Call Display on home phone via ZTE WF721

I purchased a new "wired" phone for our house which actually connects through a Koodo ZTE WF721 home phone hub.  I am noticing that all calls come through with a 1 in front of the caller ID number, which results in a broken up display, eg.  905-779-xxxx is displayed as 190-577-9xxxx (where xxxx=the last four digits of the displayed number).  I am not sure if this a function of the phone or the Koodo service.  Anyone have any ideas about this?  The wired phone is an ATT CL2902.

This sounds like a function of the phone.
Have you checked the settings of this phone?

hi John,
I think the display was normal. The (+1) in front of the number 905  is Canada country code. This is the case for incoming calls on cellphone.
