      Sky Compatible Handsets?

      I've just switched to Sky Talk and everything works apart from Caller Display. I was told my handset wasn't compatible it's a Panasonic dect handset. Sky have sent me a new micro filter but it didn't work.

      Caller display worked on my Panasonic handset with my previous provider which was PlusNet.

      What handsets are compatible with Sky Talk?

      They are saying I need a new handset but I don't see why I need to fork out for handset because of Sky Talk UUL line.

      I also have a Panasonic DECT handset and Caller Display works fine but when we first moved over to a Sky line it didn't.

      Can't remember exactly what fixed it but it was nothing our end, they had to do something on the system because although Caller Display was showing as active on their system, it wasn't.

      Give the technical peeps a call again as I doubt different micro filters or the type of handset you have is at fault. For reference, we have a set of these:

      There has been some reported issues with some Panasonic phones in the past regarding Caller Display. I can't remember if it is related to the kit which you are connected to, which might explain why stereohaven's is now working.

      I can't remember which specific models, but a few that begin with KX don't seem to be compatible with the Sky network. 'Modified' microfilters, not standard ones, were sent out to see if it resolved some of the issues.
