Regarding the Caller ID issue, make sure that the CPCTimeThreshold
parameter is set to 90
and that the CallerIDTrigger
parameter is set to After First Ring
. Don't forget to save the changes and reboot your OBi110.

Regarding the no dial tone issue, you should be using the BT to RJ11 cable that came with your corded/DECT telephone along with one of these
Using an RJ11 to RJ11 from the OBi's phone port to your corded/DECT telephone isn't recommend, even if you get a dial tone there is a possibility that your telephone might not ring when receiving incoming calls. If you insist on going down the RJ11 to RJ11 route, try using a 2 wire straight through cable. What I have found in the past is that some telephones require a crossover cable, others straight through. Not sure why, it might be down to where they were manufactured and what region they were originally designed to be used in. As such, there is no one RJ11 to RJ11 suits all solution for UK users.
It's about time that VoIP ATA manufacturers included a RJ11 TO BT ADAPTER W/RING CAPACITOR when selling within the UK. It's really frustrating waiting for delivery only to find once unboxing the unit that you can't connect your phone to it!
FYI, the 4 wire XO cable that comes with the OBi110 isn't for connecting a corded/DECT telephone to the OBi's phone port, it's for connecting a US PSTN line to the OBi's line port.
