Show name on Caller ID

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Roopinder Randhawa, Oct 8, 2003.

  1. Hi! I have a frioend on T-Mobile. Whenever he calls a landline the caller ID
    shows his complete name. When I call it shows number and "Wireless Caller"

    Does Verizon support the feature of giving name on Caller ID?

    This is one of the biggest pet peeves I have on VZW.

    You'd think that since landline VZ phones support caller ID w/name that
    VZW would do the same.

    I wonder if its a cost issue, or an implementation issue?

    I do know that caller ID requires the use of accessable databases and
    the called party's central office does a 'database dip' on the calling
    party's caller ID name database.

    Only the number is transmitted when you make a call. The name part comes
    from cooperation from the calling party's phone company and the called
    party's phone company for the database dip. If there is no agreement,
    you'll only get the name.

    My guess is that this is the key. Technologically speaking it *is*
    possible. Its whether or not that VZW wants to implement it (or spend
    the money to implement it).

    The problem is that the landline ID cannot display "Roopinder Randhawa". It
    has no problem with your friend, "Tom Smith" because his name is shorter.
    You may wish to reprogram your phone's registration to, "It's ME!"

    You're welcome.

    On fix that works for me is when you input a presons number in your
    phone book, don't include the 1 before it. Then the phone I guess reads
    it from your phonebook and the name appears.

    He's talking about the other way around. He wants his name to show up
    on a landline's CID box when he calls from his VZW phone, not the
    other way around.
     
  6. His name is longer than mine. But atleast some part of it shows up on the
    CID box.
    I have no idea why it is like this with VZW. With T-Mobile instantly.
    Altough I like the VZW service a lot. Just a little more pie is what I want.

    If all of those who wish to have that option would contact VZW and ask
    for it, maybe they would consider adding it (for a small additional
    monthly fee, of course.:)).
     
  8. You are a complete idiot.

    Hmmm. Lost your sense of humor, Old Timer?

    She told me she wants to ask, "Exactly what did you

    She hasn't done that. Yet.

    Reminds me of the people who don't have an "any key".

    Although most directory assistance offices give you the option of
    having them dial the number automatically (for a fee).

    LOL! You ought to send that to cartoonist Brown for his Beetle Bailey comic
    strip. "Gizmo" is trying to teach Gen. Halftrack how to use a computer. This
    would be a good line!

    It would be if it weren't tripping on its whiskers.
