Your TV Caller ID will not work if you are watching an HD channel or if the Guide or Info Bar is displayed on the screen or if you are listening to one of the Stingray Music channels at the time the call comes in. If your TV Caller ID is not working and none of these conditions apply:
- Turn off your cable box, unplug it for 30 seconds and then plug it back in and turn it on again.
- This often resolves most issues. However, if it does not, please contact our help desk at 204-725-4300 or 1-800-665-3337.
Dialing 911 connects the caller to a local Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). Although the call is connected to a dispatcher, the dispatcher may not have all of the caller's information such as name or address. Enhanced 911 (E911) provides a data stream along with the call so that when a customer is connected to a PSAP, the dispatcher has the caller's name and address for faster response. Similar to major phone companies, Westman Home Phone provides our customers with E911 service.
