In reply to a post by Select17:
unfortunately I can't add spaces or hyphens to match it.
Why not?

All incoming calls have the hyphen.

I've looked through the instructions and what is mentioned about adding spaces only works for the name, the * key only produces the : symbol when pressed in the number section. Also the : symbol doesn't work when used as a space, I still get the hyphen.

Caffn8me's me post later links to a thread on the Sky forum with a guy reporting exactly the same issue.....

except that they are on Sky and you are on TT ...........

Which would leave only one other piece of kit in common, the Openreach TAMS ties in the exchange.....

The Sky user fixed his by replacing his phone for a different brand.

The seller of the item you linked to is 3 months overdue on their Companies House annual accounts. I would stay away!

My setup: Huawei HG612 VDSL2 modem. Linksys WRT1900ACS router. AAISP Home::1 80/20 150GB + copper pair on TTB (by request). Sync: 79987/20000 kbit/s, attainable ~91-94000/31-32000 kbit/s via ~180m of 1985 copper to ECI Cabinet 14, Milford Exchange (WMMFD)

BQM: IPv4 & IPv6

ISP Hx: Wanadoo ~2Mb (Orange takeover) > Freedom2Surf ~4Mb (TalkTalk takeover) > Virgin Media 10->30->50->70Mb (unnecessary second line as work reqd BT) > BT Inf 2 80Mb (04/17 rises, no retention offer) > Virgin Media 100Mb (awful pings) > AAISP 80Mb

I'm guessing that only works when entering the name and not the number as most of those characters would be invalid for a telephone number.

The phone is designed for use with a KS416 system. Not direct to public telephone system
If you look at KS416 the set up appears to be xxx xxx xxxx for interface
May work as phone but, not all functions will work correctly

Sorry, I wasn't intending to advocate that specific sellers wares ...

It was just the first cheap stand alone caller display unit I came across.
