I've seen them take like 10 minutes to come back online after firmware update.  Just walk away from it. 

But I suspect that you didn't do that and power cycled it while it was updated therefore it is hosed now.   

Take care,

Jim, Dave is correct CI works on all ringing phones in CICS regardless of software version. MICS requires 6.1 or higher.

Ed, you need to turn Caller ID on each line in line programming and also the phone must be set to Ring before you can tell it to receive the CI info.

Are you saying that the lower version restricting to just one phone does NOT apply to a CICS ???
I did not know that.

But even on the MICS with the lower version.  Even if it cannot show when ringing,  You can do F811 to call for the ID INFO before you answer.

Nolt to disagree with Jim, but on any CICS & on any phone you can have Caller ID...

That depends on which software version you put in.
IF you are at 6.1 or higher, then basically any phone that rings can get caller ID.
If it is lower, than only 1 phone can on that ringing line.

6.1 and up:
Go into prog for EACH PHONE that has a ringing line.
Go to Telco / Feature assign / Show each line - first prompt is Caller ID Set:  make it YES.
Go to next ringing line - set to yes.
THEN go to next phone ext and repeat.
DS card will NOT show caller ID.
Nortel / Caller ID on a CICS?

Is there any special trick to receive caller ID on an CICS?  I recently replaced one and had to re-program it from scratch, which was no big deal.  I re-used the two C1 line cards and now they are not receiving caller ID information.  I tried a DS card in the same slot and no effect.  Is there a feature code or programming step that is needed for this to happen?

My 2017 Chevy Malibu offers to read me any texts i get while I'm driving. The H/F integration with the iPhone is excellent for voice and data.

Trace -

I believe you're hearing half the story. In the Apple, builders will often solicit the Buildings Department to build additional stories, or take up a larger footprint (then the code may allow for that area) when they're putting up a tower. The DOB will often grant them permission - IF - their building does something for the city.

For example: They can landscape outside, make their outdoor space into a mini-park and put in benches, fountains and the like. When IBM put up their NYC tower in the '80s they put a museum in. One of the things a builder can do (if their building spans a whole block) is to put an Atrium in with access to both streets. As a result of their getting a variance, the atrium is PUBLIC space and when the building is open, they have to allow people to pass through from one street to the other and perhaps hang out in the Air Conditioning for a reasonable amount of time.

A good example: In the late  '70s AT&T put up a tower on Madison Avenue and E.56th Street. They wanted permission to build up and out and offered to put in a public atrium and a communications museum in.  The City agreed. All went well till AT&T sold the building to Sony, who decided to rip out the atrium  and museum and rent out the space. The DOB told them they couldn't do that and Sony effectively told the City to F*ck off, that they'd see them in court.

Our Mayor then was Ed Koch. Ed said, no problem, we'd let the courts address the issue. But in the mean time, because the building was not in compliance with their code variances....

He pulled the Certificate of Occupancy for the building. The DOB plastered notices on all the entrances and the Police chained the doors shut. Sony was already occupying a good deal of the 37 story structure and no one could go to work that day.

Sony was in the Mayor's office the next day apologizing for the confusion. They reopened the Public space.

I'm sure you can understand the other side of the coin. In some areas the "undesirables" will use them to shoot up, solicit and have sex, urinate, vomit and crap all over- I'm sure there are other things they do also that I'm too innocent to know about. That's why the restrooms were restricted. And pity the poor employee that has to clean that disgusting mess then go back to preparing food.

Sam, I'm actually a little surprised businesses aren't required to make them available in NY.  Seems like I've heard that in NYC you have to allow pedestrians pass through the buildings to get from one block to the other.  I know in many places businesses are required by code to have a public bathroom.
