Does Koodo Wireless Home Phone have name display for incoming calls like traditional landlines (e.g. Bell home phone service)?

I tried searching but could not find anything that indicates it does. I know it has number display but I'm specifically looking for name display for contacts not saved in the phone.

Yes, it does, if the calling party supports it. No difference from a landline :)

Peter, it depends on the person's cell phone provider. Currently only a few providers offer name display, so you'll only see names from those providers.

Hi Sophia, that bring up another question from me.. sorry.

What if the incoming caller is from a landline and not cell phone and the number has a name registered. Will that name be displayed? Or is this only for incoming cell phone calls?

Any provider that offers name services (I believe all landlines do) will come in to your wireless home phone with the proper name displayed :) As long as your phone has a display that offers letters and not just digits, haha.
