    Mine still works. Have you gone into the actual Caller ID section and turned notificaitons off then back on again? Also, one time I had to clear out the 25 stored calls and then it worked fine again.

    I was just editorializing, I had Caller ID with TIme Warner and it got very intrusive, so I didn't plug a phone line into the Genie. I am, however, having a problem with the Genie maintaining a network connection.

    You might also check the plug into the phone line. For what ever reason, any time I lose caller I'd, I find that “some gremlin" has knock the phone jack. Aft reseating it, it comes right back on.
