Uniden FP204 Corded Phone Issues?

Uniden FP204 Corded Phone Issues? Hey there guys,
Brought my parents the above phone and they are having a small issue with it,
when you pick up the phone to dial a number it dials a random 4 digit number before it starts to dial the number, after reading the limited manual that was provided im at a loss as to what it is. The number its dialing doesnt show up on the screen and 2 other phones in the same house seem to work, just not this one! just wondering if anyone knowz of a way to reset it to factory settings or something? cheers from them :)

It may be dialling0197 automatically before it dials. this number can be used before anything to withold caller id. iv never herd of a phone doing that but it may be possible.
