  • Depending on what service level you are on, governs what you will see for your inbound Caller ID.
  • Basic users will only be passed the phone number for inbound calls. If you use a handset that allows you to store names and numbers, you can program the phone to display the name as well.
  • Premier subscribers will be passed both name and number for inbound caller id, as long as the carrier routing the inbound call provides that information.
  • Check to make sure the phone you are using does not have a storage limit. Phones with a limit will stop displaying correctly until the caller id feature is reset. 50 names is the typical maximum.
  • Please try using a different phone in the phone port and retest to see if the issue persists
  • If your set up includes splitters, fax machines, caller id boxes, etc., unhook everything from the phone port and hook only a phone to the phone port and retest to see if the issue persists.
