carriers do just eat the unneed one. This one does not, alas. So there are 2 ways to solve this issue: fix the phones & fix the carrier. I am pursuing both. The Fine Manuals for the phone seem to say they you can manually edit the CNID before you return a call. Boy, that's nice... But they also say it will remember the NPA, and do the same thing the next time. Well, some of 301, 443, 240 and 410 are 10D local, not to mention 703..but not all. Only 202 is sure to be local. Is there any way to get the phones to stop editing and just store what it got, be it 10 or 11? As for the other approach; my contact says the 5E will need every line edited. I'm highly dubious but lack direect knowledge of 5E innards to say "Just go to VARIABLE nnn and change A5Y to X3F..." Any suggestions?
