Caller ID?

I've never used this feature in my life.
Before starting paying £1 p.m. for the privilege, I want to make sure that my handset supports this.
The manual says:
Quote
When you receive a call from the fixed line network, the caller's number is displayed on the screen if the following conditions are met:
* Your fixed line network provider supports CLIP, CLI:
- CLI (Calling Line Identification): number of the caller is transmitted
- CLIP (Calling Line Identification Presentation): the caller number is displayed
* You have arranged CLIP with your network provider.
*  The caller has arranged CLI with the network provider
The phone is Siemens Gigaset S5685 IP (S5675 IP?).
Can anybody confirm that this will work and that it is just a matter of ticking "Caller Display" box in my "Home Phone Control Panel"?

Actually I'll amend that to it "should" work fine.
My Gigaset (non IP) phones are all happy with the CLID that Plusnet send.

My Gigaset is fine with it, too, but I don't know if it's one of these "IP" phones (whatever that is).
