Koodo Home Phone and Talking Caller ID

I have Koodo Home Phone and with my older service, my phone would read out the phone number (not name) when a call came in.  I believe it's called Talking Caller ID.  With Koodo it doesn't.  I'm happy to buy a new phone, but I'd like to get this feature back.  How do I a)turn it on or b)what phone model do I need to get it?

Thanks!

Did your old service provider have that as a feature or is it a feature with the phone?
It was a feature of the phone - I got caller ID from my provider and when the number - and name showed up on the ID screen of the phone the phone would read it out.  It would say "Incoming call from...9-0-2-6-2-5-1-1-1-1" for example.

My current setup (which is the same phone as I had before) still shows the number with Koodo Home Phone, but it doesn't read it out.

Have you tried checking the settings on your phone?  maybe the settings got reset when connecting to the home phone hub
